The four stars have been on the series since its 2005 premiere.

Some are speculating that the poster is giving fans more information about the upcoming season than just a nod to the show’s original cast members. Is the position of Alex’s photo, being in the forefront of Meredith’s mind, alerting fans at a possible romance between the two?

As for everyone’s enthusiastic expression, well that may have something to do with the light-heartedness of season 14.

“It’s funnier, it’s sexier, it’s light,” Grey’s star Giacomo Gianniotti (Andrew) said of the new season’s overall tone. “It’s been dreary for a long time [with so much] separation and loss, so we want to show the characters have some fun.”


The ABC series will feature a number of new cast additions this season, including the return of veteran star Kim Raver as Dr. Teddy Altman. Timeless actress Abigail Spencer will play the role of Owen’s presumed-dead sister Megan and Stefania Spampinato will star as Andrew’s sister Carina.

Grey’s Anatomy returns with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. CT.
