Grey's Anatomy Season 11: All About Meredith!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Her Person is gone. Her husband may soon be joining her.

But Meredith Grey will not be going anywhere on Grey's Anatomy Season 11. Creator Shonda Rhimes has made that very clear.

"Right now, if you were in the writers’ room, you would probably tell me that the theme is ‘Meredith,’” Rhimes tells TV Line of Season 11. “Because all I keep saying is, ‘The show is just about Meredith Grey!"

A New Assitant

Don't expect a time jump to take place when the series returns on September 25, but do look forward to what Rhimes describes as a “Meredith-centric season."

And a lot of that focus will have to do with Maggie, Meredith's half-sister (courtesy of Richard) who was formerly introduced as such on the Grey's Anatomy Season 10 finale.

“What Webber does with the information is going to be very interesting,” Rhimes teases to TV Guide. "Whether Richard admits his part in it at all is going to be very interesting. It's very earth-shattering information. It undoes everything Meredith thought to be true about her past and her childhood."

As for other fan favorites this fall?

Look for Bailey to not respond well to Yang giving her board position to Alex; for April and Jackson “to grow up in a way that’s amazing” in the wake of their pregnancy news; and for Calzona to face "problems" via the concept of their surrogate.

We know what you're thinking: Is it September 25 yet?!?

While you await the premiere, you can always watch Grey's Anatomy online and relive your favorite episodes.

Derek is a very important character in this tv show. And a very inportant person in Meredith's life. Please, we need more happy MerDer moments.

Why can't Meredith have a brother for once? Or maybe he's still to come?

I am a huge fan of the show and Meredith is one of my favorite characters. Therefore I am looking for a “Meredith season” with joy. It will be interesting to see her face the loss of her person and the argument about her career with Derek. I just hope they don’t break off again, now that they have kids. Last but not least, I fill with enthusiasm about Amelia’s presence. On the other hand and like Tammy, I don’t like too much the half-sister’s storyline. I find unrealistic that Meredith has siblings of both her parents and didn’t know anything about this before her late twenties. I have to be convinced about all this.

Everyone has to have problems, otherwise it's boring. If not Callie and Arizona, who else is there to give problems too? Bailey has problems (and she really needs to excel). Alex will have problems with Bailey up his butt. Derek may not be around much...They ALL have problems. I like the new sister idea. And I love that the focus is on Meredith. I'm looking forward to next season.

More problems for calzona? Seriously?! That's all they had last season was 'problems' and they can't have Derek leave. Derek is also a very big part of Grey's Anatomy, if shonda has him leave I'm thinking the show won't last much longer.

I am freaking out about the "Her Person is gone. Her husband may soon be joining her." I have accepted the fact that Yang is gone, but Derek can't leave we need our MerDer and to see the brother sister stuff between Derek and Amelia. I am living in denial about the fight they had in 10x24, since I just watched all 10 season in 2-3 weeks for the first time(then I watched private practice and grow to love Amelia). Form being a new fan of the show this wait sucks.

I am a huge fan and have been with this show since the beginning. That being said, it's like they've run out of ideas for it. Bailey always gets the shaft, another surprise sister and Callie and Arizona with another problem.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
