Grey’s Anatomy: after his failed departure, Justin Chambers soon back in the series?

In recent years, “Grey’s Anatomy” has been marked by the return of many emblematic characters for an episode. And there is an actor, who left the medical series in 2019, who could well make a comeback…

More than three years after his hasty departure from Grey’s Anatomy, Justin Chambers, who played the character of Alex Karev for nearly 16 years, could make a comeback in the medical series.

The actor teased a potential comeback in an Instagram post published on Tuesday. He shared a photo of a coffee mug adorned with a Grey’s Anatomy promotional image, captioned “A cold cup of Grey’s”.

A photo that left room for doubt. But according to information from TVLine, this is all just a rumour. A source close to the medical series has indeed maintained that Alex would not be back at Gray Sloan Memorial. “There’s no truth in this rumor” she added.

Besides a small role in the miniseries The Offer, Justin Chambers has played very little since his controversial departure from Grey’s Anatomy. The actor’s last episode aired in November 2019, but at the time viewers didn’t know he would never see the character of Alex Karev again.

It was only two months later that his departure was publicly announced. Justin Chambers then returned to do the voiceover for his farewell episode in March 2020 which revealed Alex leaving his wife Jo to get back together with Izzie who had secretly had his children. A sloppy ending that had greatly disappointed fans of the medical series.

There is no good time to say goodbye to a series and a character who have meant so much in my life for the past 15 years“, he had declared at the time of the announcement of his departure.

However, for some time now, I have been longing to diversify my roles and my career choices. And, as I turn 50, blessed by my remarkable and supportive wife and 5 wonderful children, the time has come.

Leaving Grey’s Anatomy, I want to thank the ABC Family, Shonda Rhimes, original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, all the rest of this incredible team, past and present, and of course the fans for this extraordinary journey.
