Grey’s Anatomy season 14 is set to premiere next month, and fans have been busy predicting what will happen when the series returns.
With fans already noticing that the cast of Grey’s Anatomy was filming new scenes for season 14 in the same clothes they donned in the season 13 finale, star Kelly McCreary has confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the ABC doctor drama will in fact pick up right where last season left off!
“There’s obviously some damage to the hospital,” Kelly McCreary told Entertainment Weekly about the new season, which will start right after the finale explosion. “But it is, in true Grey’s Anatomy style, a completely surmountable obstacle, because we are superhuman doctors. It serves more as a metaphor of the transformation that the show is going to go through tonally.”
While there might be some danger, and darkness left over from last season, McCreary, who plays Dr. Maggie Pierce on the show, hinted that come fall, things will be a bit lighter.
This isn’t the first we’re hearing about a lighter side of Grey’s Anatomy, however, because earlier this week Jessica Capshaw, who plays Dr. Arizona Robbins, teased a “righteously hysterical” series premiere.
We know what you’re thinking… if it’s picking up after the explosion it’s serious, not funny, but like both McCreary and Capshaw teased, the light-heartedness is coming.
“It’s very funny. It’s very irreverent, and funny and sort of on its side,” Capshaw said while talking with E! News about the new season.
Let’s be honest there is only so much sadness we can take, so we welcome the lighter side of Grey’s come season 14!
Grey’s Anatomy returns with a two-hour premiere to start season 14 on September 28, 2017 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
