Good news, Grey’s Anatomy fans — it looks like all of your favorite doctors are here to stay!
Deadline reports that actors Justin Chambers (Dr. Alex Karev), Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey), James Pickens, Jr (Dr. Richard Webber). and Kevin McKidd (Dr. Owen Hunt) have all signed on to return for the upcoming 13th season of Grey’s Anatomy. News of Chambers, Wilson, Pickens, and McKidd renewing their contracts comes hot on the heels of Ellen Pompeo, who portrays Meredith Grey, announcing that she would also be returning for season 13.
We’re sure fans of the show will be happy to know that everyone is officially set to return— especially after actress Sara Ramirez (Dr. Callie Torres) announced her sudden departure from the series via Twitter just after this year’s season finale aired. Like Pompeo, Wilson, Chambers, and Pickens Jr. have been with the show since the very first season. Meanwhile, McKidd has been a series regular as Dr. Hunt since season 5.
Now that we know so many of our favorite Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital staffers will be sticking around, we can’t wait to see what showrunner Shonda Rhimes has in store for them come season 13!
Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC with brand new episodes in the fall.
