Grey’s Anatomy Season 12 returns in the fall, but there is already a lot of talks and discussion surrounding it. Created by Shona Rhimes, the show has enjoyed a successful run ever since the very first season.
There are speculations that April Kepner is set to fill in the shoes of the Chief of Sloan Memorial Hospital. Sarah Drew has, however, denied the rumor stating clearly that her character is not going to follow Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.).
Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) has been trying to convince April to fill in the shoes of her husband, but Kepner is determined to not let herself get occupied in administrative work and hospital politics. She is going to use her skills as a doctor to save as many lives as possible.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Drew said that April isn’t ready for all the paperwork that is associated with the position of the Chief of Surgery. She would rather use her hands to handle trauma and continue being a healer, which she knows she is brilliant in.
With April out of the picture, it looks like Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) will get to enjoy the position that she has been waiting for a very long time. However, it will not be an easy walk to the office of the Chief of Surgery. Bailey will have to fight it out with the candidate that Catherine will nominate.
According to TV Line, Dr. Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) might be the second option for Catherine, when April refuses the position. With Capshaw extending her contract with Grey’s Anatomy for two more years it looks like she will indeed have a meaty role to play in Grey’s Anatomy Season 12.
The original star cast of Grey’s Anatomy has been changed and replaced over the course of the year. With Dr. Derek Shepherd’s (Patrick Dempsey) sudden death, the number of original star cast is dwindling, but it looks like there is something happy in store for the fans of Grey’s Anatomy.
There are reports that Katherine Heigl is going to make a comeback in Grey’s Anatomy Season 12. Katherine Heigl had left the show in 2010, but there are rumors about her coming back doing the rounds.
The rumors started when State of Affairs, an upcoming show by NBC was cancelled. Heigl was a part of the series and with her contract with NBC on, it looks like the network might place her in Grey’s Anatomy.
