ABC, Shonda Bringing Denny Back to Life?

by at . Comments

We're not sure whether this is good or bad news for Grey's Anatomy fans, but regardless, you'll be able to see more Jeffrey Dean Morgan on ABC.

Coming Soon: More MorganMorgan, who was lauded by critics and fans for his portrayal of charismatic and ill-fated heart patient Denny Duquette, has signed on as a regular cast member on new ABC series from Shonda Rhimes, the creator and executive producer of Grey's Anatomy.

The Untitled Shonda Rhimes Project, as it is now known, revolves around a group of female journalists. According to Reuters, ABC has ordered a pilot episode.

While it comes as little surprise that Morgan's newfound fame landed him another ABC role, this news officially extinguishes flickering hopes of Grey's fans that Denny might return to Seattle Grace in some capacity. The handsome actor endeared himself to Dr. Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) for much of the series' second season.

In addition to his guest role on Grey's Anatomy, Morgan appeared on the WB Network series Supernatural as the ghost-busting father of stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. He was also recurring character on Weeds, the Showtime comedy starring Mary Louise Parker. Morgan played Parker's dead husband, who often appears in flashbacks and fantasy sequences.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
