Grey's Anatomy Season 9 may be the "season of romance," but it sounds like we have some good old fashioned bromance to look forward to as well.

TVLine recently teased that Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and Owen's (Kevin McKidd) friendship will continue to grow this season.

"Owen and Derek definitely start to lean on each other more," Kevin McKidd teased, adding that "Guys, being guys, are not great at talking all the time ... but [Owen and Derek] do have some moments that they share where they are both at in a very real way.”

We know that Derek will be struggling with life after his hand injury, and Cristina (Sandra Oh) really is going to leave Seattle for a bit, so we imagine Derek and Owen will both have plenty of problems to deal with. We're glad they have each other to help them through.

Are you looking forward to more of this friendship?

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
