Grey’s Anatomy Season 9: Everything We Know So Far

2 years ago, by

Grey’s Anatomy is without a doubt one of the most successful TV shows that aired on the past 8 years. The medical drama premiered last September 2005 with a total of 16.25 million viewers and is still consistently a top-rating contender among its competition. After eight seasons, the show continues to amaze us with its original storylines and groundbreaking medical drama — and bonus, the chemistry of the whole ensemble which in my opinion grows more and more fans each season. After winning 3 Emmy awards, can the show still strive for another win in Grey’s Anatomy season 9? Here’s what we know:

It is no secret that the originals of the cast are on the brink of letting go of the phenomenal medical series. This is due to the contract negotiation with the network that still seemed to be unsettled. Shonda Rhimes, however, is not worried. She tells TV Guide that: “I have no idea. I have my fingers crossed. What I think is really lovely is that everybody wants to come back. There’s [money] stuff happening. I am [confident], but I have a plan in place for the finale that can occur regardless of who is staying.”

Indeed, confidence is key. TV Line recently confirmed that the show is a slam-dunk for a season 9 renewal. Well, what’s the surprise? The show has been sprinting the ratings board consistently in its current season 8. Nielsen reported its last April4 episode with 3.3% in the demo (0% episode-to-episode change) with 9.45 million — and ofcourse, first in the timeslot. That number goes the same too for the preceding episode.

The season 8 finale is just around the corner with a lot of spreading spoilers about a huge, dramatic finale. Shonda revealed that one of the major cast will face a sticky ending. Who will it be still stands on a high anonymity status. Don’t get worried for some the originals though, cause Michael Ausiello of TV Line had already ruled them out from the “who’s dying prospects”.

    i think its kepner she is disturbed and might kill herself . i can take it if her character dies but not merder, calzona, mark/lexie. im happy that yang is still in it. Or maybe Alex carev . He is kind of a person that will save other persons life over his.

  • Ralucarrie

    well I’ve read that Karev,Meredith,Derek,Bailey and Christina and the chief will still be in the next two seasons and I think that Lexi is leaving because I’ve seen in the video that she is very mad injured…or maybe Mark wiil do something courageous to save her and prove her that he still loves her:X:X:X or maybe Arizona will die,but I think that Alex is safe bcuz Ihe isn’t even in the plane,Arizona had a fight with him bcuz he wants to leave:)…Fingers crossed:D

THANKS AGAIN FOR KEEPING ARIZONA AND CALLIE IN THE SHOW .CAN’T WAIT TILL NEXT SEASON !  XENAB

    What I hated about the finale wast that Shonda didn’t give Mark&Lexie time together in the episodes before. I mean she knew that Lexie was the one who is going to die, so she could at least (for the fans) put them together as a couple for the last few episodes…It would have been dramatic anyway. 

  • GreysFan

     I agree I guess the network didn’t want the finale to be two hours which could have helped give Lexi a proper send off but I think her death will be alot of the focus for the majority of season 9 especially for Mark, Derek, and Meredith

    How much more heart breaking crap do these people have to suffer! Come on now let’s take away a sister! What the crap Lexie loved her and Mark come on!

  • KathyB 23

    I have been a loyal fan since the begIning. I love Gray’s! I know that this is a drama and life is filled with heart ache and sometime no happy endings. But Lexie’s death really hit me hard! I’m actually for the first time angry with Shonda! How many more loved and even unloved characters does she have to bend and break and worst trash by giving them a shitty death! Horrible and Mer didn’t even get to say good- bye! I hope Shonda doesn’t get tired of any more of her Charcters and kills them off too. Life in Gray’s is becoming more depressing! And I can’t believe I’m about to say this but I hope the show doesn’t last too much longer! And hopefully we’ll have some kinda of happy ending after the depression!

  • greysrks

    I am on her side, I probably won’t want to watch the show if the directors decide to kill off Arizona or Alex.
