Now that most of the Fab Five have left Grey Sloan Memorial, it seems the time could be ripe for Meredith to finally move on from the hospital she’s called home for the last 10 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy—despite telling Derek she didn’t want to move to Washington, D.C. in the season finale. However, Ellen Pompeo thinks there’s a very plausible reason why Meredith cannot follow her husband to Capitol Hill.

Could Mer and Der be on the road to a huge breakup?
When we left the couple in the last Grey’s Anatomy finale, Meredith finally stood up for herself, telling Derek that she doesn’t want to move to Washington, D.C.—where he had been offered a full-time position by POTUS. (Not Scandal’s Fitz, but we can still dream!)
And in season 11—being dubbed “The Year of Meredith”—the stalwart doc will no longer take a backseat to her husband’s career, which may cause strife in their relationship. However, executive producer Shonda Rhimes promises that this doesn’t mean the end of everyone’s favorite McCouple.
Geena Davis is checking into Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
The Academy Award winner has signed on for a “major guest arc” in season 11 of Grey’s Anatomy, ABC confirms. She will play a surgeon at the hospital.
Season 11 premieres Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Grey’s Anatomy fans had a love-hate (but mostly hate) relationship with Meredith’s mother, Ellis Grey. On the one hand, we had her to thank for the fact that Meredith was dark and twisty in the first place, not to mention the great drama that came along with her Alzheimer’s, generally crappy parenting, and, of course, her love affair with Richard. But in season three, both fans and Meredith let go of Ellis for good when she died, met up with Meredith in the afterlife, and finally approved of her daughter. So you can imagine our surprise when we found out that we’ll be seeing Ellis again fairly soon.
EW has confirmed that Kate Burton will reprise her role as Ellis Grey in the upcoming season 11 premiere of Grey’s. According to TV Guide, Ellis will appear in flashbacks. And based on the fact that the season 10 finale introduced a new head of cardio who also just happened to be Richard and Ellis’ long-lost love child, it’s possible the flashbacks will have something to do with new doc Margaret Pierce (played by Kelly McCreary).
Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Starting September 25, Shonda Rhimes fans are going to get three straight hours of OMG moments… every week. On the ABC line-up, Thursdays this fall will consist of Grey’s Anatomy at 8 p.m., Scandal at 9 p.m., and How to Get Away With Murder at 10 p.m. And to preview the big night, the women of ShondaLand created a promo to tease their upcoming seasons.
In the video, Rhimes is joined by stars Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington, and Viola Davis, who divulge a total of zero spoilers while talking about their strong female characters—though they do give Davis, their newest addition, a bit of advice: “Buckle up!”
Leading up to the June 20 deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots,is featuring interviews with some of the people whose names we hope to hear when nods are announced on July 10.
Separately, Sandra Oh and Isaiah Washington are powerful — but together, they’re undeniable. And when you add in words from the writers of Grey’s Anatomy, you’re just about guaranteed an unforgettable moment. In what we named one of the year’s 50 Best TV Scenes — find the whole list in the Entertainment Weekly issue on stands now — Preston Burke and Cristina Yang finally talked about the moment that shaped both of their lives: the day he left her at the altar. Their chat was seven years in the making, as Cristina finally got some closure from the man who had broken her seemingly unbreakable heart. READ FULL STORY
Farewell, Cristina: Sandra Oh and 'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes say goodbye to a beloved character
She’s an ambitious woman, to say the least. A straight-talker whose tough spirit has carried her to the top of a field that requires a most delicate touch. A woman who mends hearts for a living and, ironically, has had to work the hardest to fix her own. And, all the while, she’s one half of a friendship so pure and honest that it has brought us to tears (several, several times).
Above all, Cristina Yang, the doctor portrayed fearlessly by Sandra Oh for 10 years on Grey’s Anatomy, is a survivor — and not just because she managed to be one of few people to survive the show’s numerous disasters. So when Cristina’s former mentor and love, Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington), offered her the position of a lifetime two weeks ago, we couldn’t fault her for jumping at the chance to lead a top-of-the-line research facility. As Burke said, she’d earned the opportunity. And as Cristina prepares to hop on a plane and leave Grey Sloan Memorial for good, EW spoke with Oh and show creator Shonda Rhimes about the journey that’s led to the bittersweet departure of a fond friend, doctor and dancing buddy.

