CBS Television Studios & Amblin Television's "Extant" Premiere - ArrivalsA familiar face is returning to "Grey's Anatomy" this season, and she may have her eye on Arizona (Jessica Capshaw).

TVLine reports that Tessa Ferrer is set to make her way back to Seattle, reprising her role as Dr. Leah Murphy. Ferrer starred in seasons nine and 10 of the long-running medical drama, last appearing in the season 10 finale, when she was fired by Richard (James Pickens Jr.) for being an incompetent surgeon.

But fans probably best remember her for her romantic entanglements on the show, first hooking up with Karev (Justin Chambers), and then embarking on a brief, rocky relationship with Arizona, following Arizona's breakup with Callie (Sara Ramirez). Arizona eventually ended things with Leah, when she briefly tried to reconcile with Dr. Torres.

Ferrer's return could mark a new beginning for Leah and Arizona, though, with TVLine reporting that Dr. Robbins is due to get a new love interest this season. Capshaw told TVLine that fans could expect the romance to begin soon, and said the storyline is a welcome change after the drama of last season.

"We had to wade through a little muck first," the actress told the site. "But I do feel that Arizona has certainly waited long enough."

No word yet on when exactly Ferrer will be making her return, or how long she'll stick around this time. "Grey's" airs Thursdays on ABC.
