Today ABC unveiled for the first time their Grey’s Anatomy season 18 poster, and this is one that is definitely a celebration.
In what way are we talking about here? Basically, the folks at the network deciding to make something fun that put the spotlight on three people essential to the series: Ellen Pompeo, James Pickens Jr., and Chandra Wilson. This is the first time in years that someone other than Ellen is featured in the poster, and we feel like this is a not-so-subtle nod to the few remaining original cast members. They’ve been playing these people for almost two decades!

It’s very rare that you see actors opt to take on roles for so long, especially when you consider that the TV industry is inherently nomadic. Actors often want to move on to other roles and often, they have no choice. We know that there may be a financial incentive to stay with Grey’s Anatomy, but we think these actors also realize that there is something more to it here. This show serves as inspiration for a lot of people to pursue careers in medicine; for others, it’s merely a form of comfort at the end of a long time. If you’re getting into acting to make people feel good, this show is a fantastic venue for that.
Remember that Grey’s Anatomy season 18, featuring the three actors above, will be back on ABC come Thursday, September 30.
