The fifteenth season of Grey’s Anatomy is finally upon us—and judging by the new trailer, the long-running ABC drama still has some tricks up its sleeve.
First, we’re introduced to the new docs on the block, including Nashville‘s Chris Carmack, who likes to be called “Ortho God.” We also meet Alex Landi, who will play the show’s first openly gay male surgeon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Once the trailer gets the rookie introductions out of the way, it launches into some of the major twists this season has in store for audiences. We see Teddy (Kim Raver) revealing her pregnancy to Maggie (Kelly McCreary). At one point, gunshots can be heard being fired in the Grey-Sloan Memorial O.R. But the shot that will likely give fans the biggest shock features Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) hooking up with none other than Dr. Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). While the jarring image might end up being a dream sequence, it still leaves us wondering what’s in store for Meredith’s love life this season.
Thankfully, showrunner Krista Vernoff recently sat down with TVLine and shed some light on what she’s dubbing the “Season of Love.” “Yes, [Mer]’s a single mom, and that complicates a dating life,” Vernoff said. “And yes, she’s a surgical marvel with new, game-changing medical ideas she’ll be pursuing. But she also hasn’t dated at all since [Martin Henderson’s] Nathan Riggs left [in season 14]. And the one-two punch of meeting [Scott Speedman’s] Nick Marsh awoke a desire in her that she can’t put back to sleep.”
So that’s something. Vernoff added, “The question this season is not ‘Will Meredith Grey find love again?’ but ‘With whom will she find love?'” We’ll find out, when season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy premieres on Thursday, September 27, at 8:00 P.M.
