Dr Mered­ith Grey (Ellen Pom­peo) and her doc­tor co-work­ers are forced to con­front learn­ing, life, love and death head on.

Five things you must know:

Dr Mi­randa Bai­ley

1 (Chan­dra Wil­son) is the new chief of surgery and is be­ing a dic­ta­tor at home too. Mered­ith kicked

2 re­cov­er­ing al­co­holic Amelia (Ca­te­rina Scor­sone) out in episode 8 (Novem­ber 2015) and Amelia is now back on the bot­tle. Alex (Justin Cham

3 bers) pro­posed to Jo (Camilla Lud­ding­ton) in episode 8 but the hos­pi­tal’s new non-frater­ni­sa­tion rules make things messy. We’re dy­ing to know

4 why Jack­son (Jesse Wil­liams) was smil­ing af­ter his episode 8 fight with es­tranged April (Sarah Drew). And Owen (Kevin

5 McKidd) claims that Mered­ith’s ab­sent BFF Cristina (San­dra Oh) sat next to her at Derek’s fu­neral in the sea­son 11 fi­nale (June 2015). NB!

For­get about McDreamy – it’s all about McTasty now on Grey’s Anatomy (2005cur­rent). Swoon-wor­thy Dr An­drew DeLuca (Gi­a­como Gian­niotti) has just been made a reg­u­lar on the med­i­cal drama and should bring some spice to Dr Pierce’s (Kelly McCreary) love life…

1 Ital­ian-born Gi­a­como moved from Rome, Italy to Toronto, Canada with his fam­ily at a young age but loves go­ing “home”. He even got his first act­ing gig in Italy, as an un­cred­ited walkon part in a 1999 Ital­ian movie filmed at Rome’s fa­mous Cinecittà stu­dios.

2 Gi­a­como grad­u­ated from Hum­ber Col­lege’s theatre pro­gramme in 2012 and got a re­cur­ring role in short­lived com­edy Selfie (2014).

3 The 26-year-old is a book­worm and uses clas­sics to get ideas for his char­ac­ters’ man­ner­isms. “Knowl­edge isn’t only con­text but some­thing tan­gi­ble that you can draw from,” he says.

4 Apart from read­ing, he en­joys writ­ing mu­sic and run­ning his fin­gers across his baby-pink Fender Stra­to­caster gui­tar, which he calls “my favourite lady” on so­cial me­dia.

5 Speak­ing of ladies, Gi­a­como keeps his love life pri­vate, but we know that he wor­ships all things Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider videogame (1996cur­rent) – Lara was played by An­gelina Jolie in the 2001 and 2003 movies.

6 His other in­ter­ests in­clude play­ing videogames and cruis­ing around on his Har­ley David­son mo­tor­bike.

7 In early De­cem­ber 2015, Gi­a­como used his new­found fame and got in­volved in sup­port­ing US can­cer aware­ness or­gan­i­sa­tion Love Your Melon. The ac­tor roped in his Grey’s co-stars to help raise aware­ness of can­cer, stat­ing that the dis­ease has af­fected some of his loved ones.

Ellen Pom­peo is back as Dr Mered­ith Grey.
