When Grey's Anatomy announced that they were heading back into production, they confirmed that this upcoming season they would be taking on COVID-19. ABC released their first look at the season 17 premiere which will be an extended cross over event with Station 19 on Thursday November 12th.
According to Grey's showrunner Krista Vernoff:
"It's going to take place a little bit beyond where we left off with the last season," Gianniotti said while adding that he had not received any season 17 scripts at the time. "We might have some flashbacks. We might have some things where we're referencing last season, just to give us some context leading up. But we are going to have a little leap when we start this season in terms of time. We're not picking up right where we left off."
