Good news for "Grey's Anatomy" viewers: Fan favorite Denny Duquette, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is returning to ABC's medical drama.
A rep for the show confirmed Morgan's guest appearance but declined to divulge further details.
Denny first appeared in the show's second season as Izzie's (Katherine Heigl) patient, who was in the hospital because of a heart condition. The pair became engaged, but Denny died at the end of the season. His character did return in the third season in a vision seen by a near-death Meredith (Ellen Pompeo).
"Grey's" has its fifth-season premiere Sept. 25. | THR

Denny Duquette back on Grey's Anatomy
Shark jump! The dead rises on television once again! THR is reporting that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is reprising his role as Denny Duquette on Grey's Anatomy. Everyone watching knows his character has died, so his return might have something to do with yet another dream sequence or a flashback, perhaps? Or he is probably there to fetch Izzie, if you know what I mean. Haha.
