Grey's Anatomy's Season 15 Theme Will Make You Miss MerDer

Season 15 of Grey's Anatomy will be giving us a ton of surprises, but one thing for sure is it will have a cute theme!

Grey's Anatomy's Season 15 Theme Announced

We are pleasantly surprised to learn that the future of Grey's Anatomy will have a little bit of love in store for everyone. Season 14 ending with Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and Jo Wilson's (Camilla Luddington) wedding seems to have a more lighthearted tone for the continuation of Grey's. This is definitely something new for fans, I mean, we're used to having our hearts completely ripped from our chests when a season ends.

In fact, this shift has an entire theme associated with it. According to TVLine, season 15 can be summed up with the theme "The Season of Love". Grey's Anatomy seems to be founded on epic love stories, starting with that of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey). Oh, how we miss them. Of course, a love themed season of Grey's Anatomy just doesn't sound right without our beloved MerDer.

Krista Vernoff's Return Means Change

This tonal shift seems to have accompanied Krista Vernoff's return to Grey's Anatomy in season 14. Vernoff served as head writer and executive producer for the first seven seasons of the show, and fans seem to be happy she's back. The wedding of Alex and Jo is definitely the work of Vernoff, and we can't thank her enough!

We can surely expect that romance will pop up unexpectedly in the lives of some of our other favorite characters on Grey's in the new season. We're hoping it's finally time for Meredith to get involved in something serious again. She's obviously doing amazing on her own-- she's Meredith Grey, but we would love to see some romance to spice up her life. Even Camilla Luddington agrees that it's time for Meredith to find a new man.

Will Meredith Be Able To Love Again?

Meredith and Derek have given us some of the best moments in the history of Grey's, it's hard to imagine that anything can compare. We miss everything about MerDer, like the Post-it Note vows and even the hard parts. Meredith always thinks of Derek as her one true love, so we have to consider her feelings on all of this before we get too excited.

Just because we want to see Meredith with a new man, it doesn't mean we miss Derek any less! Who can blame us for wanting to see Meredith fall in love again? Plus, Meredith might be totally exempt from this love theme that Grey's is deciding to take on for season 15. There's plenty of other opportunities for new love in the hospital that don't involve her. We're only hoping to see it pertain to Meredith, but there's been no confirmation that it will.

On September 27, "The Season of Love" will finally premiere on ABC. At this point, we can only follow clues on what it might entail. One thing we're beyond excited for is the return to romance in the hospital. We've been through enough pain and suffering, and so have the doctors. If we're lucky enough, we'll see Meredith back on her game. September can't come fast enough!
