It’s been seven years in the making, and on Thursday (May 1), it’s finally happening. Burke is back on “Grey’s Anatomy!”
Isaiah Washington makes his big return to the ABC medical drama seven years after exiting the series in the episode, “We Are Never Getting Back Together,” as a part of Sandra Oh’s farewell as she departs the series after Season 10. Creator Shonda Rhimes has said that it was necessary to bring Burke back to give closure to Cristina’s story before she leaves.
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
