Second time around: TV stars who reprised iconic roles

You can’t go home again — unless you’re a television star.

ABC announced a big shocker Thursday: Isaiah Washington, who played heart surgeon Dr. Preston Burke on three seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, will soon reprise the role he left in 2007. Washington exited the show after his contract was not renewed, following accusations that he had used a homophobic slur in reference to his then co-star T.R. Knight. He is set to return in a May episode, which will coincide with Sandra Oh’s departure from the medical drama. (Washington played Oh’s love interest on the show; their story ended with Burke leaving Oh’s Cristina Yang on their wedding day.)

Washington is just one of several actors who have reprised a well-known role. Here’s a roundup of some of TV’s most notable returns:

'The Cosby Show': It's the right time for an appreciation

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 20 years since The Cosby Show went off the air. The classic family comedy remains just that: a family comedy. Forget the racial and cultural impact that this picture of an upper middle class African American family had in the mid- to late ’80s. It has stood the test of time and remains something that even my kids can watch and enjoy.

Everyone has opinions on how the show evolved as the five Huxtable children grew up, got spouses and kids of their own. But at the heart of it, we’d all already fallen in love with Cliff and Claire’s brood. Regardless of race, many of us wanted to be one of them — to have warm, caring folks, or just live in that cool brownstone, and join in all that fun. READ FULL STORY
