Fans can’t help but hold on to hope that Sandra Oh may make an appearance back in her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy!

Especially with all the guest appearances from past stars this season, fans definitely had more reason than ever to believe Oh may return to the show temporarily, but it seems like this won’t be the case.

Oh recently shut down the possibility of reprising her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on Grey’s sharing on a recent podcast that she’s “moved on.”

“It’s very rare, I would say, to be able to see in such a way the impact of a character. In some ways, you do your work as a bubble and you let it go,” she said on the Los Angeles Times‘ podcast Asian Enough.

“I left that show, my God, seven years ago almost. So in my mind, it’s gone. But for a lot of people, it’s still very much alive. And while I understand and I love it, I have moved on.”

“I love it, though,” she added. “And this is also why I really appreciate the show … that I still get asked this.”

Oh played the role of Dr. Cristina Yang for the first ten seasons of the hit medical drama before announcing her departure in 2013. Her acting in the role earned her her first Golden Globe Award and five Emmy Award nominations. Since her departure, Oh has moved onto other projects, including the hit series Killing Eve.
