What a missed opportunity.
Season 15 is now filming, and creator Shonda Rhimes had an Ask Me Anything Instagram Story Q&A addressing several "Grey's" questions.
One fan asked if they planned to bring back Callie back anytime soon.
In her answer, Shonda whispered conspiratorially:
"Let me tell you something. This is between us. We tried. CBS has a hold of her. Because she’s on another show, and we can’t get her. But we love her. Always. This is her home. Come home Callie."
Sara Ramirez is now starring on CBS' "Madam Secretary," which she joined last year.
Although Shonda didn't mention when they tried to get Sara/Callie back, TVLine confirmed with sources that it was for the Season 14 finale. They wanted Callie back for Arizona's final episode. That would've been nice, to see Callie again, instead of just seeing her texts.
It's especially frustrating since Season 15 is giving us a new Ortho God, and that should always be Callie!
Shonda Rhimes also answered that if she could bring back any "Grey's" character it would be George. She also talked about wanting to bring back Addison, but "I can’t bring back people who don’t exist in terms of availability. Kate’s busy, people!"
There's some confusion about Meredith Grey finding love again in Season 15 or not. Shonda said she hopes Meredith finds love again someday, and maybe it'll be even better the second time around. But she said we'd have to ask Krista Vernoff. She's the showrunner now, and she recently addressed ABC boss Channing Dungey's quotes on Meredith Grey. Apparently Mer WILL have a new romance in The Season of Love.
But seriously. Follow Shonda on Instagram and watch the Story Q&A. It's good.
"Grey's Anatomy" Season 15 will have a two-hour premiere on Thursday, September 27 on ABC.
