Grey’s Anatomy is returning on ABC for its 11th season, on September 25. Not long ago, the network revealed the first stills from the series’ comeback episode, but the promo for the entire season was put out just now.
The promo is titled “Hold On To Your Hears” and deals mostly with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). She does not want to follow Derek (Patrick Dempsey) all the way to DC, but confesses that she doesn’t know if her marriage can survive that. Other characters such as April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson (Jesse Williams) make an appearance, but the clip is too short to reveal much.
If anything is evident in the glimpse-and-you-missed-it preview, it’s that this season will focus on Meredith. After all, both the series’ creator Shonda Rhimes, and the actress playing the character, Ellen Pompeo, have stated that it’s going to be a Mer-centric season. There is a lot going on with her after all; her best friend is gone, her one half-sister is dead and the other one just showed up, while her husband wants them to move to DC. Pompeo recently claimed that the latter can’t be done, because “Meredith would find out her mother is alive and she would be pissed”.
Anyway, are you excited for Grey’s Anatomy return? If the answer is yes, get a glimpse of its upcoming season below.
