Ellen Pompeo in 'Greys Anatomy'

Just when you think the Grey's Anatomy doctors have left for good...


The Grey's Anatomy cast has officially resumed filming after COVID-19 forced the crew to have a short hiatus on the show's 16th season.

Ellen Pompeo, who plays the infamous character Meredith Grey, teased the news on Instagram Tuesday of her in scrubs - and even a mask to express support of all the healthcare workers that have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Although they left season 16 with only four episodes to film, the cast will be jumping ahead to start the 17th season instead. However, in order to make the story line clearer, there will be a reset in the beginning - according to costar Krista Vernoff, who plays Shonda Rhimes. Giacomo Giannioti, also known as Dr. Andrew DeLuca in the show, stated:

"It's going to take place a little beyond where we left off with the last season. 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." -

The show will also incorporate the coronavirus pandemic into the plot. In terms of filming during real COVID times, cast and crew will be tested several times and follow social distancing protocols throughout the whole process as well.

The new season is set to be released on ABC later this fall - so don't forget to mark your calendars for a season full of drama.
