We know what you’ve been thinking: It’s rough waiting out this summer without Grey’s Anatomy. We can only binge watch past seasons on Netflix so much before we need new ones. But ABC understands our plight, and while they can’t give us anything new yet — probably because it hasn’t been filmed — they have given us the first official trailer for Season 11.
And it’s adorable.
The lady responsible for our favorite show, Shonda Rhimes, is taking over Thursday nights, and now, we can sit down on the couch at 8 p.m. ET for Grey’s and enjoy three hours of Shondaland goodness for the rest of the night, including Scandal and Shonda’s newest invention, How to Get Away With Murder.
In the promo vid, we get a flashback to the beginning of the legendary relationship that is Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey), commemorating the show’s premiere on March 27, 2005 (has it really been that long?!) before sliding into shots of Scandal and Shonda’s new show. Thank God It’s Thursday, indeed.
Makes you want new episodes even more now, right? The worst. But hang in there — September isn’t too far off, and we do know a few things about Season 11 to keep us going. We can do this!
Are you looking forward to a Thursday full of Shondaland?
