Debbie Allen, one of the ABC drama's executive producers, has made it clear that a Ramirez return as her character, Dr. Callie Torres, is not currently in the works. The EP told TVLine that "there are no plans at the moment" to bring back the fan favorite orthopedic surgeon.
"We love her and we miss her, [but] there's been no discussion of it," Allen said.
We also miss Callie, so we're focusing on the possible silver lining here: Allen said "at the moment," which leaves the door open for the future. Ramirez herself did the same when she left the show, saying that she was taking "some time off." The actress even indicated that she and producers would "definitely continue our conversations, making it seem very possible that Callie could someday do another stint at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
If Callie does return at any point, many fans will be angling for her to rekindle her relationship with Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw). Her former co-worker and love is going to be back on the market in Season 14 after the departure of Dr. Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk). With that being the case, "Calzona" shippers have reason to hang onto at least some hope.
No, we won't see Ramirez when "Grey's Anatomy" Season 14 premieres on Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, but we will wait and see what the future holds.
