Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 premiere will be two hours long rather than the typical one-hour time slot.
Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew won’t be back as Arizona Robbins and April Kepner, respectively, a decision that resulted in a whole lot of backlash against Pompeo.
Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Gray), Justin Chambers (Alex Karev), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), James Pickens Jr (Richard Webber), Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt), Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery), Caterina Scorsone (Amelia Shepherd), Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson), Kelly McCreary (Maggie Pierce) and Giacomo Gianniotti (Andrew DeLuca) will all be back.
Camilla Luddington in a recent interview revealed that there won’t be a huge time jump at the start of season 15. That means we’ll be picking up shortly after the events of the season 14 finale: Alex and Jo’s wedding that was officiated by Meredith and Teddy’s arrival back in Seattle.
Some of the biggest episodes in Grey’s history have been two-hour events and season 15 premiere is no different. There are plenty of cliffhangers that we need answers about — are Alex and Jo really leaving Seattle?! — but the biggest is perhaps what might happen between Amelia, Owen, and Teddy. After all, Amelia and Owen are living together, raising two kids together, and potentially falling in love again. And Teddy is pregnant with Owen’s baby!
