Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 Spoilers: Is Seattle Grace acquiring another new doctor?!

Last season was marked with a ton of new additions but the question is: are we going to meet more new doctors this season? Check out these spoilers straight from Grey’s showrunner Shonda Rhimes!

Rest easy, friends. There will be no new docs joining our favorite Seattle Grace gang this season!

Instead, this season will be marked with us getting to know Dr. Jackson Avery and Dr. April Kempner better. Both will be moving into Meredith’s house so we’ll definitely be seeing more of them in and out of the hospital.

For those who dislike Dr. April Kempner, well you’ll probably find yourself liking her better.. Ellen Pompeo, the actress who plays Meredith Grey, says, “Meredith will accept April in order to get the audience to accept her.” Pompeo also hopes that Meredith will function as a mentor to the two previous Mercy Westers because she feels as if “Meredith and Cristina [Sandra Oh] are much further along in their careers than April and Jackson.” No official word yet whether they’ll approach this story but we’ll keep you guys updated when we get more spoilers!

    It’s wonderful that they won’t be introducing new doctors to the show, as the cast is large enough as it is. It IS important to get to know Jackson (and April too, I guess) but what about some of the other characters?

    We have yet to learn anything about Arizona’s family. We’ve heard about her grandfather/father/brother in the moving monologue in Season 6, episode 5, but that’s it. Alex is an original character of the show, and we had to wait to be introduced to a brother on one episode in Season 5, I believe. There was little mention of his family but that’s it. Sloan is tied in to Derek, but have we really gotten into his history? Even Derek himself. We know he was married to Addison, but we have to wait until Private Practice episodes to be introduced to his sisters. Granted, they are suppose to have a crossover this season, but really.

    My point being….instead of getting to know more about Jackson (very happy about him being made a series regular), get to know April (really, why couldn’t they have her gets shot in the finale), or adding another doctor (JT might end up being the newest addition to the large cast), why not try to expand on the history of some of the characters that are already on the show?
