But a key character was absent subscribers: Ellis Gray, the mother of Meredith, who died of Alzheimer’s in episode 17 of season 3. According to information from the American site Deadline, Kate Burton, who plays the famous surgeon, is expected to reprise her role in several episodes of season 18.
Its first appearance will also be from the first episode, which will be broadcast across the Atlantic on September 30. With the streak on the beach coming to an end when Meredith woke up at the end of last season, we don’t yet know how Ellis Gray will be introduced to the show.

Created and produced by Shonda Rhimes, it has been rumored for many months that Season 18 may be the last. And the return of the character of Ellis Gray could well reinforce these hallway noises …
