Grey's Anatomy fans want fan favorite Dr. Callie Torres to return to work at Grey Sloan Memorial but don't expect that to happen anytime soon. Series creator Shonda Rhimes answered questions from fans during an Instagram Q&A and of course, it didn't take long for fans to ask about the return of Sara Ramirez, who played Callie for 241 episodes on ABC.

“Let me tell you something, this is between us--- we tried,” Rhimes said. “CBS has a hold of her because she's on another show and we can't get her out. But we love her. Always. This is her home. Come home, Callie.”

Ramirez, who is currently playing Kat Sandoval on Madam Secretary since 2017, was considered to return to help bid farewell to Kate Capshaw during the season 14 finale of the medical drama.

Rhimes also confirmed they've already started shooting season 15 and that the cast has already had their first table read.

"The show just keeps on going, you guys are amazing," she said.

Adding, "'Grey's' is going to go on as long as Ellen [Pompeo] and I feel like it feels good and who knows how long that will be.

We'll decide when it's time [to end the show]."
