Katherine Heigl's Reaction to Grey's Anatomy Ending

After original Grey's Anatomy star Justin Chambers suddenly left the series halfway through season 16, fans were left wondering how his character, Alex, would be written out of the show. In a shocking turn of events in the March 5, 2020 episode, it was revealed that Alex had left Seattle to be with his former flame, Izzie. The two were happily living on a horse farm in Kansas with their young twins. Alex had written heartbreak letters to his wife, Jo, and closest friends, explaining that he reconnected with Izzie after years of no contact, leading up to the trial to reinstate Meredith's medical license.

Surprising Reaction from Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl, who was promoting her upcoming Netflix series, Firefly Lane, admitted that she hadn't watched the episode. When filled in on Alex and Izzie's surprising reunion, she raised the point of Alex seemingly leaving Jo for Izzie. She asked, "Wasn't he with someone?" Heigl did not seem entirely supportive of the way Alex's storyline concluded with Izzie.

Heigl on a Possible Return to Grey's Anatomy

Even amid the returns of other original cast members to the current season, Heigl doesn't seem too keen on returning to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital one more time. "I'm super focused on this show and my passion for it," she said of Firefly Lane. Although she didn't rule out the possibility entirely, she mentioned that it wasn't likely.

Firefly Lane and '80s Nostalgia

In contrast, Heigl and co-star Sarah Chalke are fully invested in their new Netflix drama. Firefly Lane follows two best friends, Tully and Kate, over three decades, starting from when they meet at 14. The series explores their enduring bond, which goes through numerous trials, triumphs, and heartbreaks, as well as a love triangle that threatens their friendship. Heigl and Chalke both expressed that revisiting the '80s was a delightful part of their experience with Firefly Lane.
