Abigail Spencer will reprise her role as Owen's sister, Megan Hunt in the back half of Grey's Anatomy season 15. The actress shared the news of her return on the medical drama on Twitter.
An official description and airdate for Spencer's return are yet to be announced.
In other Grey's news, showrunner Krista Vernoff dropped an update about the medical juggernaut's future on TV. And it sounds like we'll be seeing more of Meredith and co. for more seasons.
“I came back [for Season 14] energized,” Vernoff told TV Line.
“The show felt new and fresh to me, and like an exciting opportunity to play and reinvent.” That being the case, she’s looking less toward the finish line than she is ahead. “I find myself thinking forward,” she admits. “It feels like the show could really go on. In the early years, we would pitch stories, and Shonda [Rhimes] would go, ‘Uh, that’s a Season 8 story. Let’s do that toward the end.’ Now we’ve doubled the expected lifespan of the show and told all the stories we talked about in the early years, so we have almost a blank slate. Where do you go from here? It’s exciting!”
Series star/director Chandra Wilson, for her part, is planning to stick with the show until the very end.
"I would love to be a starter and a finisher of a thing," she told TV Guide.
"When the show is ready for that last shot, I want to be in that."
Grey's Anatomy airs every Thursdays on ABC.
