Sharing an image of Sunetra Sarker‘s Dr Zoe Hanna, Casualty captioned the post: “The secret is out! Dr Zoe Hanna returns to the E.D next year.”

Dr Zoe Hanna was last seen on the show in 2018 although this was only for a brief reappearance. Before this, she had been a key member of Holby’s E.D team from 2007-2016.


Her last appearance saw her return and sign her and Max’s divorce papers. However, Max realised that he still loved her and decided to fly with her to her work conference in Madrid.

She is currently thought to be working in America but not for much longer! She’ll be back where she belongs as of next year!
