Fans have said goodbye to a lot of doctors throughout the 15 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. Some departures were an emotional gut-punch (George was John Doe!), while others painted a happy ending for the exiting doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital (enjoy Switzerland, Christina). In the case of Sara Ramirez, her character Callie Torres moved to New York to follow her girlfriend Penny, meaning she’s still alive and can return to Seattle at any time. According to Ramirez, she would like that time to be now.
Now starring on the CBS series Madam Secretary, Ramirez tweeted this week that she would love to return to the hit ABC series. We would also love that.

It looks like there’s a possibility that Callie could be scrubbing in once more. During a Q&A in August, Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes said that there was an attempt to have Callie Torres make an appearance in the Season 14 finale of the hit ABC show. “We tried. CBS has a hold of her. Because she is on another show, and we can’t get her. But we love her. Always. This is her home. Come home Callie,” said Rhimes.
Ramirez played orthopedic surgeon Callie Torres for 10 seasons on Grey’s Anatomy, leaving the medical drama in Season 13. Her character continued to have a presence throughout Season 14, with Callie’s ex-wife Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) often shown in scenes speaking on the phone with her ex, eventually deciding to follow Callie and their daughter Sophia to New York at the end of Season 14 after Callie revealed she was single.
With Ramirez starring on Madam Secretary, her return to the Seattle hospital likely wouldn’t be fulltime, as we’ve seen this season with Kim Raver back as Dr. Teddy Altman after a seven-season absence. But with Wednesday night’s season premiere introduction of the Ortho Gods played by Chris Carmack and Alex Landi, we could see Torres returning to help perform a groundbreaking orthopedic surgery. You know, bones in places they shouldn’t be, Grey Sloan Memorial doctors making medical history. We’ll leave the details up to the writers.
