Kate Walsh shared the thrilling news herself in a video posted on the Grey’s Anatomy Twitter Page with a caption, “I need the day off. For THIS. NEWS!!! @katewalsh” with an exploding head, a star-struck, and loudly crying face emojis.
“Well, well, well, would you look who it is. That’s right, my loves, Dr. Addison Montgomery is coming back to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital and I’m so excited to be home again joining Shonda, Ellen, and the rest of the incredible cast,” the entertainer said.
“This season 18, whew! — Just wait until you see what she has in store for you. The new season premieres September 30 on ABC,” she added.
She ended the video by saying, “So stay tuned here on Grey’s ABC and make sure you’re following me, @katewalsh for more updates and make her grand return. I’ll see you there.”
Addison is an a-list gynecological and neonatal specialist and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey’s) repelled spouse. She remained on for a few seasons prior to driving the side project series Private Practice, which circulated from 2007 to 2013.
During her meeting with PEOPLE, the actress uncovered how she couldn’t imagine anything, better than to have one more freedom to walk the lobbies of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital once more.
“If they could get it done, I’d be happy to come back. It definitely changed my life.”
