At the 2015 Summer TCA Tour, Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes said Katherine will not be returning to the show.

“No. I’m done with that story. I’ve turned that idea over in my mind a thousand times and thought about how it would go. And I don’t think so,” she explained.

    and yet she’s had a steady stream of work since leaving the show. I think the tables have turned. Katherine doesn’t need Grey’s anymore but Grey’s could really use her right about now.
