After six episodes, Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 has already thrown us for a loop, with more twists, turns and sad moments than we could have reasonably imagined.
Despite the fact that the ABC medical drama is now on hiatus, viewers are curious about what will happen after the horrific winter finale episode. (Seems Meredith okay? Will everything be okay? Who will be the next person to show up on the beach?)
Due to the pandemic-related delays and the fact that Season 17 will be a shortened season, viewers will have to wait until March to find out what happens next.
What is the total number of episodes in Grey’s Anatomy Season 17?
Fans will have to wait 11 weeks to find out what happens to Meredith Gray while she’s being treated for COVID-19 infection, according to showrunner Krista Vernoff, who spoke to Deadline about the situation. It’s all due to the fact that season 17 has fewer episodes than previous seasons.
Instead of the typical 24 episodes, Grey’s Anatomy season 17 is said to consist of only 16 episodes, according to reports. In addition to season 1, which had nine episodes, this is the shortest running season in the show’s history.
Due to the delayed premiere date, 6 episodes aired ahead of the scheduled winter break, and due to the shorter episode count, the remaining episodes will air in March instead of the usual January window so the season can end in time for May’s final season airing. .
Despite the setbacks, Grey’s Anatomy viewers have a lot more to look forward to in Season 17
Even as Meredith continues her battle with COVID-19, she will regularly travel back to her idyllic Florida beach house. Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd will appear in a few more episodes, according to the show’s schedule. Vernoff has also hinted that even more former figures may show up on Meredith’s beach in the future, according to Entertainment Weekly.
So far, Derek and George O’Malley have appeared on the show. There are also appearances by Richard Webber and Miranda Bailey, who confirm that Meredith not only dreams about dead people, but also about living ones. Fans have a long wish list of characters they would love to see again, with Chyler Leigh’s Lexie Gray at the top of the list for obvious reasons.

Will the Season 17 Finale of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Be the Series’ Final Episode?
As things stand, the conclusion to Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 is still pending. Season 18 of the hit medical drama has not yet been renewed by ABC. Meanwhile, Vernoff hinted that the final episode could serve as both a season finale and a series finale, according to Variety. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the showrunner stated in March:
I’m working on a season and a finale that can serve as a season finale or a series finale, depending on how it’s structured. I am preparing for both options, which is difficult and not ideal. It’s not where I would like us to be right now. I have informed [ABC execs] I need to know what we’re making before I can start on the season finale.
Because there are some character arcs that will be changed in this game. Either there will be a satisfying conclusion, or I’ll include something that will give me a bit of a cliffhanger and a common thread for next season.
Meanwhile, Chandra Wilson (who plays Miranda Bailey) spoke on Live with Kelly and Ryan in late March and stated that the cast of Grey’s Anatomy is still unsure whether the program will return.
When asked about Grey’s Anatomy season 18, Wilson replied, “We’ll find out when ABC makes their announcement.” “And not even a split second before.”
