Grey’s Anatomy fans were heartsick when Sandra Oh’s Cristina Yang exited Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for the last time in the season 10 finale. Oh — who received several Emmy nominations for her work on the ABC medical drama — has firmly re-established herself in episodic television, of course, by starring in BBC America’s acclaimed spy thriller Killing Eve as industrious MI6 intelligence officer Eve Polastri. For her work in season 1 alone, she scored an Emmy nomination as well as trophies at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards. While Oh has moved on quite successfully, what is the No. 1 question she still hears from Grey’s fans, more than four years after her last appearance on the show?
It’s actually four simple words: “When are you coming back?”
And now for a bit of bad news for those yearning for a return: “I’m not coming back,” Oh tells EW during an interview with Jodie Comer, who plays the intriguing assassin whom Eve is tracking. “So much love and gratitude for that time, but…” — and here she leans into Comer — “I have a new love in my life now. And I want to hang out with her.”
“I’m actually the only person on the planet to have not seen Grey’s Anatomy,” confesses Comer. “And in a way, I’m kind of glad that I hadn’t before I met you.” Why was that the case? Check out the video above to learn more.
Comer and Oh discussed Eve and Villanelle’s entrancing relationship and concocted the perfect ending to this twisted tale in EW’s cover story, which you can read about here.
Killing Eve returns for season 2 on April 7 — AMC will simulcast the episodes, too — and you can glean intel on the action to come in these first-look photos.
