Kelly McCreary won't be checking out of Grey's Anatomy any time soon.
The actress - who plays Meredith's half-sister, Dr. Maggie Pierce - on the long-running ABC medical drama has been promoted to series regular status.
McCreary came on board toward the conclusion of Grey's Anatomy Season 10 when Pierce was hired at Grey Sloan Memorial as the head of cardiothoracic surgery.
The character hasn't exactly enjoyed a smooth relationship with her partial sibling, though that began to change last Thursday when the pair bonded over their late mother's diary.
Grey's Anatomy Season 11 Episode 5, "Bend & Break" airs tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
And then Grey's Anatomy Season 11 Episode 6 airs in two weeks, on November 6, at 8/7c.
