Jeffrey Dean Morgan returning to 'Grey's'

Will reprise Denny Duquette character

Good news for "Grey's Anatomy" viewers: Fan favorite Denny Duquette, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is returning to ABC's medical drama.

A rep for the show confirmed Morgan's guest appearance but declined to divulge further details.

Denny first appeared in the show's second season as Izzie's (Katherine Heigl) patient, who was in the hospital because of a heart condition. The pair became engaged, but Denny died at the end of the season. His character did return in the third season in a vision seen by a near-death Meredith (Ellen Pompeo).

"Grey's" has its fifth-season premiere Sept. 25.

Morgan is repped by WMA and manager Rob Gomez.
