How Many Episodes Of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Are Left? Coronavirus Halted Season 16 Production – Bustle

Grey's Anatomy
Like many TV productions right now, Grey's Anatomy's filming schedule has also been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. On March 12, Deadline reported that the medical show had suspended production "out of an abundance of caution, " with just 21 of the 25 Grey's Anatomy Season 16 episodes filmed. Initially, that shutdown was supposed to be for two weeks, but with the pandemic escalating, there's no sign of a return to normalcy for TV shows. A rep for the show tells Bustle that the next three Grey's Anatomy episodes will air as scheduled on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET. That takes the series up to the 21 episodes it completed before production was suspended. It's unclear when or if the remaining four episodes will be filmed and released. .


Some affected shows have simply decided to cut their seasons short. According to TV Line, the CBS show FBI will come to an end on March 31, three episodes shy of its original season order. Fox's medical show The Resident comes to a close on April 7, also three episodes short of its Season 3 order. Even if production can start back up again soon on Grey's Anatomy, they may not have the necessary props to use in filming. Deadline reported that Grey's donated its back-stock of medical equipment like gloves and gowns to local healthcare workers to aid in the fight against coronavirus. Executive producer Krista Vernoff said, "We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home." Richard Cartwright/ABC No decision has been made as to whether Grey's will simply cut Season 16 short or eventually get those remaining episodes out. .
