You can’t very well have a hit medical television show, without addressing the elephant in the room that has paralyzed the world for the last 4 months.
In the upcoming 17th season of Grey’s Anatomy, they will be dealing with the tough subject of the epidemic that is the coronavirus.
Grey’s Anatomy is known for always consulting real doctors when it comes to the accuracy of their programs, and it isn’t going to be any different in this case.
Every year, we have doctors come and tell us their stories, and usually they’re telling their funniest or craziest stories. This year, it has felt more like therapy. The doctors come in and we’re the first people they’re talking to about these types of experiences they’re having.Krista Vernoff, Executive Producer for Grey’s Anatomy
They are literally shaking and trying not to cry, they’re pale, and they’re talking about it as war — a war that they were not trained for. And that’s been one of our big conversations about Owen, is that he’s actually trained for this in a way that most of the other doctors aren’t.Krista Vernoff, Executive Producer for Grey’s Anatomy
Grey’s hasn’t actually started filming season 17 yet (OMG, can you believe it has been that long?!?), as obviously everything has shut down and been pushed back, because of COVID-19.
But, that hasn’t stopped them from researching the different parts and aspects of this scary, horrible virus.
They have to figure out a way to keep that Grey’s Anatomy vibe, while dealing with the awful stories of the virus, and I have no doubt they are going to figure out exactly how to do that.
