Meredith Grey’s dating life is in good hands. A matchmaker at Grey Sloan Memorial offered to help Meredith get back in the dating game on last week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and it looks like the advice is already paying off. Meredith is set to meet a new love interest on the next episode in the form of How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor.
The medical drama just confirmed that Radnor will appear as a potential romance for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). In a teaser trailer for the upcoming episode, the doctors notice that Meredith is not rocking her usual white coat and quickly conclude that she has a date scheduled.
“Oh my god, you have a date,” Maggie (Kelly McCreary) tells her in the clip.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Pompeo previously teased that Meredith will be looking for romance this season. On an earlier episode, the volunteer matchmaker told Meredith that she needed to buy new clothes for dates and offered to find her a man.
Meredith rocked her new clothes on her date with Radnor’s John and seemed to hit it off until he said he believed single moms were desperate…. not a great thing to say to a mom of three. Meredith walked away from her date, and it is not known if this is the last we will see of Radnor on TGIT.
The last time we saw Radnor was on NBC’s short-lived Rise.

Speaking of Meredith’s storyline, Pompeo recently worried fans with some controversial comments about her future on the show. The actress admitted that she has not extended her contract and that the show has “told the majority of the stories we can tell.”
The comments sparked concern about the future of the series, at least beyond Season 16, when Pompeo’s current contract is up. There’s no telling how long the show will continue, but creator Shonda Rhimes made it clear that the series will end once Pompeo hangs up her scrubs.
New episodes of Grey’s Anatomy air Thursday nights on ABC.
