  • I am so happy to see them all in their dark blue scrubs.
    And is it just me or does James Pickens Jr look younger each year?

    • It’s not you. It’s Photoshop.

  • I dont understand why Keppner is back and even less why she is back as an attending?

    Comment by somnio – October 8, 2012 11:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Because she is an attending. Remember she didn’t pass her exam to make her board certified.

      Comment by Helen Ferguson – October 8, 2012 01:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Hence why is she an attending. April didn’t pass her board. She shouldn’t be an attending.

        • An attending just has to complete residency. You can be an attending physician and NOT be board certified.

          • Maybe she took her boards again, just like George did with his residency exam in Season 4

  • Shouldn’t Arizona have been one of the sitting?

    • I had that same thought.

    • Look at the group picture… you can tell she is wearing the prosthetic in the picture, her footwear is two different colors.

      • You do realize that Arizona lost her leg but Jessica Capshaw did not. Also these are just publicity stills,

        Comment by Jan – October 11, 2012 12:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Yes, I do. Try not to be condescending to people. However, if you actually LOOK at her feet in the photo then you will see they actually have TWO DIFFERENT shoes on her — I assumed they did it to make it more authentic to what her character is dealing with.

  • They all look so nice. Great photos.

  • Sarah Drew looks gorgeous.

  • That makes me miss “Mark” aka Eric Dane even more :’(

  • Ellen Pompeo looks gorgeous! That smile is precious.

    Comment by Tia – October 8, 2012 11:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s weird, though, isn’t it?? Remember the Ep. when she meets Derek’s mom and her smile looks like Sheldon Cooper’s?

    • Meredith happy is kinda freaking me out…

      • me too. She looks really cute, but it feels weird.

  • thank goodness it looks like Jesse WIlliams got a haircut! love him, not digging the longer hair on the show though…

    Comment by Maggie – October 8, 2012 11:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Miss lexie and Mark… not so interested in the show without them.

    Comment by Lucía – October 8, 2012 11:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Every year their cast photos are exactly the same. They need a new creative director. Also, why does Arizona have two legs?

    Comment by popculturewithkyle – October 8, 2012 11:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Really? How about because they took these pictures over the summer and if they had been released showing Arizona with only one leg it would have given everything away. Or, how about the fact that with a prosthetic and long pants she wouldn’t look any different than before…

      • Folks, it’s a CAST PHOTO. Of the cast members. This is not the Seattle Grace staff yearbook portrait.

    • Um and look at her feet… you can tell the prosthetic is in the picture. And with Mark and Lexie missing — I can completely understand why they had to wait as long as they did… for those that simply watch the show and don’t stalk the internet… there is still some mystery

      Comment by H.Houston – October 9, 2012 10:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • you can not see a prosthetic in the picture she is was wearing dark scrub pants and dark shoes

        Comment by Jan – October 11, 2012 05:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Cute. I think Mer and April should’ve had their lab coats off as well – to break the picture up more.
    It’s weird not seeing Eric Dane there.
    My favorite cast pic is still the one where they’re all dressed up.

  • Finally the cast fit into the group picture lol. Looking forward for this season.

    Comment by Jessica – October 8, 2012 12:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What ? They didn’t really cut Jessica Capshaw leg ? ^^

    Comment by Ben – October 8, 2012 12:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • No!. Geez. They cut off Arizona’s leg. The character. Not JCap, the actress. There is a difference…and again, with a prosthetic and long pants you can hardly tell the difference anyways.

      Comment by Ana – October 8, 2012 12:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’m pretty sure Ben was joking…. lol

        Comment by Sarah – October 8, 2012 12:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Errrr… Yes, that was a (pretty bad) joke. I know the difference between an actor and a character. Otherwise, Elen Pompeo would have a pretty crappy life.

        • Take that for a taste of French humour.

          Comment by Ben – October 8, 2012 01:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This is a seriously good looking cast. And the diversity is pretty outstanding. James Pickens is looking very dapper. Patrick is dreamy as every. Sarah Drew is just so pretty. And Jesse’s eyes should be illegal. He’s just so hot. But he really needs to keep his hair short. I’m not liking the way he’s looking without his face hair and too much hair on his head.

    Comment by Ana – October 8, 2012 12:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I totally agree with all you said. Sarah Drew is very pretty and I want her hair, but I think Sara Ramirez needs to cut her hair again. I think she is much sexier with the shorter locks.

