No more walks on the beach, we hope! Even for a medical soap that thrives on tears, angst and broken hearts, last season was a gut punch: The show's beloved mainstay, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), spent months in a COVIDrelated coma.
As last season's top new drama returns, undercover vigilante Robyn McCall (Queen Latifah) teams with the cop who once wanted to expose her. Det. Marcus Dante (Tory Kittles) asks the motorcycle-riding badass to help him catch bank robbers who killed police officers-an investigation that will lead to top levels of U.S. intelligence and politics. Showrunners Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe tell us more.
