Grey’s Anatomy returns for its 19th season in October and the returning regular cast has now been revealed. Per Deadline, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens, Jr., Kevin McKidd, Kim Raver, Camilla Luddington, Caterina Scorsone, Kelly McCreary, Chris Carmack, Jake Borelli, and Anthony Hill are returning in full-time roles.
Scott Speedman is being bumped down to recurring after being a series regular during season 18. The move makes sense since Ellen Pompeo will only appear in eight episodes of the upcoming season. She will continue to narrate episodes.
Harry Shum Jr., Adelaide Kane, Alexis Floyd, Niko Terho, and Midori Francis have been added to the cast for season 19 as the new group of surgical residents coming in to learn at Grey-Sloan. The series follows the staff at the fictional Seattle hospital.
Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC on October 6th.
What do you think? Are you excited about the return of this ABC medical drama this fall?
if you people have these comments, why watch or write about.. move on! We, in this household still like it. 🙂
Seems obvious now they’re aiming for 20 seasons, just because it’s a “nice round number” so they just have to limp their way through two more seasons and then call it a day. Obviously, there’s no “Grey’s Anatomy” without “Grey” so they have to keep Ellen Pompeo in the cast, even if she’s putting in the minimal amount of time… which has already been the case the last couple of years anyway… for Hell’s sake she did an entire season doing nothing but talking to dead people on Coma Beach!
Thats true, i guess going forward they might just have her dial in and do an occasional skype call or facetime – i mean, if she’s as committed to the character in the show as she is to her kids in the show, well, if she fails to appear on the skype sessions we won’t be too surprised either.
I have been watching since the beginning, I’m over it now .
Agree with others – its boring and tired and nothing remotely interesting happens…. trying to be all shocking with a lesgbian secret affair or bringing back dead ghost people over and over only works so many times. Shonda must be as bored as Ellen is because it just isn’t giving us what we need. There are now better shows doing much the same, but better and without Ellen annoyingly looking like she doesnt’ want to be there everytime her face in on a camera.
This show is boring and I don’t care to watch it anymore. It needs to be put out of its misery, it’s run its course!
Should have been Cancelled..no one cares
