This just in: Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew are returning to Grey’s Anatomy.
According to Deadline, the duo will reprise their roles as Jackson Avery and April Kepner (AKA “Japril”) on the season 18 finale of Grey’s Anatomy, which will air on May 26.
The last time they appeared on the show was last season, when Jackson said farewell to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. (Although Drew left before Williams, she returned as a guest star for his last episode.)
At the time, Jackson left Grey’s Anatomy to work at his family’s foundation in Boston. April followed Jackson to the east coast, so she could be close to their daughter, Harriet. Although ABC hasn’t shared any details about their upcoming appearance, many fans want the characters to rekindle their relationship.
