Grey's Anatomy Season 12 Trailer Promises 'Everything Has Changed'

Let the sun shine indeed!

Grey’s Anatomy released its Season 12 trailer Thursday morning and — as heralded by both series creator Shonda Rhimes and the show’s recently revealed key art — the upcoming episodes will find Meredith in a much “lighter” place than where we left her.

The 21-second promo finds Mer waking up — alone (sniff) — and acknowledging that “everything has changed.” But that solemn moment is surrounded by high-energy shots of the rest of the Grey’s ensemble engaging in enthusiastic high fives and wacky home demolition work. Oh, and someone gets socked in the face.

Grey’s Anatomy returns on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 8/7c (ABC). Until then, press PLAY on the video above to watch your favorite docs do their thing, then hit the comments with your quick take on what’s ahead.
