Former How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor star will take Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) on a blind date in Thursday's episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Deadline has confirmed.

Radnor will guest star in the October 11 episode as a mystery man on a blind date with Meredith. It remains to be seen if sparks will fly or if this will be the first of many awful dates Meredith has to go on to find her next suitable relationship partner, but showrunner Krista Vernoff did tell TV Guide we would be seeing Meredith going on multiple dates this season. Noting that her romance with Derek was "pretty epic", Vernoff said there is a message "to all of the men and women who have loved and lost, whether they've lost to circumstance or to death, yes, to love again is possible".

In the 45-second sneak peek of Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy, Meredith, 48, sparked curiosity among her colleagues as she stood in her living room nicely dressed in a pink trench coat, white blouse and black trousers. Meredith stands in the lounge wearing a tan-colored trench coat and a white blouse as her sister-in-law Dr. Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) walks in and asks, "What happened?"

Radnor is best known for his role of Ted Mosby on HIMYM from 2005 to 2014, most recently starred in NBC's Rise this year before it was canceled after one season. Are you going to a funeral?'

"What's wrong with you?"

Dr. Maggie Pierce, played by Kelly McCreay, 37, hit the nail on the head, saying: 'Oh my god, you have a date'.

Meredith then revealed that she had never met her lunch date ... and didn't even know what he looked like.
