Who is Coming and Leaving in Grey's Anatomy?
Grey’s Anatomy season 15 has promised to be the “Season of Love”. With a dramatic but unusually pleasant ending to season 14, fans were left with all kinds of excitement and curiosity for the new season. Most importantly, we want to know who’s coming back and who isn’t.
It’s hard to believe that some of the original characters from the very first episode of Grey’s are still in full force at the hospital. We’ve been introduced to some new faces since then that have become an important part of the Grey’s family.
Shonda Rhimes has her characters coming and going pretty often, without much warning. At this point, we feel lucky when someone at least isn’t killed. Thankfully, the season 14 finale spared us from any deaths of our favorite characters. To make it easy, we’ve compiled a list of exactly who will be coming and leaving Grey’s Anatomy in season 15.
Who Is Leaving Grey's Anatomy For Season 15
Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw)
At the close of season 14, it was revealed that Arizona would be moving to New York in order for Sofia to be closer to Callie Torres (Sara Ramirex). Arizona was definitely a hard goodbye for us, she's been with us forever. However, we're more than happy to see her and Callie maybe work things out, while Sofia will be able to see both of her mothers.
April Kepner (Sarah Drew)
April's departure was unexpected and abrupt. She was involved in a bad car accident that prompted her to quit her job and move onto volunteer work. She also reconnected with her ex-fiance, Matthew Taylor (Justin Bruening) and the two decided to get married. We're glad April had her happy ending, but she won't be coming back.
Who Is Coming Back For Grey's Anatomy Season 15?
Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo)
If Grey's Anatomy goes on, so does Meredith Grey. Season 15 promises to bring Meredith new opportunities and challenges that just might involve some romance. We're excited to see Meredith grow, date, and kill the mom game.
Alex Karev (Justin Chambers)
Alex has been messing around at the hospital since day one of Grey's Anatomy. He's finally married to the woman of his dreams, Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) and we're really hoping this one works out. Either way, season 15 promises to keep things interesting for Alex.
Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.)
It's hard to believe Dr. Webber is still even alive for season 15-- he was already the old guy on the first episode of the show. However, the atmosphere at the hospitlal would definitely feel empty without him. We're glad to have him back in this upcoming season, and we're sure Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) is too.
Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd)
Owen won't just be returning for season 15, he'll be returning with Teddy's baby on the way. To make matters worse, he's still not completely done with Amelia. We're eager to see how the dynamic of those relationships will turn out.
Teddy Altman (Kim Raver)
We've officially been promised the return of Teddy for season 15. We got to see a little bit of Teddy at the end of season 14 when Owen visited her in Germany, but we definitely weren't ready for the pregnancy news. Will Owen and Amelia be ready for this one?
Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone)
It's a wonder Amelia will be returning for season 15, since she hasn't always been a fan favorite. Ever since Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) died, all she's really been is a constant reminder of McDreamy. This upcoming season promises to feature Amelia in a love triangle with Owen and Teddy... talk about drama!
Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington)
The last time we saw Jo during the season 14 finale, she finally married Alex. This upcoming season will be very promising for Jo, especially when it comes to her career. There have even been rumors that Jo will finally find her surgical specialty.
Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti)
Seeing more of DeLuca in season 15 is an absolute must. We're most looking forward to the eye candy and possible romantic avenues DeLuca might take. We're about to enter the "Season of Love" and no one is safe from it's wrath.
Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary)
Maggie's cute but awkward personality will be returning to Grey's for a fifteeth season. Since the first time we were introduced to her, a lot has changed for the better. It's great for Jackson to have a new love interest, and we're glad Meredith still has somewhat of a sister.
Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams)
With April finally out of the picture for good, we're hoping Jackson will be unstoppable. He's a great surgeon with the best looks in the hospital, anyone would be lucky to die him down again. It's been seeming like Maggie is perfect for the job!
Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson)
Dr. Bailey, The Nazi, or whatever you call her is the most fierce character of the cast. She stops at nothing when it comes to surgery except for when it comes to her son. Season 15 will definitely see a lot of Dr. Bailey, we're hoping this is both in and out of the hospital walls.
