Greys Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes let her spoiler guard down Tuesday while speaking with reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, divulging a number of teases about Season 12 of the ABC drama. Here are the standout scoops: * The new season of Grey’s takes on “a much lighter tone” in the wake of Derek’s death, Rhimes shared. “Meredith is single and she is living this life that she’s never thought she’d be living again. She’s living in a house with her sisters. She’s surrounded by women who are dating and having a whole life and she’s not interested in all that. [Meredith is] starting to wonder is there a second life here or are your best years behind you? I guess the theme [of Season 12] is rebirth. That evolution for that character is beautiful.” Read more at the source: http://tvline.com/2015/08/04/greys-anatomy-spoilers-callie-arizona-season-12/
