T.R. Knight is going home to Shondaland, but it’s not Grey’s Anatomy. He will be joining the cast of The Catch as a reoccurring character.
Knight portrayed the beloved George for the first 5 seasons of Grey’s. He unexpectedly exited after his character was hit by a bus. His exit was surrounded with controversy and quickly followed by his on-screen and off-screen friend Katherine Heigl.
Now it is all in the past as Knight heads to Shonda Rhimes’ newest show, The Catch. There isn’t that much news on the character he will play, but one of the show’s executive producers said the character was written and created just for him.
In a statement, Knight said he is filled with joy to be working with Shonda again. “Working with Shonda, Betsy and Allan again fills me with immense joy. I am heartened to be returning to Shondaland and excited to work with this exceptional cast!”
Now that Knight is back at Shondaland, a What-If episode featuring the old cast of Grey’s may not be far fetched. One can only hope.
Congratulations on the new role T.R. Knight!
