UPDATED WITH TRAILER: ABC is preparing audiences for the return of Grey’s Anatomy.
Dr. Meredith Grey is front and center in the new teaser for Season 20, despite Ellen Pompeo moving to a guest star role to make time for her Hulu limited series Orphan. While Meredith might have moved to Boston at the end of Season 19, it appears she’ll be making a few trips back to Seattle to visit Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital in the upcoming episodes.

The teaser opens with Meredith seemingly asking Miranda Bailey, “How long do I have to wait?” — although, it’s not clear what she’s waiting on. In another interaction, Bailey tells Meredith that the interns “are in trouble.”
Nick Marsh (Scott Speedman) is also back at Grey Sloan and hovering over the interns after the Season 19 finale when he and Meredith professed their feelings for each other in Boston. Speaking of the interns, they seem to be caught in the thick of plenty of messy situations at the hospital.
Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Link (Chris Carmack) are now a thing, and Richard (James Pickens Jr.) is struggling with his sobriety.
The teaser also gives an update on the fate of Teddy Altman (Kim Raver), whose fate was left hanging in the balance at the end of Season 19 when she collapsed after complaining of a toothache. At the end of the teaser, Winston (Anthony Hill) says that she’s in “critical condition.”
Watch the full trailer above, as well as a previous teaser for Season 20 below. Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC on March 14.
