Exclusive: Grey's Anatomy's New Interns Are Sticking Around -- But for How Long?

Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Spoilers -- CastGrey’s Anatomy is giving its new crop of interns a nice vote of confidence heading into next season.

The soap’s boss, Shonda Rhimes, has added a series regular option to the contracts of recurring players Jerrika Hinton (Stephanie), Gaius Charles (Shane) and Tessa Ferrer (Leah). Fellow newbie Camilla Luddington (Jo) already had such a clause in her deal, while the fate of Tina Majorino (Heather) is complicated by her role in the TNT pilot Legends. If that series fails to snag a series order, Majorino likely will return to Grey’s.

While the legal move doesn’t ensure the actors will be series regulars in Season 10, it does suggest that Rhimes is seriously considering such a possibility. At the very least, the group will stick around through the end of the current Season 9.

Formal pickup letters go out in June.

This begs the question: Of the five newbies, which ones would you like to see join the full-time ranks next season? Sound off below!
