Credit: Twitter Photo: Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo on Grey's Anatomy Season 9

McDreamy (and his gorgeous head of hair) is taking over Twitter. Or at least, the part of Twitter that focused on Grey's Anatomy teases!

Yesterday afternoon, Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd) tweeted a photo with Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) during the table read for Grey’s Season 9, Episode 3. The costars are seated next to each other and both seem pretty happy to be back at work. It must be difficult to play one of television’s cutest couples.

We already know that Season 9, Episode 3 will be directed by Debbie Allen (Catherine Avery) and will take us back to present time at Seattle Grace. By that time, the halls will be missing a few doctors and a lot of, um, steam. But despite saying goodbye to Lexie (Chyler Leigh), Mark (Eric Dane) and maybe others, Derek and Meredith are both alive and hopefully staying in Seattle.

With the loss of family and friends and Derek’s hand injury, we just hope these smiling faces make their way onto the screen at some point this season.

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