Shonda Rhimes is one of the biggest names in American Television. She has served as producer of hit shows like How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal and has moved to the behemoth of Netflix to enjoy more creative freedom (as well as a $150 million base salary).
Recently, Rhimes dedicated some of her (clearly) valuable time to her fans on Instagram and invited questions via her Insta Story.
Fans quickly obliged and began to fire away.
First, a fan asked about Kate Walsh’s character who later had her own spinoff, Private Practice.
“Do u have any plans to bring back Addison Forbes Montgomery?? I neeed her “
“I need Addison Forbes Montgomery too! I can’t bring back people who don’t exist, in terms of availability. Kate Walsh is busy people. She’s busy!”
The next questions was about Sara Ramirez who is currently Kate Sandoval in Madame Secretary.
“Are you going to bring back Callie anytime SOON “
“Let me tell you something, we tried! CBS has a hold of her, because she’s on another show and we can’t get her out. But we love her…ALWAYS. This is her home. Come home, Callie.”
Last, a fan wanted to know Shonda’s character pick.
If you could bring any greys character back who would it be?
The Grey’s creator surprised and thrilled fans when she replied,
“If I could bring back any Grey’s character, it would be George O’Malley [played by T.R. Knight]. I love George so much and I miss George so much! He was such an awesome character and he was super funny, and adorable, and amazing. George!”
Fans wholeheartedly agree with all of Rhimes’ wishes!

Omg @shondarhimes I watched your Instagram Q&A & the look on your face when you said you're not a writer on greys anymore & not responsible for character deaths haha It was the look of pure relief haha. Also, I feel the same about George!! I miss him SOOOOO much #RIP007

But some fans didn’t hear their favorite characters’ names.
Shonda Rhimes revealed characters on Grey’s that she would like to bring back and Cristina Yang wasn’t one of them so I’m not okay. pic.twitter.com/zIkO2oilT3

It's been almost 10 years since George died, and I feel like the show has gone on long enough without him being there, and I love him very much but I would rather bring Derek back because he was a very big part of the show and losing him has taken a huge toll on the show

I’m still pissed at Shonda Rhimes for killing Derek

And some are ready to find a way to bring back George just for Shonda (and everyone else, too, who am I kidding).

So @shondarhimes said she wished she could bring O’Malley back..well Shonda, he was never *ACTUALLY* formally pronounced George..they went off of a mark on his hand..they never ran DNA test or anything..He technically CAN come back to #Greys ♀️#GreysAnatomy #Hypothetical
