It's unclear exactly when Grey's Anatomy Season 9 will pick up relative to where May's finale left off, but the show is now casting for two new surgeons in the wake of this spring's tragic death and departures.
Two new surgeons to be hired at Seattle Grace Mercy West this season:
- Dr. Parker, described as an elite physician in his 40s or 50s
- Dr. Mel Barnett, a slightly younger surgeon than Parker
And then there's this additional casting note: Seattle Grace is reportedly looking for two medical professionals, a man and a woman, who are “smart” but “not Hollywood handsome / pretty.”
No word on how regular these characters will be, or how they will fit in with the main cast, but we welcome your theories, as well as thoughts on who you think should play them, below!
