Just what the doctor ordered

Can Meredith and Derek find love again? (SUPPLIED)

By Bindu Rai

Television's hottest doctors will be doing the rounds starting Wednesday when Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice return with new seasons on Showseries.

Grey's ended dramatically last season (spoiler alert) when Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) left Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) at the altar. But what devastated fans was the break-up between Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek 'McDreamy' Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey).

In season five, Meredith and Derek now face the highs and lows of their doomed relationship, especially with a certain Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) – Meredith's half-sister and Seattle Grace Hospital's hot new intern – in the mix.

George O'Malley (TR Knight), meanwhile, is cosying up with Lexie too after a divorce with Callie (Sara Ramirez) and break-up with resident Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl).

But this drama is not limited to Seattle alone. Having left the hospital and a broken marriage with Derek, Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) is still looking for happiness in Los Angeles in the second season of Grey's spin-off, Private Practice.

Friendships are tested when Addison discovers Naomi (Audra McDonald) is concealing the practice's financial problems. Meanwhile, Violet (Amy Brenneman) tries to uncover Cooper's (Paul Adelstein) secret.
