Fans of “Grey’s Anatomy” can remember several years ago when Cristina Yang, played by Sandra Oh, was left on her wedding day by the love of her life. Well guess what, he’s coming back! People reported on March 7 that Isaiah Washington, who played the character Dr. Preston Burke, will be returning to the show this spring.

Washington was fired in 2007 from “Grey’s Anatomy” after making comments about a co-star’s homosexuality. It is now being confirmed that he will be coming back to the hit drama for a one episode appearance.

Sandra Oh is leaving the show this spring and fans will be sad to see her go. The show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, said that Dr. Burke was an important piece of Cristina’s life. She said, "Burke is vital to that journey – he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang."

“Grey’s Anatomy” is currently in its tenth season. New episodes are airing Thursday nights on ABC at 8 p.m. CST.
