at . Comments

Chris Carmack is returning to ABC. 

The actor will check in to Grey's Anatomy this fall as an orthopedic surgeon and is known as an "Ortho God."

As is always the case with Shondaland, details are scarce, but we do know he will be a recurring player this fall.

Carmack is coming off a six-season stint on Nashville which concluded last week on CMT.

The music-infused drama originally aired on ABC for its first four seasons, but the network canceled it in 2016 after amid falling ratings.

There are a lot of changes as we head into Grey's Anatomy Season 15.

Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew were let go from the venerable medical drama, with both exiting the series on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24

The most surprising thing was that Arizona and April got happy endings, and were not killed off in a season finale twist. 

It was a fresh way to take things, but Grey's Anatomy Season 14 served as a rare return to form for the series. 

For the most part, the storylines were fresh, exciting and well-acted. It's difficult to keep things original after fourteen years on the air.

The season also featured the return of Kim Raver as Dr. Teddy Altman. Despite Raver being a recurring player on the season, it was confirmed earlier this year that she would be a series regular once again effective this fall.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
