Grey’s Anatomy season 18 cast: Who’ll be in it?
We’d expect to see all of the following return for season 18:
Ellen Pompeo (Dr Meredith Grey), Chandra Wilson (Dr Miranda Bailey), James Pickens Jr (Dr Richard Webber), Kevin McKidd (Dr Owen Hunt), Caterina Scorsone (Dr Amelia Shepherd), Camilla Luddington (Dr Jo Wilson), Kelly McCreary (Dr Maggie Pierce), Kim Raver (Dr Teddy Altman), Jake Borelli (Dr Levi Schmitt), Chris Carmack (Dr Atticus “Link” Lincoln), Anthony Hill (Dr Winston Ndugu) and Richard Flood (Dr Cormac Hayes).
“The fans loved season 17. I thought Grey’s Anatomy did a really incredible job this year telling the stories of all the frontline heroes who are fighting the good fight [against] COVID. We will take Grey’s Anatomy for as long as we can.”
Grey’s Anatomy spoilers
It’s official: Grey’s Anatomy season 18 is all systems go, which is hardly surprising given how many viewers it pulls in, time and time again.
Kate Walsh will be reprising her role of Dr Addison Forbes Montgomery. She was a central player in seasons two and three, before leaving to star in spin-off Private Practice. Addison last appeared in Grey’s back in 2012.
“Dr Addison Montgomery is coming back to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, and I’m so excited to be home again joining Shonda [Rhimes], Ellen [Pompeo], and the rest of the incredible cast,” she said (via Instagram).
“Season 18. Just wait until you see what she has in store for you.”
Abigail Spencer will be back as trauma surgeon Megan, Dr Owen Hunt’s younger sister, who we last saw in season 15 when she moved to Los Angeles with her partner Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson), who is also possibly joining her.
Kate Burton is also returning as Meredith’s late mother Dr Ellis Grey for “multiple episodes”, and Peter Gallagher (The OC) will feature as new character Dr Alan Hamilton, who knew Ellis.
But Giacomo Gianniotti will not return after his character Dr Andrew DeLuca was stabbed and died of his injuries.
“When I heard that it wasn’t anything to do with that [his mental health and his bipolar diagnosis] and he was to be murdered by a sex trafficker – and that it was an opportunity to recall a storyline that got a lot of buzz from last season and shed a light on an issue that is very important – I think it all made sense,” he told Digital Spy.
“I just saw that we could tell this story and highlight an issue that should be highlighted.”

And both Jesse Williams and Greg Germann also departed, with Dr Jackson Avery and Dr Tom Koracick leaving to join the Catherine Fox Foundation in Boston.
“Greg Germann is a comic genius and we are so lucky that he brought his talents to our show these last few years,” said Vernoff. “We will miss Greg terribly in the day to day – but we plan to see Tom Koracick again [as a guest star].” (via Deadline).
Grey’s Anatomy season 18 plot: What will it be about?
As ever, the creatives behind the show haven’t given us much to go on in terms of what we can expect, but after 17 seasons under your belts, you know the drill. And there will obviously be some unexpected twists and turns along the way to keep you on your toes.
But is this set to be its final outing?
“I’ve told [ABC] that I have to know before I’m making the finale what we’re making,” said Vernoff. “Because there are a couple of character threads that will change. I’ve got plans for both contingencies. Either there will be closure or I will build something in that allows me to have a bit of a cliffhanger and a thread for next season.”
As soon as we – and Vernoff – know the future of the show, we’ll update you, so do keep this page bookmarked for all the latest news and scoops.

Looking ahead to what comes next, ABC Signature President Jonnie Davis said (via Deadline): “[Showrunner Krista Vernoff] and the team are really digging deep and finding out what that looks like. They are noodling ideas and I can’t wait to, when we land on what that is, introduce the next phase of Grey’s Anatomy. We will find the next version that will take it to the next 18 years. We’re working on for right now, and there’s no better brains to figure it out than Krista and [creator Shonda Rhimes].”
Naturally, fans started speculating that a spinoff is on the cards, but Davis later refuted that: “There are no conversations about a spinoff of Grey’s Anatomy at this time. We are 100% focused on producing season 18, with the incredible Krista Vernoff at the helm, and the amazing Ellen Pompeo leading our ensemble and co-executive producing. As the leader of ABC Signature, I meant only to convey my support and optimism for Shonda’s brilliant creation.”

Paging Dr. Meredith Grey to ABC’s fall primetime lineup! After season 17 was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, the network officially renewed the long-running medical drama for a new season in May 2021. A month later, ABC confirmed that its season finale was the week’s “No.1 entertainment series” among adults.
“Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy have done an incredible job of honoring real-life heroes by giving audiences an unflinching look at one of the biggest medical stories of our time,” Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich said via a statement at the time. “Krista [Vernoff] and her team of writers have continued to deliver the compelling and compassionate storytelling that is a hallmark of these shows, and created some of the year’s most-talked-about moments in television. We’re so grateful to our talented casts and crews for their extraordinary work that connects with viewers everywhere, and we look forward to sharing even more defining moments with our fans next season.”
