Subscribe To Grey's Anatomy Season 16: Jake Borelli Wants More Scenes With These Co-Stars Updates
Spoilers ahead from the Grey's Anatomy Season 15 finale.
Grey's Anatomy just had its uber-dramatic Season 15 finale, and fans are ready for more. Before the May 16 finale aired, ABC already renewed the show for at least two more seasons. Jake Borelli, who plays Dr. Levi "Glasses" Schmitt, was revealed to be one of three recurring stars bumped up to series regular status for Season 16. Unlike many characters, Levi had a happy ending to Season 15, reconnecting with his boyfriend Nico Kim (Alex Landi) and even coming out to his mom.
CinemaBlend asked Jake Borelli to name his favorite co-star to work with so far -- after starting on the show in Season 14 and amping up his role in Season 15 -- and which co-stars he wants more scenes with in Season 16. His answer would please Omelia fans:
As we all should. Jake Borelli's Dr. Levi Schmitt got to spend a lot of time with Kevin McKidd's Dr. Owen Hunt in the final two episodes of Season 15, including the penultimate "Drawn to the Blood," which was directed by McKidd himself. Borelli already told me about the great times they had filming that scene, which carried over into the "intense" season finale.
Jake Borelli said there had been some talks about Levi becoming a series regular character in Season 16, and he got the official word when Season 16 was picked up. But ABC announcing two seasons at once? He didn't see that coming.
As for what happens next for Levi, Jake Borelli doesn't really know yet. Showrunner Krista Vernoff said in post-finale interviews that Nico actor Alex Landi would be a recurring actor for them in Season 16, so the actor's new Netflix show shouldn't push him off screen after all. That's good news for Levi, too, since it suggests he and Nico will continue building their relationship.
Jake Borelli said he doesn't know exactly when they'll be back to film Season 16, but he'll be ready when that call comes in.
The Grey's Anatomy Season 15 finale left a lot of threads dangling -- from three main characters fired, to Meredith possibly heading to jail, to Jo going to the psych ward, to Jackson literally going missing. There's a lot to worry and speculate about during the hiatus. If Grey's Anatomy Season 16 sticks to the usual schedule, it should start filming this summer for a September premiere on ABC. Stay tuned for an exact premiere date.
