Although filming for Grey’s Anatomy season 17 hasn’t started yet, there are already some characters from season 16 who, from the looks of it, are here to stay. Even some of these new additions could become the new Derek for Meredith ( Ellen Pompeo ). Guess who it can be?
According to TV Line reports, Richard Flood, who joined the fiction cast last fall as Dr. Cormac Hayes, could be Grey’s future new partner in the new episodes. However, it is something that has yet to be decided. The current showrunner of the series, Krista Vernoff, has already advanced several occasions that even she has doubts about who could occupy the heart of the protagonist again.
Recall that Meredith ended her ex-boyfriend Andrew DeLuca ( Giacomo Gianniotti ) in the best possible way, however, ex-partners in Grey’s Anatomy are always a matter of doubt.
On the other hand, Anthony Hill, who starred as a guest star last season as Dr. Winston Ndugu, – an old teammate of Maggie’s ( Kelly McCreary ) – has been promoted as a regular character in the series. It may be the start of a new relationship for Meredith’s stepsister.
For the moment, Stefania Spampinato has officially made the jump to the ‘spin-off’ of the Station 19 series, wherever she will be established in the fourth season. But, this move has been quite gradual, as Dr. Carina DeLuca made nearly a dozen appearances last season in the title after starting a romantic relationship with Maya Bishop ( Danielle Savre ).
In Grey’s Anatomy, as always, love is in the air, but finding the new Derek (Patrick Dempsey) is being an almost impossible task.