Four Grey’s Anatomy faves have inked new contracts that would ensure their return to the series through season 12, EW confirms.
Sara Ramirez, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr.’s new two-year deals come as series regular Sandra Oh prepares to exit the medical drama at the end of the current season. Official word of the show’s 11th season renewal is expected in the coming weeks. READ FULL STORY
The day that Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) packed up his lucky scrub cap, his trumpet, and that picture of his grandmother that sat beside the bed he shared with his then-wife-to-be Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), is frozen in time for Grey’s Anatomy fans. The image of Cristina being cut out of her wedding dress by her best friend as she hyperventilated still — even seven years later — stirs feelings of rage and anger and sadness on behalf of the character whose heart was broken so brutally. So as fans await Burke’s return to the long-running medical drama — his first in-person appearance since the actor’s headline-grabbing exit in 2007 — creator Shonda Rhimes understands the anxiety. “I’ve had some people say, ‘I want them to get back together,’ I’ve had some people say, ‘They can’t possibly get back together,’ and I always tell people they need to remember that we’re talking about Cristina Yang here,” she says. “It’s not gonna be about whatever you expect it to be about.”
For Oh, whose impending exit from the show will start to come together on-screen in a major way during tonight’s episode, the weight of her character’s time apart from Burke — and her time apart from her one-time acting partner, for that matter — was something that charged their scenes together. “It was very energized — as it would be with the person you were about to marry. ‘I used to look into your face all the time — and now where I am looking into your face!'” she says, speaking to EW for a profile that appears in the issue on stands tomorrow. “There was a lot of things to play. And I hope it translates well.” READ FULL STORY
It looks like Sandra Oh is not alone in saying goodbye to Grey’s Anatomy after season 10.
EW has confirmed that current series regulars Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles, who play residents Leah Murphy and Shane Ross, will not have their contracts picked up for next season. It’s unclear how their characters will leave the show, but let’s just hope they get out of Seattle in one piece, which is more than we can say for quite a few members of the last batch of interns.
Ferrer and Charles joined Grey’s Anatomy as interns last season, along with Camilla Luddington and Jerikka Hinton, before all four were made series regulars. Now, Ferrer’s Leah and Charles’ Shane are residents best known for their romantic entanglements and, most recently, Leah’s decision to file a complaint against the hospital that resulted in a non-fraternization policy.
It’s not yet known if Ferrer and Charles could return for guest appearances in the future, according to Deadline, who first reported the news.
ABC announced its spring finale dates for 19 of its current series. Of note is the season 3 finale date for Scandal — Thursday, April 17 — a special two-hour Once Upon a Time season finale, and an extended, one-hour season finale for The Middle.
Check out the full list of dates below: READ FULL STORY
Season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy is quickly filling up with familiar faces. First, there was the news that Isaiah Washington will return as Dr. Burke, and now, EW has confirmed that Caterina Scorsone will once again set foot in Seattle.
Scorsone plays Amelia, Derek’s youngest sister and a fellow neurosurgeon, who many fans might recognize from the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. Scorsone appeared briefly on Grey’s but was a regular on Practice, where her character’s main story dealt with drug addiction. After Amelia’s fiance died of an overdose, she got clean in enough time to give birth to a child that had only half a brain.
By the end of Practice‘s run, Amelia was clean and happily involved with fellow doctor James. As for her return to Grey’s, we only know that she will first appear sometime in May and will then recur for the rest of season 10. TV Guide first broke the news of her casting.
Dr. Burke is checking back in to Grey’s Anatomy.
EW has learned that Isaiah Washington is set to reprise his role as the heart surgeon/former flame of Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) in an episode airing in May. This marks Washington’s first appearance on the ABC medical drama since season 3, when his character left Cristina at the altar and the actor was let go from the series.
Creator Shonda Rhimes said in a statement that the character’s return is an integral part of providing closure to Cristina Yang, whose portrayer Oh is set to leave the series at the end of this season. “It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should,” Rhimes said. “Burke is vital to that journey — he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang.”
Since leaving Grey’s Anatomy, Washington has appeared in bit parts on TV shows like Single Ladies and Law & Order: LA and will next appear in the CW’s 100, premiering this month.
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
