In an interview with TV Line, Grey’s Anatomy creator and executive-producer Shonda Rhimes, gave some details as to what will be going on between Alex, Meredith and Jo when Grey’s returns on September 25th.

Grey’s Anatomy Scoop: Alex and Jo’s Latest Threat — Meredith?!

File this one under “Grey’s Anatomy‘s Triangles We Never Thought We’d See.”

Series creator Shonda Rhimes tells TVLine that, in Season 11, Meredith, of all people — yes, Meredith, that Meredith — is going to throw a monkey wrench into Alex and Jo’s still-nascent romance.

“Jo is going to be horrified to discover how much time Alex is going to be spending with Meredith,” she previews, “and how much time Meredith is going to be spending [at their] house.”

And, no doubt, Jo will ask the same question we have: Why is this happening? Why, when the drama returns on Sept. 25, will Alex and Mer be joined at the hip? The answer: Cristina.

“Alex feels responsible for her,” Rhimes explains. “He feels like Cristina didn’t just leave him a seat on the board and the shares, she left him Meredith as well.”

And, since Mer will not only be dealing with Cristina’s absence and trouble with Derek but also (eventually) the revelation that she has another half sister, she is going to need a (strictly platonic) shoulder to lean on and an ear to bend.

“The two people she talked to before — her husband and her best friend — are now not available to her,” notes Rhimes. “So she’s looking for someone to talk to. And Alex finds himself in the uncomfortable position of being the recipient of a lot of the stuff that Cristina would have been left listening to — sometimes in very funny ways.

“They’re the last men standing of those original interns,” Rhimes continues. “I wouldn’t say they’re becoming besties. [It’s more that] they’ve always had a very close relationship that didn’t ever need a lot of work because they always had a million other people there. Now, it’s sort of the two of them, and they do become closer.”

TV Guide published a brief preview for the returning Fall shows this week. This is what it had to say about season 11 of Grey’s Anatomy.

TV GUIDE: RETURNING FALL SHOWS

Grey’s Anatomy (ABC)
Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8/7c

Where We Left Off: Cristina said farewell just as Meredith’s life was hitting an impasse: Derek wants to move to Washington, D.C. and new half-sister Margaret — the love child of Ellis Grey and Richard Webber who was put up for adoption — has just started to work at Grey Sloan. Meanwhile, Bailey was poised to take Cristina’s seat on the board, but Alex was gifted her shares. Also, April revealed to Jackson that she was pregnant.
What’s Next: Meredith won’t take a backseat to Derek for very long, Owen may get a new love interest — possibly Amelia, who will be sticking around Seattle — Alex will fight for his position on the board, though Bailey won’t “go quietly,” Shonda Rhimes says. Also, we’ll get to see exactly how Ellis Grey was able to hide that her pregnancy with Margaret via flashback.

 
A few fan pics were posted on social media over the last few days and now I’ll just post them all at once. Click on the thumbnails for the bigger pics.

There were some technical issues with the site the last couple of days but things have been fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This Tuesday was the first table read for season 11 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ with filming starting this Friday. Grey’s creator and exec-producer, Shonda Rhimes, posted a photo of Justin and co-star Camilla Luddington.

ABC announced the Fall premiere dates for their shows yesterday, and now we know that the season 11 premiere of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ will be on Thursday, September 25th.
Canadian viewers, however, will be able to watch the season premiere on Wednesday, September 24th on CTV.

 
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ creator and executive producer, Shonda Rhimes, was interviewed and teased the upcoming season. This is what she had to say about the story line related to Alex.

Grey’s Anatomy’s Shonda Rhimes Teases Half-Sister Twist, Possible New Romance

How will Bailey feel about Yang giving her position on the board to Alex?
Rhimes: Bailey is not going to go quietly. Bailey has taken a lot of crap and had a lot of hits, and Bailey is done having a lot of hits. I do feel like she has been very overlooked and underestimated. She may be done with that at this point.

Will Alex feel bad about this or is he ready to step up at the hospital?
Rhimes: I think Alex is looking out for himself and that is not wrong from his point of view.

EDIT: Adding the tidbit from Shonda’s interview with ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ below.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’s’ Shonda Rhimes: Season 11 to Focus on Meredith, Explore Callie and Arizona’s ‘Band-Aid’

What can you say about Alex and Jo’s (Camilla Luddington) relationship going forward, especially since he may now be on the board?
Alex and Jo are in an interesting place. She is a really interesting influence on him. I don’t know that I would talk about them in terms of their relationship just yet because that’s not really the focus at the moment. His responsibilities in who he is becoming because Cristina has left him these shares and a seat on the board, what that means for him is complex. Does he want that? Is that what he’s looking for? Did he want the money grab that being Dr. Butthole provided him or does he want to be the guy who has a seat on the board? That is a big deal for him to figure out what he wants.

