Grey's Anatomy: Here are the major cast changes in season 14
Grey’s Anatomy will be undergoing some big changes in season 14.
Don’t worry, characters like Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) aren’t going anywhere, but a few familiar faces will be exiting or returning this year. EW has gathered the latest intel to help you keep track of the comings and goings at Grey Sloan this season:
Who’s not coming back:
Jerrika Hinton, who played Stephanie Edwards since season 9, exited as a series regular at the close of season 13. Tessa Ferrer, whose Dr. Leah Murphy was also part of the season 9 cast, had previously exited in season 10, but returned last year in a recurring status. However, she’s not expected to be back in season 14. Marika Domińczyk, who joined the cast as Eliza Minnick, a recurring love interest for Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), will not return after her character was fired in the season 13 finale. Bridget Regan, who originally played Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) presumed-dead sister, has been recast with Abigail Spencer, who will recur in season 14.
Besides the addition of Spencer to the cast, Italian actress Stefania Spampinato joins in the recurring role of Andrew DeLuca’s (Giacomo Gianniotti) sister Carina, who boards the Grey Sloan crew as a controversial new doc. EW has also confirmed that Ally McBeal alum Greg Germann will guest star, though details on his role are being kept under wraps.
Kim Raver, who exited the series in season 8, will reprise her role as Teddy Altman, while Matthew Morrison is expected to return as Jo’s abusive husband, Paul Stadler. For the record, here are all the regular characters returning: Meredith Grey, Alex Karev, Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), Owen Hunt, Arizona Robbins, April Kepner (Sarah Drew), Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams), Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone), Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington), Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), Ben Warren (Jason George), Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson), Andrew DeLuca, and Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen).
Grey’s Anatomy returns with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
