Cristina Yang Is Officially Not Returning to \'Grey\'s Anatomy\' (PHOTOS)

Bad news for Grey’s Anatomy fans, Cristina Yang is officially not returning for Season 13.

Though die hard fans were hoping Sandra Oh’s character would return to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, it doesn’t look like it’s in the works

"I've gotta tell you those rumors, I don't know who starts them but it really is tough," the actress said to ET Canada. "No, I have no plans to return to Grey's anytime soon."

Though our beloved Cristina isn’t coming back, we can’t help but imagine what her storyline would be like if she did. Check out the gallery above to see how Dr. Yang could return, if she wanted.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 premieres on Thursday, September 22, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
