With the Grey’s Anatomy season 14 premiere just a few weeks away, we’re starting to get anxious about what’s ahead for our favorite doctors this time around — and with good reason.
While we can’t wait to see Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) back in action at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, a cryptic tease from the series’ creator, Shonda Rhimes, is making us a little nervous to dive back into the ABC show.
“Who’s ready for Season 14 of #GreysAnatomy? 9/28. Two hour season premiere,” Rhimes teased on social media last week, in her latest Grey’s post. “Prepare yourselves.”
While Rhimes didn’t give too much away with her latest Grey’s update, we do know that when the series does return this month that it will be with an explosive two-hour premiere — and we’re expecting at least a big chunk of that time to be dedicated to the impending fallout from season 13’s big cliffhanger. Since that news most likely isn’t making this wait any easier, we have a few more details about the show’s return to share with you.
In addition to Krista Vernoff returning to Grey’s for season 14 as showrunner, and writing the premiere episode, “Break Down the House,” Dr. Teddy Altman is back! Yes, Kim Raver, who played Teddy for three seasons is back in a full-time role and the cast is very excited to have her back in the OR — as are we.
Plus, in addition to all of the drama that is ingrained on Grey’s Anatomy, according to Jessica Capshaw (who plays Dr. Arizona Robbins) the premiere will be full of laughs.
“It’s very funny. It’s very irreverent, and funny and sort of on its side,” Capshaw previously told E! News.
Okay, so at least we’ll have some light-hearted moments to balance out all the drama!
What do you hope to see in the season premiere? Are you ready for Grey’s to return?
Grey’s Anatomy returns for season 14 with a two-hour premiere on September 28, 2017 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
