Sorry, Guys: Scott Speedman Probably Won't Return to Grey's Anatomy

The actor broke the sad news this week

It looks like Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) will have to wait a little longer to find her next McBoyfriend on Grey's Anatomy. It doesn't sound as though Scott Speedman will return to the ABC drama for Season 15.

Speedman was attending the Felicity reunion panel at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, on Sunday when a fan asked if the next time we saw him on TV, it'd be as a doctor or someone in need of a doctor, referring to his roles on Grey's Anatomy and Animal Kingdom. Speedman broke many Grey's fans' hearts when he told the fan that neither option is likely.

"Yeah, I don't know," Speedman laughed. "Probably, to be honest with you, neither. You're going to have to wait a couple years. I'll find something to do."

"I'm not going back to Animal Kingdom," added Speedman, referring to the recent death of his character Baz. "And then Grey's Anatomy: I don't know. Probably not. Sorry."

Speedman appeared in one episode of Grey's last season as transplant surgeon Nick Marsh who had instant chemistry with Meredith. The sparks between the pair inspired a passionate fan outcry for Speedman to return to the Shondaland series, with many clamoring for him to be a full-time cast member in Season 15. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like his return is in the cards right now, but maybe he'll make his way back to Grey Sloan Memorial eventually. Crazier things have happened on that show.
