Kim Raver To Return To ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ For Season 14
Former Grey’s Anatomy regular Kim Raver will be returning to the ABC medical drama for its upcoming 14th season, according to Deadline.
Raver played Dr. Teddy Altman, the former head of Cardiothoracic surgery at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital, during season 6-8. Altman was also a mentor of Sandra Oh‘s character, Dr. Cristina Yang. Raver’s character was fired at the end of season 8 and as a result decided to take a job as a military doctor, where she began her career.
Raver’s return to Grey’s Anatomy, while confirmed, is a bit hazy on the details. Altman is said to have only a guest arc on the newest season, according to Deadline, but what that arc may be is still a secret. It also may mean that her return is short-lived.
Nonetheless, 2017 is shaping up to be a busy year for the actress as she recently signed on to have a recurring role on the fifth season of Showtime’s Ray Donavan. Like her post on Grey’s, Raver will play a witty, quick, and rigid surgeon named Dr. Bergstein.
Season 13 of Grey’s Anatomy ended with a shock – Dr. Owen Hunt’s (Kevin McKidd) sister comes to the hospital, even though Owen has thought she was dead for some time. Dr. Altman was mentioned in the season finale as well.
The wildly successful medical drama will return to ABC this fall. Despite being in its 14th season, it is the network’s highest rated drama and the number three drama on all of television.
