Grey’s Anatomy season 19: Trailer
“Grey’s Anatomy” is in for big changes with season 19, as the trailer for the new episodes proves. Five young doctors have to face the challenges of their new work as doctors.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 19: Storyline
The dramatic finale of season 18 has left Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital in shambles: the residency program has been terminated, Teddy and Owen are on the run, and Richard and Bailey have also thrown in the towel. And Meredith, too, is actually drawn away from her old familiar workplace and home.
Her last plan was to move to Minnesota with her children and new love Nick and accept a job offer in Ohio. But now she has to find a solution to the disastrous situation as quickly as possible.
In season 19, Meredith will have to try to solve the residency program as well as the doctor shortage problem at Grey Sloan. And her relationship with Richard and Bailey also needs some clarification and debate at this point. Will Meredith be able to work through the conflicted relationships with her colleagues?
Grey’s Anatomy Season 19: Cast and Production
“I couldn’t be more excited that we get to continue telling the stories of Meredith, Bailey, Richard and all the other doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial for another season,” said series creator Shonda Rhimes (“Bridgerton,” “Scandal”), according to U.S. magazine Entertainment Weekly.
However, “Grey’s Anatomy” season 19 will still be different than expected! As the U.S. magazine Entertainment Weekly reports, Pompeo’s character Meredith will be seen in only eight of the expected 20 episodes. The reason for this is Pompeo’s involvement in an upcoming true-crime Hulu series. Even though the actress is now slowly moving in other directions, she still wants to be involved behind the scenes as an executive producer.
Likewise, the other two original cast members Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey) and James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) will return for the sequel, as the actors had already signed a multi-year deal at the end of season 17, which also includes another 19th season.
However, we have to say goodbye to actor Richard Flood in his role as Dr. Cormac Hayes. This is because he handed in his notice in season 18. Kelly McCreary alias Dr. Maggie Pierce, on the other hand, will be leaving the series in the course of season 19.
However, we don’t have to be too sad, because we can also look forward to new faces again. US magazine Deadline has now confirmed that “Inventing Anna” actress Alexis Floyd has landed a role in the successful Shondaland drama. Floyd will play resident Simone Griffin, who comes to Grey Sloan for her first year.
Likewise, it has now been confirmed that three more actors will join the cast of season 19. First, we will get to see actress Adelaide Kane (“Reign”) as new resident Jules Millin. Millin was raised by drug-addicted hippie parents and therefore had to grow up very quickly. Now she wants to prove herself in the new training program at Grey Sloan.
On the other hand, newcomers Midori Francis and Niko Terho will also each start as new residents in their first year of training. Francis will portray the self-confident Mika Yasuda, who comes from a large family and has to deal with a mountain of debt. Niko Terho, on the other hand, will play the charming Lucas Adam, who is the black sheep of his surgeon family.
And since the “Grey’s Anatomy” producers are apparently in a casting frenzy right now, actor Harry Shum Jr. has now also been confirmed as a new series member. The former “Glee” actor will also take on the role of a new resident. Daniel “Blue” Kwan is described as brilliant and competitive. However, a family crisis thwarted his actual career plans, which is why he is now stubbornly trying to prove himself in the program at “Grey Sloan.”
