The first photo from season 16 of Grey's Anatomy is here - and hints at a big reunion

Ooooh, this is going to be good.

Production on Grey's Anatomy's season 16 is officially underway - and we've already got our first look at the set.

Giacomo Gianniotti, who plays Dr. Andrew DeLuca, to share a behind-the-scenes photo with Ellen Pompeo which seems to hint at a much happier time for their two characters.

But then again, it would hard for it to get any worse than one of them being behind bars.

The photo shows Pompeo seemingly wearing a pair of pyjamas, with Gianniotti wearing scrubs - which seems to resolve some of last season's cliffhanger, at least.

Alongside the photo, the actor wrote:

"First day back at work with this beauty! @ellenpompeo.

"Season 16 of @greysabc here we go! #greysanatomy #greysisbackbaby #pajamadayeveryday #icecreamforbreakfast."

It comes as Grey's Anatomy boss Krista Vernoff revealed what's next for DeLuca after that massive cliffhanger.

The end of season 15 saw DeLuca step in and try to take the fall for Dr. Meredith Grey, after she committed insurance fraud to help a father and daughter seeking asylum - and saved the daughter's life.

The season finale ends with DeLuca and Meredith intending to come clean about what really happened.

However, by the end of it all, both of the characters' fates are a bit up in the air.

Vernoff pointed out to TVLine that "we have painted ourselves into a very real corner" with DeLuca, particularly as he had claimed it was him - and not Meredith - who committed the insurance fraud.

“It’s safe to say [that getting him out of that corner] is going to be complicated," she added.
