Grey’s Anatomy fans, if you’ve been dying to see Izzie Stevens and Alex Karev together again… well, Monday’s Primetime Emmy Awards gave you the next best thing: Katherine Heigl and Justin Chambers were among a special group of Grey’s vets who reunited on stage during the 75th annual ceremony.
The duo was joined by Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) and Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey) to jointly announce one of the night’s big winners. Heigl even managed to squeeze in a line about the, ahem, many casting changes that the show has undergone over the years.

And Grey’s wasn’t the only iconic show that reunited to salute the Emmys’ major milestone. Additional reunions included Lorraine Bracco and Michael Imperioli from The Sopranos; Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Carl Anthony Payne II and Tichina Arnold from Martin; Calista Flockhart and Greg Germann, Peter MacNicol and Gil Bellows from Ally McBeal; Tina Fey and Amy Poehler from Saturday Night Live; Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott from American Horror Story: Murder House; and Ted Danson, Kelsey Grammer, Rhea Perlman, John Ratzenberger and George Wendt from Cheers.
This year’s Emmys even featured a special tribute to the legacy of I Love Lucy, with a full recreation of the famous conveyer belt scene. As for which actresses stepped into the roles of Lucille Ball’s Lucy and Vivian Vance’s Ethel, that would be… Natasha Lyonne and Tracee Ellis Ross.
