The ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy is returning to the screen with some doctors kindling new romances and others shifting off-screen.

Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the show, says that the series will not be set in two different places as Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, attempts to reconcile the trials of a long-distance relationship with Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey).

In fact, Rhimes says the neurosurgeon may be spending more time off the screen than on it. Rhimes acknowledges that the show may need a greater male presence and says she is “bringing in some men,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
