We already know that Katherine Heigl will not reprise the role of Dr. Izzie Stevens on Grey’s Anatomy’s alternate reality episode (Season 8, Episode 13: “If/Then”). But that doesn’t mean she isn’t coming back at all.

In a new interview with E!, Katherine admits that she would “totally” say yes if Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes asked her to come back. Here’s what she said:

“I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is. I just want to know what happened to her and where she went and what she's doing now. My idea is that she actually figures it out and finds some success and does really well in a different hospital, because she was always floundering and one step behind the 8-ball and I wanna see that girl like, take some power back.”

Whoa! Katherine confessed that she doesn’t know if it’s really in the cards, however, considering how many new characters and story lines there are at the moment on Grey’s.

If those rumors about the show’s stars, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) and Patrick Dempsey (Derek) not returning after this season prove true, then we would gladly accept Izzie back on the small screen. We just hope she isn’t followed by ghosts.
