Walsh first appeared on Grey’s in the Season 1 finale as Derek Shepherd’s estranged wife in one of the show’s most famous, jaw-dropping scenes. Initially set as a recurring, Walsh’s role was expanded to a series regular. During Season 3, Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes created a spinoff built around Walsh’s character, Private Practice, which saw Addison move to Los Angeles to start a new chapter. Walsh left Grey’s at the end of that season to headline the offshoot series, which ran for six seasons.

While on Private Practice, Walsh returned to Grey’s for several guest-starring stints, most recently in Season 8’s “If/Then” episode. She has appeared in a total of 59 episodes on Grey’s.

The “If/Then” episode, which aired in Feb. 2012, also featured Kate Burton who also is making a return to Grey’s in the upcoming season for multiple episodes.

They follow the surprise comebacks last season of former Grey’s stars Patrick Dempsey, T.R Knight, Chyler Leigh and Eric Dane. Walsh’s return mirrors that of other popular main cast member, Kim Raver, who also returned to the medical drama as a recurring after being away for several seasons. She is now again a series regular.

Walsh’s other television credits include the role of The Handler in the first two seasons of Netflix’s praised The Umbrella Academy, based on the comic book series of the same name. She most recently recurred on Netflix’s Emily in Paris. Her film credits include Honest Thief, opposite Liam Neeson, a starring role in indie drama, Sometime Other Than Now and she can also be seen in the sci-fi flick, 3022, streaming on Amazon.

Grey’s Anatomy‘s season 18 premiere is set for Thursday, September 30 at 9/8c on ABC.

Walsh confirmed her return Thursday on Instagram, saying “I’m so excited to be home again.” Watch her video below.

Grey's Anatomy - Addison is returning for season 18

digitalspy.com 03 September, 2021 - 08:01am

"I'm so excited to be home again."

Grey's Anatomy has confirmed Kate Walsh is returning as Dr Addison Forbes Montgomery for season 18.

After TVLine reported that Addison will be appearing in "multiple episodes" this coming season, Kate shared a message on the show's official Instagram account to tease her comeback.

"Dr Addison Montgomery is coming back to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, and I'm so excited to be home again joining Shonda [Rhimes], Ellen [Pompeo], and the rest of the incredible cast," she said.

"Season 18. Just wait until you see what she has in store for you."

The star also celebrated the announcement by posting a fun video on her own Instagram, where she says she frequently gets asked if she would ever return to the show.

Addison memorably made her first appearance at the end of the very first season, arriving at the hospital to reveal she is Dr Derek Shepherd's estranged wife.

Kate was part of the main cast in seasons 2 and 3 before leaving to star in her own spin-off called Private Practice, which lasted six seasons. Addison's last appearance in Grey's Anatomy was back in 2012, while Private Practice ended in 2013.

The star has more recently appeared in The Umbrella Academy and 13 Reasons Why.

Addison is not the only character making a surprise return for the new season.

Last month, it was revealed that Kate Burton is reprising her role as Meredith's late mother Dr Ellis Grey for "multiple episodes".

The OC's Peter Gallagher has also been cast in the recurring role of Dr Alan Hamilton, who knew Ellis.
