The new season of Grey’s Anatomy will be one ripped directly from the headlines.
COVID-19 will be the main focus as it relates to the doctors and patients on the show.
Executive producer Krista Vernoff said during a panel discussion, “There’s no way to be a long-running medical show and not do the medical story of our lifetimes.”
The writers for Grey’s are talking to real doctors about their experiences during the pandemic. The hope is to be able to translate those stories into the show. Shooting for the new season has yet to begin.
