Season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy will introduce some new and exciting characters to the series. This includes the show’s first openly gay doctor in Dr. Niko Kim (Alex Landi), which is a significant move for a series heading into its 15th season. And considering how Dr. Kim was featured in the season teaser, it looks like he is going to get thrown into the mix pretty early.
The cast has already called the upcoming season the “season of love,” but we still do not know where Dr. Kim will fit in with the other romantic storylines.

Fortunately, a few stars of the show dished on Dr. Kim’s journey this season and revealed that his story features a “supersweet” romance fans are sure to love.
According to Pop Sugar, James Pickens Jr. revealed that an intern falls pretty hard for the hospital’s newest surgeon. Giacomo Gianniotti echoed Pickens’ comments and added that Dr. Kim and his romantic interest are locked in a “power dynamic” given his status as a surgeon and his boyfriend’s job as an intern.
But it was Kim Raver’s comments that really gave us a good idea what to expect next season.
“It’s just supersweet, and sexy, and amazing, and funny, and awkward,” Raver, who is reprising her role as Teddy Altman, explained.

Caterina Scorsone also chimed in on the show’s newest couple. Scorsone, who plays the part of Amelia, confessed that Dr. Kim’s romance is her favorite storyline in Season 15. The actress called the relationship adorable and shared that she can’t wait to watch it unfold this season.
We may not have a lot of details on what the romance will be about, but it sounds like fans are in for a treat when Grey’s Anatomy returns this week.
