Set To Return
Longtime "Grey's Anatomy" mainstays Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew, better known as Jackson Avery and April Kepner, will return to the series for the Season 18 finale. Showrunner and executive producer Krista Vernoff said of the guest appearances, "It's the 400th episode, so we wanted to go big. Sarah and Jesse were both available and game to play, which was thrilling."
For those who don't recall, the last time we saw Jackson and April, they Seatle to live in Boston, Massachusetts, and start their lives anew. Jesse Williams explained to The New York Times that he wanted to seek out more challenging roles after sticking around "Grey's Anatomy" for 12 years, prompting him to leave during Season 17.
Meanwhile, Drew departed the series during Season 14, only to return briefly for Williams' farewell season so Jackson and April could ride off into the sunset together with their daughter, Harriet. The season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" hits the airwaves on May 26, 2022, and finding out what Jackson and April have been up to since saying goodbye to Grey Sloan will undoubtedly be a highlight of the night.
