Unfortunately for George, Izzie doesn’t have any plans to get off that elevator to join him in the light. Despite an active career on the big screen, Katherine Heigl will remain on the ABC show for now. Heigl, who at one point seemed seemed dissatisfied with the drama, recently expressed an interest in staying on.
