It has been a looooooong wait for Grey’s Anatomy fans since they were last treated to an episode on Channel 7, but good news has come for those eagerly and patiently waiting the shows return…but it’s going to cost you some very late nights.
Channel 7 are offering up double episodes on Monday nights from 10pm – airing right after brand new episodes of Revenge.
Our last outing with the medial drama saw Bailey (Chandra Wilson) still suffering with her sudden onset on OCD while tensions between Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Christina (Sandra Oh) were starting to reach a dangerous boiling point as both doctors battle for new treatment research breakthroughs.
The return of Greys will see us only 12 (yes 12) episodes behind the USA who will have the massive series finale this week.
Grey’s Anatomy continues Monday night, 10pm on Channel 7
Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles who play Leah Murphy and Shane Ross will not be back for the upcoming 11th season of Greys Anatomy as their contracts as series regulars have not been renewed, although there’s no word if the two will continue to make guest appearances throughout the new season.
It’s still unclear as to how Murphy and Ross will be written out of the show but judging how the two characters story arcs have played out over the last season, failed relationships could be the reason why.
Seven years after being fried from the set of Grey’s Anatomy, Isaiah Washington is set to return to the medical drama in a guest stint that coincides with Sandra Oh’s departure from the show.
It made news worldwide, saw one star fired and another come out as gay, I am, of course talking about the altercation between Greys Anatomy stars Isaiah Washington and T.R Knight (and also [allegedly] involved Patrick Dempsey) in which a homophobic slur was used and subsequently saw Washington’s firing from the hit series.
Seven years on, all seems to be forgiven and Washington will be back as Dr.Preston Burke who was last seen in the series three finale, leaving Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) at the altar on their wedding day.
In a statement, show-runner Shonda Rhimes said “It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should. 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.”
Sandra will leave the show at the end of the 10th season in May.
ABC hasn’t announced a specific date for Washington’s return to Grey’s Anatomy but the episode is expected to air during the May sweeps period.
Grey’s Anatomy fans need not to worry. The medical drama and it’s two mains stars – Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) and Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd) are not going anywhere, well, not anytime soon. The two have just singed a new two year contact extensions with the show, even though Grey’s Anatomy has not officially been picked up by ABC past it’s 10th season.
The news of the contact extension however should indicate it will be back for an 11th season. This comes after the news that Sandra Oh (Christina Yang) announced her departure from the long running show, with her final scenes to be screened in America in May and shortly thereafter here in Australia.
So while fans should be happy that McDreamy and his wife are sticking around, the fate of other members at Grey-Sloane memorial remain to be known. Justin Chambers (Alex Karev), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), James Pickens Jr (Richard Webber) and Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres) are locked into contracts set to expire at the end of the current season. While Ramirez joined the show in series 2, she and the remaining three cast members are on the same renegotiation schedule, with show runner Shonda Rhimes yet to confirm their return to the medical soap.
Grey’s Anatomy airs on the Seven Network on Thursday nights.
It’s confirmed. Sandra Oh is leaving Grey’s Anatomy after the shows 10th season and is taking her character Christina Yang with her.
“I gave myself two years to emotionally let go” says Sandra Oh on her upcoming departure from Grey’s Anatomy and in an official statement, Oh said, “It’s been a great privilege to play the character of Cristina Yang on ‘GA’ and I am both sad and excited to see where this, her final season will take her. It was an emotional and deeply creative decision for me and I feel fully supported by Shonda and the writers. It’s so rare in an actor’s life to be able to explore and grow a character so fully, so completely. I am profoundly grateful to everyone at ‘GA’ for the opportunity. I’m excited to celebrate and cherish every moment of my final season on ‘GA’ with the fans who have made it all possible.”
Co-stars Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo are still in talks regarding their stay post season 10.
ABC plan to keep the beloved medical drama on air for many more years to come with the aim to maintain as many original characters as possible to keep the show going into the future.
The shows 10th season kicks into gear next year picking up from the season 9 finale which saw a super storm tear through Chicago, Meredith gave birth to a healthy baby and also saw Richard Weber (possibly) dead from an electric shock in the basement.,
