First Photo Of Isaiah Washington's Return To 'Grey's Anatomy'

Posted: Updated:

Nobody knows exactly what Isaiah Washington's return to "Grey's Anatomy" will look like, but Ellen Pompeo recently posted the first photo of her former co-star back on set.

She posted the photo below on Instagram and wrote, "BURKE IS BACK #itsallgoodinthehood #burkeisback."

ABC announced Washington would return to the show for a guest appearance in May, seven years after he was fired for making anti-gay remarks directed at former cast member T.R. Knight. Now, "Grey's" will begin to wrap up Cristina Yang's (Sandra Oh) storyline as Oh readies to exit the series and Washington will be back to reprise his role as her former fiancé, Dr. Preston Burke. After Washington read the script, he told "Access Hollywood," "The script is so amazing, it will blow you away."

Washington also tweeted a photo of himself in scrubs. Looks like Burke really is back.
