Fan-favourite Capshaw, who played paediatric attending Dr Arizona Robbins for seasons 5-14, was written out of the show back in 2018, while Dr Nico Kim actor Landi has been absent from the show since 2022.
The Hollywood Reporter additionally confirmed Dead to Me actress Natalie Morales and Freddy Miyares (of When They See Us fame) will feature as guest-stars in future episodes as paediatric surgeon Monica Beltran and "likeable" patient Dorian respectively.
Landi previously teased his show return in January via Instagram, sharing a photo of him on set with his Nico Kim name-badge. "SEASON 20 @greysabc," read the caption.
Capshaw is yet to publicly acknowledge her return. The actress was originally let go from Grey's Anatomy for "creative reasons" alongside Dr April Kepner actress Sarah Drew.
Showrunner Shonda Rhimes addressed the surprise axing in a statement on social media at the time. "It's always hard for me to say goodbye to any of my characters," she wrote. "Both Arizona Robbins and April Kepner are not only beloved but iconic – both the LGBTQ and devout Christian communities are underrepresented on TV.
"I will be forever grateful to both Jessica and Sarah for bringing these characters to life with such vibrant performance and for inspiring women around the globe. They will always be a part of our Shondaland family."
Season 20 also marks the grand return of Ellen Pompeo as Dr Meredith Grey, who decided to take a break in 2023.
"We have to let her go and do some other things, but she's still our queen. She's still our number 1 on the call sheet."
