In Grey’s Anatomy news, creator Shonda Rhimes tells TV Guide that for the first time, there are no plans to add additional members to the cast for season 7. “We’re full up” she said.
Over the last couple years, the show has added four regulars: Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), Teddy (Kim Raver), April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson (Jesse Williams). More from TV Guide:
Audiences will get to know Jackson and April much better once they move in with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) this season. Pompeo says Meredith and April, whose crush on Derek (Patrick Dempsey) proved nearly fatal, will bond this season — which may help audiences change their feelings toward April.
Shonda Rhimes: Grey’s Anatomy docs all grown up in new season
“Meredith will accept April in order to get the audience to accept her,” says Pompeo, who hopes Mer will be there to guide the new docs through their surgical residency.
“I feel like Meredith and Cristina [Sandra Oh] are much further along in their careers than April and Jackson,” she continues. “The audience hasn’t seen them go through as much training as they’ve seen us go through. I would love there to be a teaching element as opposed to them being our contemporaries.”
Grey’s Anatomy returns for its seventh season Thursday, Sept. 23 at 9/8c on ABC.
I don’t know about you – but the finale of season 6 was probably the best yet. It was soooo good! Two doctors were left dead, some were left in limbo. It was just so good! Can’t wait to see what happens next! I’m glad the show had turned around – I almost gave up here a couple seasons ago. Course I’m all talk, I’ll probably watch it until the bitter end whether it’s good or not.
