Let’s find out who the veteran Grey’s Anatomy cast will be returning for the highly anticipated 20th season of the medical drama.
While Grey’s Anatomy approaching its momentous 20th season, negotiations with i veteran cast memberswhose contracts are expiring, were completed quickly, ensuring the return of all the beloved actors that fans have grown fond of over the years.
We are talking, of course, of the last two original cast members, James Pickens Jr. (Richard) and Chandra Wilson (Bailey), but also of Kevin McKidd (Owen), Kim Raver (Teddy), Camilla Luddington (Jo) and Caterina Scorsone (Amelia). Reaffirming these actors has certainly reassured fans after the major transformations that took place during the nineteenth season, which saw the departure of the protagonist Ellen Pompeo, and Kelly McCreary and Krista Vernoff, showrunners of the show.
The addition of five new cast members, Harry Shum Jr., Adelaide Kane, Alexis Floyd, Niko Terho and Midori Francis, helped make the transformations of the nineteenth season even more evident. At the moment it appears that the show hasn’t confirmed the return of these new actors yet, but they are all expected to return for next season as well.
Pickens, Wilson, McKidd, Raver, Luddington, Scorsone, along with more recent cast members such as Chris Carmack and Jake Borelli, have allowed Grey’s Anatomy to successfully overcome a generational change and to reinvent itself without the main character, positioning itself as the number one entertainment series on ABC both in terms of live ratings and views on various streaming platforms.
With the series’ cast contracts concluded, fans can now expect Season 20 to continue the engaging storytelling of Grey’s Anatomy and the development of the beloved characters they have come to know and love over the course of more than 19 years. The show’s ability to adapt and thrive in the face of significant change is a testament to its enduring popularity and the talent of its cast and showrunners.
