‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Boss Teases What’s Ahead for Meredith in the ‘Season of Love’
Grey’s Anatomy‘s titular leading lady, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), has been single since the departure of Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson). And while she certainly doesn’t need a man — she is, after all, a Harper Avery Award-winning surgeon who successfully juggles a career, friends, and single motherhood — series showrunner Krista Vernoff told TVLine that she will indeed find love again in season 15.
Buzz around Dr. Grey’s love life sparked Tuesday, August 7, when ABC president Channing Dungey told TVLine the character would remain single for the time being. “Meredith [is going to] have a new trajectory that is more focused on who she is as a single mother and surgeon,” Dungey said. “Ellen has spoken very loudly about how she doesn’t want all of Meredith’s adventures to be romantic ones.”
One day later, though, Vernoff added an asterisk to Dungey’s claim, saying, “Channing was keeping it mellow and trying to avoid spoilers because Shondaland is secrecy land. But as the showrunner, I can confirm for you that Meredith Grey is very much a part of our Season of Love.”
Vernoff noted that Meredith’s kids and “game-changing medical ideas” would be a big part of her story, but that the writers wanted to pick up the thread they started last season when Scott Speedman guest-starred as Dr. Nick Marsh, whose brief stint as Meredith’s patient “awoke a desire in her that she can’t put back to sleep.”
“The question this season,” Vernoff told TVLine, “is not ‘Will Meredith Grey find love again,’ but ‘With whom will she find love?'”
Unfortunately for fans, it probably won’t be with Speedman’s Nick Marsh. Vernoff said that character was “designed as a one-episode guest star.”
Grey’s Anatomy season 15 will premiere on Thursday, September 27, at 8/7c on ABC.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
