Pompeo - who is an executive producer of the show - will take a reduced role in the new season and will be joined by a record number of series regulars including Alexis Floyd, Niko Terho, Midori Francis, Adelaide Kane, and Harry Shum Jr. Here’s how to watch the new season of Grey’s Anatomy and the full cast.
