Sarah Drew will become a series regular on GREY’S ANATOMY when the show kicks off its seventh season this fall according to Michael Ausiello. ABC executives have confirmed that Drew’s contract begins at the start of the seventh season and was finalized earlier this week.

Drew most recently starred in the TV series Everwood before joining the cast of Grey’s Anatomy as a recurring character. Drew plays the role of Dr. April Kepner who joined Seattle Grace Hospital from Mercy West and has an almost over the top fascination with Derek Shepherd.

Drew’s character received a rather chilly reception, both in the show and from fans, but that hasn’t stopped the network from adding her to the regular cast.
