Season 17 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ was cut short because of Covid-19, and the next season will be Covid-free. Now, the show has been extended to an additional season. Hulu Originals & ABC President said, “Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy have done an incredible job of honoring real-life heroes by giving audiences an unflinching look at one of the biggest medical stories of our time.” The president continued, “Krista [Vernoff] and her team of writers have continued to deliver the compelling and compassionate storytelling that is a hallmark of these shows, and created some of the year’s most-talked-about moments in television. We’re so grateful to our talented casts and crews for their extraordinary work that connects with viewers everywhere, and we look forward to sharing even more defining moments with our fans next season.”
Patrick Dempsey discussed his return to Season 17, “The intention was to really give people some hope because they are such an iconic couple. We’ve lost so many people this year, the thought that we’d have angels hovering around us taking care of us is a good message to send out in such a bleak world that we’re living in. So for all of us, it was a beautiful ending to this story. I’m so grateful that I did it and happy that the fans really loved it.” This next season will be Covid-free.
Richard Flood spoke on the new season by saying, “This season, we’re dealing with an alternate universe where COVID has been dealt with and is now gone. I find a huge amount of freedom not having to wear masks in scenes. Just as an actor, being able to really interact with one another feels easier.”
