ABC will finally put an end to last season's cliffhangers as the network premieres an all-new season of Grey's Anatomy
on Thursday, September 24 at 9pm, following the series premiere of the new drama series Flash Forward.
This leaves us nearly four months before we learn the fate of T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl, whose characters, George and Izzie, both seemingly departed the fifth season finale of the medical drama, leaving viewers with no definite indication of whether either or both are dead or alive. But learning if George survives and if Alex will kick off the season as a widower aren't the only cliffhangers that plague Grey's Anatomy
fans as they wait for the new season to begin.
Many viewers are also curious to find out whether Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) can make it work and if a real wedding will ever be in the cards for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey). Let's also not forget Bailey (Chandra Wilson), who is struggling to find some balance with her career and single motherhood, and Callie (Sara Ramirez), who has taken her relationship with Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) to the next level.
In other news, cast member Chandra Wilson is briefly diverting her attention to the Broadway stage. As reported previously, the Grey's Anatomy
actress has been cast as Matron Mama Morton in the play Chicago,
which her co-stars from the medical drama came to watch last Monday.
"She was absolutely amazing," James Pickens, Jr., who plays Richard Webber on Grey's Anatomy
, told People.
"She was perfect and should be very proud of her performance. I had a great time watching her."
"I paid them lots of money for them to do [the cheering]," Wilson said with a smile. "I'm absolutely thankful they came out. We all try to support each other as much as humanly possible so to have them out there and have friends out there felt really good."
