Season 14 brought a lot of changes for the cast and crew of Grey’s Anatomy. Although there were plenty of moments to be happy about, watching Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and April (Sarah Drew) say their final goodbyes wasn’t easy. With the return of Grey’s Anatomy only a few months away, here’s everything we know about Season 15.
Losing a couple important characters was difficult, but the upcoming season will bring a few old characters back into the fold. This includes Kim Raver, who is returning to the series as a full-time cast member to reprise her role as Dr. Teddy Altman.
As fans will recall, Teddy had some interesting interactions with Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) early in the show. Fast forward a good decade and Teddy is now pregnant, though fans will have to wait to learn the identity of the father.

While there have been rumors of Grey’s Anatomy ending soon, we know that there will be at least two more seasons. According to Women, Ellen Pompeo’s contract extends through Season 16, which means Meredith isn’t going away anytime soon. In fact, Pompeo and Shonda Rhimes have reportedly agreed to do the show until one of them decides to bow out.
Speaking of characters, fans can expect to see an uptick in crossovers this season. Ben Warren (Jason George) left Grey Sloan Memorial to fight fires on the hit series Station 19, and ABC has promised the two shows will have some crossovers this year. Station 19 creator Stacey McKee recently confirmed the crossover rumors and promised fans that the two shows will interact in the near future.

When it comes to romances next season, fans were holding out hope that Nick Marsh (Scott Speedman) and Meredith would eventually hook up. In Season 14, Meredith helped Nick run tests on himself after he underwent a kidney transplant. Pompeo then teased that a romance between the characters might be on the horizon, but Speedman recently shot down the notion of a potential hookup.
“Yeah I don’t know,” Speedman shared when asked about his characters on Grey’s Anatomy and Animal Kingdom. “Probably, to be honest with you, neither [will be back]… I don’t know, Probably not. Sorry.”
At least fans always have Jo and Alex’s romance to look forward to.
ABC has not announced an official premiere date for Season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy. The season is expected to premiere sometime this fall.
