The stars of Grey’s Anatomy have been teasing the upcoming season since the beginning of August, and now the production team behind the amazing medical drama is jumping in on the fun by giving fans a first look at what’s coming up.
While the cast members who make up everyone’s favorite TV doctors (including Ellen Pompeo, Jesse Williams, Sarah Drew, and more) have been reuniting and sharing on-set pictures for weeks, Shondaland TV (aka Shonda Rhimes’ production company) has been keeping the new season under wraps…until now!
“Who’s excited for the 14th season of #GreysAnatomy? #shondaland,” the production company wrote on Instagram on Wednesday (Aug. 16), along with a behind-the-scenes first look at scene from the new season.
Besides confirming that filming for season 14 is well underway, the photo gives fans a glimpse at a scene from the upcoming two-hour premiere episode — while offering just enough clues to keep fans guessing about what’s really going on in the scene in question.
In the photo, we can see that there are three people lined up at the hospital (one of whom appears to be Meredith Grey?). Are 0ur favorite docs presenting a united front? Or are we actually looking at a new batch of interns? More importantly, why isn’t anyone wearing a lab coat? The photo purposefully keeps things vague.
According to the slate seen in the pic, episode will be directed by Debbie Allen (who has acted on the series since 2011). The premiere will mark the 15th episode she’s directed for the series to date.
As previously reported, Grey’s alum, Krista Vernoff, who is returning to the series as its showrunner, wrote the season 14 premiere episode, so clearly there is a LOT of star power both in front of the camera and behind it for this kickoff episode.
Grey’s Anatomy returns with a two-hour premiere for its 14th season on September 28, 2017 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