Another video interview was posted at french channel TF1’s site. Because it’s geo-blocked for people outside of France (boo!), I uploaded it to Youtube.
The video can be watched at the source here: Justin Chambers « Alex et Jo, la famille risque de s’agrandir !» or below.

In this video, Justin discusses the evolution of Alex and his relationship with Jo. Also, Justin speaks a bit in french.

 
There have been quite a few interviews that have come out over the last couple of weeks from the ABC Studios press tour, but they’re mostly in french. I’ll try translating them and posting sometime. In the meantime, here is one from Portuguese newspaper, Metro.

Justin Chambers
For almost 11 years he’s played the role of Dr. Alex Karev in “Grey’s Anatomy”. We sat down with the actor in London where he explained his motivations.

“I have gained Alex’s mannerisms”

How does an actor stay motivated to play the same character for 10 or 11 years?
That’s a good question, because I don’t know! Maybe a check and knowing you have a job? But more seriously: in “Grey’s Anatomy” we have a lot of people coming in and leaving, even in each episode. I think I inspire myself in the way they commit, by the freshness they bring. The characters that Shonda [Rhimes, creator of the show] wrote have the necessary flaws to keep the show interesting. It’s like if you asked me: “Why do viewers keep watching the show?” It also goes for us actors: if we seem to be interested, it’s because it must be interesting.

Are you still surprised by the scripts you get?
Sure. A few seasons ago Alex ratted Meredith out in a specific situation. I told Shonda that I didn’t think my character was capable of committing that kind of betrayal. It didn’t seem like him! So we both sat down and agreed on: “We’ll get him drunk, because people do stupid things when they drink.” It really is like that: there are things that we might not understand, but what my character does can affect Arizona and then Callie…

Sorry for the lack of updates the last few days, but I needed a bit of a break and now things have piled up. Today, I told myself, “Time to stop procrastinating, Diana!” lol

Justin is currently in Brussels (Belgium), but here’s a roundup of stuff that came out during Justin’s stop in London for the ABC Studios Press Tour.

First off, a couple of interviews…


Exclusive! Grey’s guy feels like an “old” TV star

Grey’s Anatomy star Justin Chambers has been playing the part of Dr. Alex Karev in the hit U.S medical drama since 2004, so it’s not surprising that he feels like “an old TV actor.”

Speaking about working on the same show for over ten years, Justin told RTÉ Ten: “I feel like an old TV actor. It’s been a great ride. It’s wild how quickly it’s gone, but at the same time, I don’t really remember life before this show. It seems like this is what I’ve always done.”

He added: “Not many people can say in today’s world that they have been part of television history for over ten seasons. I’m still excited to be there. I’m still excited to work with the people I work with. Hopefully, I will give people a good hour of TV for the next season or two.”

After a decade of playing the part of hunky doctor Alex, Justin admits that sometimes he finds it difficult in audition situations to play a different character.

Justin further stated: “Yeah, I’m a bit like Alex and he’s a bit like me, but the way we go about our world’s are different. I actually had an audition a while ago, and it felt like I was Alex trying to audition for the role and not Justin. You do wear it as a glove.

“The whole character thing is questionable to me. In the end it’s all coming from you and your personality,”

The last season of Grey’s Anatomy saw Alex striking up a romance with Jo (Camilla Luddington), and RTÉ Ten were eager to find out if their romance will continue to blossom in the upcoming series.

When asked about Alex’s love-life, Justin said: “If anything, their relationship is going to blossom. This past year we’ve seen how they’ve worked off, off each other. In their relationship, you finally have a character that is similar to Alex – who’s come from a broken home, a person who has had to work through a lot of obstacles to become a doctor.

“They complement each other. They’re going to explore more of that. Jo being there to help him with his father, to push him and sort of make amends with him, that’s just setting an example of what’s to come in the future. Now that they live together, it will explore what it’s like for him to be domestic and who knows; maybe they’ll get married and have kids. Anything is possible.”

 
Sky Living airs the season 10 finale of Grey’s Anatomy tomorrow night (June 18), and the channel’s site has a video up where Justin talks a bit about Sandra Oh. You can check it out at Sky Living or watch the video below.
