On ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith Grey was first presented to us only a few years ago. We’ve seen the protagonist’s transformation from a wacky med student to a widowed mother of three throughout the course of the series.
Grey’s Anatomy is currently the longest-running primetime medical drama in television history. However, there have been whispers that the show’s extended run may be coming to an end.
For the first time since the end of her time as host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen has stated that she is ready to move on. What does this mean for the die-hards? Are there any plans for Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy? So far, here’s what we know.
What will Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy be about?
“The ever-expanding realm of contemporary medicine will be explored through the eyes of beloved returning and new characters” in Season 19, according to the network.
However, that generalization may be applied to every season of the show, so we can’t really know what to expect from this one. There are still a few seasons to go before we get to Season 19, which means that Season 18 has a good chance of keeping us on our toes.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 is expected to take place in a post-COVID world, like Season 18 of the popular medical drama. A year after focusing on the coronavirus pandemic, Grey’s Anatomy has decided to take a break from reality and air an episode with a disclaimer reading.
“This season, Grey’s Anatomy portrays a fictional, post-pandemic society which embodies our dreams for the future.” In the real world, the pandemic continues to ravage the medical community.”
Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 Cast
Pompeo and Wilson will join James Pickens Jr., an original cast member, on the Season 19 cast list, which has not yet been released (Richard Webber). Actors who may return include Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt), Kim Raver (Teddy Altman), Caterina Scorsone (Amelia Shepherd), and Kelly McCreary (Maggie Pierce), as well as Atticus “Link” Lincoln, Anthony Hill, and Scott Speedman (Nick Marsh).
Due to Debbie Allen’s disease, the fate of her character, Catherine Fox (Catherine Fox), is undetermined for the rest of the season.
Both Skylar Astin and Rome Flynn were cast as recurring characters in Season 18. So Help Me Todd, a new CBS legal drama, will air in the same time slot as Grey’s Anatomy in the autumn, which means Flynn’s future as Winston’s brother is in doubt.
In addition, Greg Tarzan Davis’ future on the show is also in doubt when Bailey suggested that Jordan Wright returns to the state of Minnesota.
Also returning for Season 18 were: E.R. Fightmaster (Kai Bartley), Abigail Spencer, Lynn Chen, Alex Landi, Peter Gallagher, David Hamilton, Juicy Elliott, Melissa DuPrey, Melissa DuPrey, Zaiver Sinnett (Zander Perez), Jason George, Carina DeLuca, and the show’s original star, BokHee An. Also returning for Season 18 was: (Nurse BokHee).
Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 Release Date
Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy will premiere in the fall of 7 October 2022, ABC has announced. It’s unclear when the show will air, but Bustle reports that it generally airs between the middle and end of September.
The upcoming season will “examine the ever-expanding world of contemporary medicine through the perspective of beloved returning and new characters,” according to a Deadline report from earlier this year.
On Thursday, May 26, at 9 p.m. EST, ABC will air the season 18 finale of Grey’s Anatomy.
