The second half of Grey’s Anatomy, which won’t premiere until the end of January, will be introducing a new character, Travis.
“Travis, a male-to-female transgender person will begin to make the rounds at Grey Sloan Memorial [starting in January],” the website said.
Details of the character, including who will be playing Travis, have been kept extremely under wraps.
Shonda Rhimes, executive producer, said her writers “are not afraid of controversy.” The show has put a major focus on sexuality, with Dr. Callie Torres realizing her bisexuality and Dr. Arizona Robbins as one of the first openly lesbian characters on primetime television.
Additional details about the show aren’t out yet, but a few upcoming episode titles include: “The Bed’s Too Big Without You” and “The Great Pretender.”
Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC Thursday, January 29 at 7/8 p.m. central.
