Feels like only yesterday that our favorite docs were interns, but we’ve seen many an intern come and go since then, however, it looks like the newest batch could be sticking around.
Grey’s Anatomy is giving its new crop of interns a nice vote of confidence heading into next season.
The soap’s boss, Shonda Rhimes, has added a series regular option to the contracts of recurring players Jerrika Hinton(Stephanie), Gaius Charles (Shane) and Tessa Ferrer (Leah). Fellow newbie Camilla Luddington(Jo) already had such a clause in her deal, while the fate of Tina Majorino (Heather) is complicated by her role in the TNT pilot Legends. If that series fails to snag a series order, Majorino likely will return toGrey’s.
While the legal move doesn’t ensure the actors will be series regulars in Season 10, it does suggest that Rhimes is seriously considering such a possibility. At the very least, the group will stick around through the end of the current Season 9.
Formal pickup letters go out in June.
Are you happy to see the interns stick around?
