About Grey’s Anatomy Season 17
There are rumors afloat that the popular television drama Grey’s Anatomy will be coming back for the seventeenth time. The news comes as a blessing to the strong fanbase of Grey’s Anatomy, which has only expanded throughout the sixteen seasons of the show.
The last season that aired on television had to be cut short by four episodes as the pandemic hindered their filming. Therefore, the sixteenth season did not get a proper closure, leaving all the more room for the show to be renewed.
The Plot of Grey’s Anatomy Season 17:
The American drama revolves around Dr. Meredith Grey, a medical intern at Seattle Grace Hospital, turned chief general surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. The show chronicles the ups and downs of medical professionals working with her in the hospital.
Ellen Pompeo plays Grey. The cast also consists of Sandra Oh, Katherine Heigl, Justin Chambers T R Knight, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr, Isaiah Washington, and Patrick Dempsey. The sixteenth season started with an ensemble cast of fourteen actors along with the original four main characters- Meredith, Alex Karev, Miranda Beiley, and Richard Webber.
Currently being produced by ABC studios, it is the longest-running primetime scripted show on television. The show creators had planned to deliver a promising finale for the sixteenth season, which would be a cross-over episode with Station 19. It would have involved a bomb explosion threat and the death of one of the major characters. With the pandemic restrictions, the storyline had to be changed and the season ended abruptly, leaving the fans asking for more of the show.
