Carmack and Germann  joined the show this season as Dr. Atticus Lincoln (aka “Link”) and Dr. Thomas Koracick, respectively. 

Borelli joined in a recurring capacity during Grey's Anatomy Season 14, but his role has gradually become more prominent. 

ABC confirmed Grey's Anatomy would remain on the air until 2021 earlier today, meaning that leading lady, Ellen Pompeo likely extended her contract beyond 2020.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
