So does executive producer David Shore said TVLine that “we would like to find places to bring them back. She is such a part of this world and will always be a part of this world, so it will be nice to see her [Claire] – so she can tell us a story or just get to the highlights of people’s lives.”

In the season 4 finale, Claire accepted a position at the rural hospital in Guatemala, where the St. Bonaventure team had just completed a life-changing mission. After being deviated from Shaun et al. had said goodbye, came Dr. Browne on her first procedure as chief surgeon. You can watch Thomas’ earlier departure from the cast and crew below:
