The fan- favourite medical drama featured the most heartbreaking send off in the Season finale. Along came a much unanticipated surprise twist, Maggie /Margaret Pierce (Kelly McCreary). She is presumably Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) half-sister from Richard (James Pickens Jr.).
"Grey's Anatomy" Season 11 is expected to explore the storylines Shonda Rhimes introduced in the last-aired episode. The show will not see any time jump and pick from where it left when it premieres almost after two months.
In an interview with TV Guide, showrunner Shonda Rhimes spilled secrets about Shondaland drama and Maggie's arrival. She revealed that Maggie has been a "piece of story" since Season 4. "It's always been layered into the storyline." However, this information is going to be "very earth-shattering" and what Webber does with it is reportedly "very interesting."
As for Meredith, who is dealing with her best friend's departure, this information is going to "undo everything she thought to be true about her past and her childhood."
Fans can also expect some major drama for MerDer since Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) decided to move to Washington DC, despite his wife's decision of staying back in Seattle. The decision is expected to cause some tremors followed by some cracks in their relationship. The show's creator hinted that it is "something huge" that she restrained from revealing.
Furthermore, TV Line reveals that when "Grey's Anatomy" Season 11 kicks off not more than 24 hours would have passed since the events of the finale. With her person gone and husband planning to leave her behind, Meredith will still be struggling with all the changes in her life.
"Grey's Anatomy" has played out several storylines at one time. However, in the upcoming season the show will shift its focus or it can be said that it will narrow its focus. Based on Shonda Rhimes' information to the publication, it turns out that "Grey's Anatomy" Season 11 will be more about Meredith and everything and everyone connected to her.
"Right now, if you were in the writers' room, you would probably tell me that the theme is 'Meredith," Shonda Rhimes reveals.
"Because all I keep saying is, 'The show is just about Meredith Grey!'"
Shonda Rhimes calls it "Meredith-centric season."
"She's lost her 'person,' her [half-]sister has shown up, her husband is chafing to go someplace else..." Shonda Rhimes said.
At the same time, the big revelation about Maggie's paternity "will be influenced by what Meredith went through with Lexie."
Meanwhile, ABC unveiled their fall 2014-2015 schedule and some of the most popular shows are returning. "Grey's Anatomy's" airdate is no surprise as it follows the tradition of premiering in the month of September. To be specific, "Grey's Anatomy" Season 11 Episode 1 airs Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 in a new time slot.
