The Season of Love

A season full of romance, steamy hookups, and new relationships? It sounds like the elevators at Grey Sloan Memorial are going to be busy, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Every year, new doctors and interns join the hospital, and we can't wait to see who shows up in season 15. After all, once upon a time Owen, Amelia, Maggie, and Jackson were all fresh faces. Now they're beloved members of the Grey's family. Who's going to make us fall hard for them next? So far we know at least two new characters are joining the show, and we can't wait to meet them. There's the "Ortho God" played by Chris Carmack, and Alex Landi will star as the show's first gay male surgeon, Dr. Nico Kim. These guys are already stirring up drama in the teasers, and let's be real, making us drool.

Teddy in Charge

As the new interim chief, Teddy's in charge while Bailey's pursuing her passions. Seeing how the surgeons respond to their new boss and what it means for Teddy is sure to be memorable.
