Grey's Anatomy may have lost a few faces this past year, but there will be plenty of newbies roaming the halls when the medical drama returns this fall.
Newcomer Tessa Ferrer has scored a recurring role on the ABC drama's upcoming ninth season, TVLine reports.
It is unknown whether Ferrer will play a character based at Seattle Grace, or if she'll be tied to one of the new hospitals to be featured on the show this season when several longtime characters start their new gigs.
Grey's marks Ferrer's TV debut, where she joins new recurring guest stars Veronica Mars vet Tina Majorino, Friday Night Lights' Gaius Charles and True Blood's Camilla Luddington. Former series regulars Chyler Leigh and Kim Raver will not returning come fall, and Eric Dane is set to wrap his arc early in Season 9.
The new season of Grey's Anatomy premieres on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9/8c on ABC.
