Grey’s anatomy has been tackling the coronavirus during the early part of season 17, and while the pandemic has inspired intense storytelling that reflects the real state of the world, the medical drama also had time to give fans exciting moments like the return of Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd.
The character, who died in season 11 after a fatal car accident, appeared in the dreams of Meredith Gray (Ellen Pompeo), while fighting COVID-19.

It wasn’t just a cameo
According to Variety, showrunner Krista Vernoff said Derek Shepherd will continue to be a part of Grey’s Anatomy season 17. “They will see ‘McDreamy’ again in the second half due to arrive in March. They should wait a little longer, “he said.
Although the screenwriter has not given further details of Dempsey’s participation, she did respond about the re-entry of more actors and actresses who were part of fiction years ago. “We all hope to see them again, but we still have nothing new to report on that issue at this time,” added Vernoff.
