Fall TV Preview

Grey's, Scandal and HTGAWM Casts Wine and Shine in New TGIT Promo

Thank God it’s (almost) Fall.

ABC’s signature TGIT lineup returns in just 23 days, and the network corralled the casts of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder to produce the most elaborate save the date card ever.

The above promo — which will make its official on-air debut Thursday, Sept. 3 — features practically every principal cast member from the three Shondaland smashes (where art thou, Jessica Capshaw?) in various states of revelry. Our favorite bit: Bellamy Young and Scott Foley lobbing their pinot noir at Olitz.

Press PLAY above to soak in all the TGIT exuberance, and then scroll through the gallery below to view nearly two dozen notable freeze frames!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Ellen Pompeo looks amazing!

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    Wonder if The Catch should take over the 10 pm Thursday night time slot come mid-season after HTGAWM wraps up its second season.

  3. Leah says:

    Woah, damn Ellen looks so fierce and fabulous. That new haircut is wow!
    Can’t wait to have Meredith back on my screen.

  4. Just one thing says:

    Well played, ABC. It’s been a while since they’ve done something fun that involves so many of their actors.
    .
    Now, one that features actors from other shows without Muppets would be cool, too. (And I love the Muppets.)

  5. deenabraun says:

    Cuter than cute. Great to see everyone happy. Can hardly wait for Scandal.

  6. C says:

    Very fun promo! And yes, Ellen Pompeo is looking fabulous.

  7. Alana says:

    is caterina missing from the Greys cast as well?

  8. Tia says:

    ELLEN!! I keep watching the promo just to see her and lovely pics. :)

    Tvline any chance you’ll interview Ellen before season 12 starts? thanks!

  9. Claire says:

    And still the wait to see Jessica Capshaw in a promo continues. Le sigh.

  10. Shar says:

    Jake & Mellie?? hmm might be interesting revenge wise and would keep Jake in the game.

  11. Kailani says:

    I noticed in this week’s edition of People Magazine that Kerry Washington said the 1st episode is amazing but that a part of it was going to infuriate some fans. Or words to that effect. Good Lord, what might THAT mean?!

  12. KAREN says:

    Aww Ellen looks amazing, the soul of Greys 👍

  13. PL says:

    Makes me wonder, are we going to see individual promos for each show? They’re usually out around the end of August and I haven’t seen any for Grey’s, Scandal, or HTGAWM.

  14. Keri says:

    Yes, yes, yes to Alex and Jo. Ellen and Sara look fantastic. Fun promo all around. Can’t wait for #TGIT to start up again.

  15. Tom says:

    Shonda writes the same stories over and over again since season 5… Waiting Grey’s Anatomy to end.

  16. brandydanforth81 says:

    Can’t wait for HTWAWM,& maybe Scandal.Good promo.

  17. Samantha says:

    Be still my heart! Justin Chambers is so hot and sexy in this! I need Grey’s back on my screen now.

  18. betsym says:

    Totally reminded me of the old Desperate Housewives promos. Go ABC. Throwin’ it back.

  19. Allie says:

    Once again… JESSICA CAPSHAW MIA. #TheRealMVP.

  20. Sara says:

    I loved Justin and Camilla in this, after the writers having ignored Alex and Jo for one season it’s great to see them in the promo.

  21. Eric7740 says:

    #Ican’twait!!! TGIT!!!

  22. Erin B says:

    I thought Jake left?

    • bluefairy says:

      Jake left Olivia, putting an end to their pretend-relationship. But no one said the actor left the show. I hope they find something else for Jake to do (for instance, become a gladiator at OPA), because Scott Foley is adorable.

      • Margaret j watson says:

        Adorable he is but a fixture at OPA, no. Jake will never be over the fake, so he would be better off doing spy or murdering stuff at B6 something or the other.

  23. Matt C. says:

    Can’t wait for TGIT nights to start again! I’m in the process of getting caught up on Grey’s on Netflix so I’m hoping to be done by Sept 24th!

  24. Whatevah says:

    what a great promo!

  25. Gerri says:

    TGIT HTGAWM is the only one of these I watch, but I look forward to it.

  26. Favorite night of the week. When I have exams on Friday I cry because I have to miss Scandal and Grey’s!!

  27. Angel says:

    Kerry Washington is GORGEOUS! Slay queen slay.

  28. Rosemary says:

    Tony and Kerry look so cute dancing together. So does Bellamy & Scott, the way they look before the through the drink. Love Tony & Kerry ( Olivia and Fitz) YES!!

  29. Fitz and Olivia are adorable. Just absorbs all over the way they were dancing. Mellie and Jake move on and find love elsewhere. This is OLitz time.

  30. Aly Lady says:

    Great promo. Scandal is my fave and it’s good to see Kerry and Tony having fun dancing. S5 here we come.

  31. Nancy says:

    Sorry but NOTHING will get me to watch Grey’s ever again.

  32. Jules says:

    Can’t wait for HTGAWM… Mellie & Jake up to no good, ‘m sure. Can’t wait

  33. Cdeno says:

    Everyone looks amazing. It is interesting that. The entire cast of Scandal and HTGAWM were in the promo but only about 1/3 of the Greys’s cast. If this isn’t a hint about who will be featured/ the focus of season 12 of Greys’, then I would be very shocked.

  34. C.A. Neal says:

    If Arizona & Callie don’t get back together, I’m finished with “Grey’s Anatomy.”

  35. Steven says:

    There was not nearly enough Jack Falahee.

  36. Margo says:

    Fun promo :D So ready for TGIT and Fall TV in general!

  37. Megg says:

    Wait, is that Harrison towards the end?

  38. TrudiV says:

    As long as only Mellie and Jake’s fans are ticked off – I’m good

  39. EM says:

    Fun and light promo! That is what we watched for in the first place. Let the patients in Greys have the drama and the clients in the other two shows have the drama.

  40. Annie says:

    All of the ABC promos have been great.

  41. Jean says:

    lm so happy Fitz and Liv are back together just hope Shonda don’t mess it up. She has cause a lot of pain to us Olitz fans and finally we can see some amazing Olitz moments.
