Izzie’s going to have her hands full when “Grey’s Anatomy” returns from its holiday break next month.
“There will be a love triangle for my character,” Katherine Heigl, who plays Dr. Isobel “Izzie” Stevens on the hit ABC show, told reporters recently, according to AP Radio.
The 27-year-old actress also hinted about upcoming developments: “There’s like some kind of prom episode or something, I don’t what that is. Somebody leaves the program.”
But, she added: “I don’t know what happens with Meredith and Dr. McDreamy. Nobody will tell us yet what’s going on there.”
Ellen Pompeo stars as Dr. Meredith Grey, a first-year intern, and Patrick Dempsey plays neurosurgeon Derek Shepherd, nicknamed Dr. McDreamy. Meredith was getting cozy with Derek — until his sexy wife showed up in Seattle.
“I love when people come up to me and tell me that they watch it. And ask like, ‘Do you think Ellen and Patrick are going to get back together?”’ Heigl said. “I love that because we’re working hard and it’s great to know that that work is being appreciated.”
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs on Sunday nights (10 p.m. ET). The medical drama returns Jan. 8.
