Katherine Heigl Tells Producers She Wants To Return To 'Grey's Anatomy'

Two years after Katherine Heigl left 'Grey's Anatomy', the actress says she wants to be back on the ABC series.

Heigl, who won an Emmy in 2007 for her performance as Dr. Izzie Stevens, left the series in January 2010 to spend more time with her adopted daughter.

Although, coming off 'Knocked Up' and '27 Dresses', many ABC insiders believed she wanted to leave the show to pursue a career in films.

Her character was written off the show after she and Alex, played by Justin Chambers, divorced and she was fired from Seattle Grace.

"I've told them I want to," Katherine tells E! News. "I don't know. Being a showrunner and being a writer of a TV series like that is so complicated that I mean she's got how many characters are there now?"

"There's a lot and so she's balancing about 40 different storylines, so I don't know if it fits in to their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes."

"I really, really, really want to see where Izzie is. I just want to know what happened to her and where she went and what she's doing now. My idea is that she actually like figures it out, and finds some success and does really well in a different hospital."

"She was always floundering you know, and so she was always one step behind the eight ball and I want to see that girl take some power back."

The 33-year-old actress famously withdrew her name from the 2008 Emmy race because she "didn't feel I was given the material this season to warrant a nomination."

So don't count on producers jumping at the chance to have her back.
