Grey’s Anatomy, the medical drama, has been fascinating us for 17 years. Since the very first episode, when Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd (McDreamy) first appeared on television, the programme has been full of dramatic twists and turns that keep viewers coming back season after season.
In this article, we will discuss the upcoming 18th season of Grey’s Anatomy and provide all the information you need to tune in, including a list of regulars and where to find them online. Information about season 17, as well as links to all 17 prior seasons of Grey’s Anatomy and updates on season 19, can be found down below.
The 18th Season of Grey’s Anatomy Debuted in September.
The COVID-19 epidemic delayed the debut of various television series in 2018, but everything seems to be on schedule for the next year of 2021. Grey’s Anatomy will return to its usual Thursday time slot on September 30 at 9pm ET/PT, as revealed by ABC.
The Story of Season 17 Was Intended to Serve as the Series Conclusion.
When you consider how long season 18’s fate was in doubt, you can see why this is a brilliant idea. In March, new Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff told the Hollywood Reporter that the tale could go any way after Shonda Rhimes’ departure. When asked about the end of the series, Vernoff remarked, “I’m designing a season and finale that might operate as either a season finale or a series finale.” Having to prepare for both is challenging and undesirable. This is not the place I had hoped to be in.
You can count on us to feel emotional even if we have advanced warning of what’s to come, NGL.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Will Consist of How Many Episodes?
Season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy has 20 episodes, making it shorter than some prior seasons but not the fewest.
Season 17 of Grey’s Anatomy was one of the shortest in the show’s history, with just the first season and the fourth season having fewer episodes.
There were nine episodes in the first season and seventeen in the fourth season, while every other season had at least twenty. There are currently more than 360 episodes spanning seasons one through seventeen. The pinnacle of binge-watching experiences.
What Can Viewers of Grey’s Anatomy Expect to See in the Upcoming 18th Season?
Season 17 of Grey’s Anatomy, resuming up where Season 16 left off, centred on the Covid-19 epidemic and how the staff and patients at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital dealt with the outbreak, coupled with the ongoing drama of their daily lives.
From the looks of the trailer, there will be a huge return in Season 18, and many doubts raised in Season 17 will be resolved.
Both Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and Megan Hunt (Abigail Spencer) will be returning for season 18 after the actresses announced their return on Instagram (see below).
With the departure of a few key characters in Season 17, we also know that something will be missing. After moving to Boston to work at the Catherine Fox Foundation, neither Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) nor Tom Koracick (Greg Germann) are now on the programme. Neither is DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), of course.

Is Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy in the Works, and if So, When Can We Expect It to Premiere?
The website subsequently published Davis’s explanation of the situation, which read: “A few things I said in a previous interview need some explaining. At this moment, there are no plans to create a spinoff of Grey’s Anatomy. With the wonderful Ellen Pompeo leading our ensemble and co-executive producing, we are putting in all of our efforts into making Season 18. Our brilliant showrunner, Krista Vernoff, is at the helm. For me, as the head of ABC Signature, it was just important to express my enthusiasm and praise for Shonda’s work.”
