Sarah Drew is reprising her role of April Kepner on Grey's Anatomy. Sadly, this will just be a guest role, so fans won't be getting her full-time.
There is no news on how she will return, but it will be during the current season (season 17).
At the end of Grey's Anatomy's 14th season we saw the departure of prominent female character April (played by Sarah Drew). According to E!, the decision to take her off the show is based on a "creative direction" for season 15.
"The characters of Arizona and April are permanently woven into the fabric of Grey's Anatomy thanks to the extraordinary work of Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew,"Krista Vernoff, co-showrunner and executive producer on Grey's Anatomy, said in a statement. "As writers, our job is to follow the stories where they want to go and sometimes that means saying goodbye to characters we love. It has been a joy and a privilege to work with these phenomenally talented actresses."
It will be interesting to see how April will make her way back to the screen.... Do you think April and Jackson will get back together on Grey's Anatomy?
