ABC’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ will no longer be filming the rest of season 16 due to the severity of COVID-19’s impact on the United States. Although initially supposed to be a 25-episode season, the series unintentionally wrapped at its 21st episode, which will premiere on April 9th.
The renewal for season 17 of the hit medical dramatic show was announced several months ago. It is presumed that all television and film sets, including ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, will return to production in July, assuming that the coronavirus pandemic is handled quickly by America.
Several other productions were also required to halt their remaining work. As of now, networks and studios are struggling with their plans for the future, hoping that they will get back to work as soon as possible.
