Four new characters are set to join the cast of Grey’s Anatomy in season 9, TVLine reports.

TVLine’s Michael Ausiello has the scoop on the four new doctors at Seattle Grace:

“Shonda Rhimes is staffing up in the wake of last season’s literal killing spree. Two of the new hires: Dr. Parker, a top-of-his-game physician in his 40s or 50s, and Dr. Mel Barnett, who’s slightly younger. Seattle Grace is also looking for two medical professionals, a man and a woman, who are ‘smart’ and ‘not Hollywood handsome/pretty.’”

Although no other season 9 details have surfaced, creator Shonda Rhimes tweeted Tuesday about finalizing the Grey’s season premiere script.


Grey’s Anatomy returns this fall.

What are your season 9 predictions?

    Arizona dies. McDreamy can no longer be a surgeon and therefore retires to “teach”. Christina stays and all of a sudden wants to be a mother and is no longer career driven… Oh, the possibilities!

  • ChocolateClarinet

    I feel like Grey’s is following in E.R.’s footsteps. Freak accidents, doctors dying off and being sent elsewhere, new cast members. Just waiting for one of them to get their arm chopped off on a helicopter pad, basically.

    can’t wait!

  • Kate

    Why is Cristina not in the pic? Please tell me she is in the next season, she is the best character!!

    • Gary65

    Scandal is a great show too!!

  • Arthur

    Who cares? They are all going to die at the end of the season!

  • Joshua Redwine

    well they’re going to need a new head of neuro after derek’s hand got messed up in the finale. His career is done-with.

    I have no idea what they want with less attractive doctors. The hot surgeon model works. Lets not bring in average looking people to muck things up. lol

    • sarahd15

      They might come up with some “miracle” to save Derek’s hand. They’ve done it plenty of times (saving Meredith when she drowned, Izzie’s cancer, fixing Burke’s arm, etc).

      • Joshua Redwine

        see, but I think that accident is the exact kind of excuse they need to keep Meredith in Seattle. He needs a reason to have to turn down the new job.

    If arizona or callie dies or leaves GA, the show will lose huge numbers of viewers..
