Chris Carmack is returning to ABC.

Carmack is coming off a six-season stint on Nashville which concluded last week on CMT.

The music-infused drama originally aired on ABC for its first four seasons, but the network canceled it in 2016 after amid falling ratings.

Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew were let go from the venerable medical drama, with both exiting the series on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24

The most surprising thing was that Arizona and April got happy endings, and were not killed off in a season finale twist. 

It was a fresh way to take things, but Grey's Anatomy Season 14 served as a rare return to form for the series. 

For the most part, the storylines were fresh, exciting and well-acted. It's difficult to keep things original after fourteen years on the air.

The season also featured the return of Kim Raver as Dr. Teddy Altman. Despite Raver being a recurring player on the season, it was confirmed earlier this year that she would be a series regular once again effective this fall.