      Comment by elr – October 9, 2012 05:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Glad the pics are finally here. Ellen is so gorgeous. Patrick and Justin are too hot!!

    Comment by Lea – October 8, 2012 12:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Sarah DOES look amazing. Gosh. I really like the actress herself, even when her character is being annoying. I sure do miss Mark and Lexie, though. Not sure I can bring myself to watch without them.

    Comment by Lola – October 8, 2012 12:22 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • At least the cast fits into the shot. With less characters to include this season should be strong!

    Comment by Ryaneco – October 8, 2012 12:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Good to see Jesse Williams with the shorter hair and the facial scruff. Ellen Pompeo is adorable. Everyone looks great, but Sarah Drew definitely stands out. She’s gorgeous, and it’s absolutely true that she’s never looked better.

  • No Lexie makes this show pointless

    Comment by hello – October 8, 2012 01:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Great pics, just wish April would have left instead of Mark!

    Comment by rs – October 8, 2012 01:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I second that. Pointless character, and ruined Avery for me.

      Comment by Tia – October 8, 2012 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I Couldn’t of helped staring at Jessica Capshaws legs for notice of fake leg.

    Comment by Martin – October 8, 2012 02:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Of is not a substitution for the word have…. pet peeve of mine….

      Comment by Ashlee – October 9, 2012 01:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hm…. Why is April wearing navy scrubs? Other then that, LOVE IT!

    Comment by Isaac – October 8, 2012 03:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Is it me or the way that Ellen is standing makes her look pregnant!?

    Comment by linsie – October 8, 2012 03:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I said it in another article, it’s very cliché but Mar and Der should totaly have a boy named Mark Alexander Grey Sheperd (aka Mark Sheperd)

      Comment by Olivia – October 8, 2012 05:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • why is kepner in navy scrubs???? why are yang, karev, and avery not in coats in the group shot??? why does arizona have her leg???? Love the pics… just my internal questions….

    Comment by Mari – October 8, 2012 04:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • And yet, nobody commented on Cristina wearing blue scrubs….that means she’ll be back at SGMW, right?

    Comment by Olivia – October 8, 2012 05:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Those pictures are full of photoshop… And the picture of group is so dark, I expected a better photoshot this time. Dont like them, sorry.

    Comment by Amanda – October 8, 2012 05:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Im totally agree. Ellen’s face without wrinkles lmao I can’t with this joke. They look younger that the first season, besides every Grey’s cast photoshot is always the same, nothing new.

      Comment by Marcy – October 8, 2012 05:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ellen Pompeo is either really photoshopped or has had lots of Botox.

    Comment by Tracy – October 8, 2012 05:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Why are they in the basement? or possibly The Bronze from Buffy.

    Comment by Keenan – October 8, 2012 06:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ellen Pompeo looks stunning. really amazing. gorgeous. real doctor style photo. true lead picture. :)

    Comment by James – October 8, 2012 09:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Like the photo. Really miss Chyler and Eric. Chyler was always so CUTE in the group photo. Will miss them so much. Chandra Wilson looks so pretty love her Hair.

    Comment by Tiff – October 8, 2012 11:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Even though I will dearly miss Lexie and Sloan, this cast needed to be reduced. I remember thinking in an episode last season that there were just way too many characters. I just wish they would have gotten rid of Kepner.

    Comment by LAR – October 9, 2012 07:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This was taken during last season, if you look closely JCap is still pregnant. She was just about due when they filmed the season finale earlier this year. Plus Jessie’s hair is still short.

    Comment by April – October 9, 2012 07:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The group picture is too dark. Especially with the dark scrubs! Someone didn’t think that through. The individual pics look great though. I think Sandra Oh looks exceptionally good in her portrait.

    Comment by Lauren – October 9, 2012 09:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ellen P’s hair looks so much better like this, I literally stopped watching when it was always hanging in her face. Last season had me wandering back for curiosity’s sake. Jesse and Kevin are mega watt hot.

    Comment by Clover – October 9, 2012 10:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Well FINALLY new pictures for a new season of Grey’s! And look, they’re all in attending scrubs, aww!
    And yes, Ellen Pompeo looks beautiful.

  • More years pass more they feel younger
