We are headed into season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s officially my longest relationship, and I oddly feel quite proud admitting that fact. From declarations of love to tragic deaths, Shonda Rhimes has proven that she knows how to combine a hard-hitting medical drama with a little bit of comedy and a whole lot of romance.

Speaking of romance, who do I need to beg to bring back Scott Speedman as a series regular? Surely Dr. Marsh needs Dr. Grey to check on his kidney, right? And perhaps hang around Grey Sloane Memorial for a few years to do his own surgeries? I’d sign that petition. All day. Moving on.

Thanks to a few weddings and a shocking pregnancy announcement during last season’s finale, this season looks to be as juicy as ever. Here’s everything you need to know before the two-hour premiere on Sept. 27:

Amelia and Owen

Remember Amelia’s huge brain tumor? The one she had for ten years that may have caused all of her erratic behavior? It was thankfully cut out, but now Amelia wonders if Owen fell in love with Brain Tumor Amelia. Owen thinks the idea is ridiculous, but that doesn’t stop Amelia from distancing herself from him. Their marriage crumbles as a result.

What’s a guy to do? Why foster a child, of course. When Owen quickly figures out that kids are a full-time job, Amelia is happy to lend a helping hand. She’s also happy to stick around when she learns that the baby’s mom is a teenaged alcoholic. Amelia invites her into the house, and a charming little dysfunctional family is born. Owen is living his dream. Sort of.

Meredith and Nathan

Ugh. If Abigail Spencer wasn’t so cute, I’d hate her character Megan for screwing up Meredith’s relationship with Nathan. Megan is Owen’s sister and Nathan’s fiancé who served in the military with them but has been presumed dead for ten years. Guess what? She’s not dead! And she’s headed to Grey Sloane with a medical emergency. Look alive, everyone.

Are we glad that Megan survived her time in Iraq? Sure. Is it annoying that Meredith had to save her from her weird abdominal injury? Of course. It’s just a wee bit irritating that Meredith is finally open to loving someone again and she has to take the high road when Nathan looks at her with sad yet hopeful eyes, begging her to understand that his “big love” is miraculously back in his life. “If it were Derek, I would already be gone.” Classic Meredith.

Owen and Teddy

Owen takes off to Germany to see Teddy in person, ready to give it a go. All is well until Teddy learns that Owen just slept with Amelia five seconds ago. No sir! He high tails it back to Seattle and resumes his awkward arrangement with Amelia, because it will never happen with Teddy. Owen hops back on that bandwagon, owning the chaos.

Naturally, Teddy shows up out of the blue and is handed the interim chief position on a silver platter. She accepts. Oh, she’s also preggers. Presumably with Owen’s love child. Put another log on the dysfunctional fire, please.

Miranda and Ben

Miranda is tired of being chief, so she hands those reins over to Teddy after a quick interview. The heart attack she experienced has her thinking twice about life, her son, and her hunky husband.

Oh yes. Ben (played by Jason George) is hunky. He’s also starring on Shondaland’s Station 19, which debuted in the spring. Both bounce back from fire station to hospital, but their love is grounded. I’m glad Bailey will no longer be stuck behind a desk pushing papers. (Continued on page 2)

Harper Avery

For starters, Harper Avery dies and Jackson gets a bajillion dollars as a result. He anonymously slips the hospital some money to host an innovation contest. Everyone is on board, but it’s Meredith and Jo who win. It has something to do with a polymer and growing liver, and both are stoked.

There’s just one glitch: Meredith must acquire a patent that belongs to Ellis Grey’s former best friend, Marie Cerone. She hard passes which sends Meredith into a deep dive to figure out what is up with Marie.

It turns out, Harper Avery had several acts of sexual misconduct filed against him back in the day, and Jackson’s mom covered it up by paying major settlements to the women. One of those women is Marie Cerone. Bailey shuts down the research project, and Jackson changes the name of the Harper Avery Foundation to the Catherine Fox Foundation to protect his mother’s name. He also promises to retain, repay, and rehire all the women who were affected by Harper Avery’s mistreatment.

Jackson and Maggie

THESE TWO CRAZY KIDS ARE FINALLY TOGETHER!

April and Her Crisis of Faith

Sarah Drew, who plays April, had a whirlwind of activity in her final episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. She walks away from God, parties way too much, sleeps around, reunites with her ex-fiance Matthew (whose wife was lost in surgery), and ends up in a car crash that sends her plummeting into an ice cold river.

When Matthew is brought into the hospital, Owen figures out that April was with him, so he leaves the ER and somehow finds her at the scene of the accident. Yay! Except she’s sort of dead. Boo. It’s a good thing she’s at Grey Sloane where lots of people on staff have been dead before, including Meredith, who barks, “Warm dead is dead dead.” Maggie finds a pulse and April is alive again. Yay!

Arizona and Sofia

Poor Arizona can’t catch a break. She knows her daughter Sophia is not happy in Seattle and struggles to figure out a plan. Luckily, her mentor Nicole Herman, in the form of Geena Davis, offers Arizona a partnership in creating the Robbins-Herman Center for Women’s Health. In New York. Where Callie lives. Done and done.

I’ll miss you most of all, Jessica Capshaw.

Jo and Alex

Jo and Alex always had a rough go, thanks to Jo’s miserable ex-husband Paul. He’s the worst in all the ways. When he arrives at Grey Sloane, Meredith and Alex save the day by advocating for Jo, and Paul leaves undeterred with his new wife. Moments later, Paul is brought into the ER with major injuries. It was a hit and run. Did Alex hit him? Did the wife? Does it matter?

The doctors save Paul, which does nothing for his horrible character. He tries to attack Jo while in recovery, slips, hits his head, and is immediately brain dead. And since Jo wasn’t divorced from him yet, she gets to decide if she wants to pull the plug. Which she does. Right after she donates all of Paul’s organs.

Now Jo and Alex are free to marry! They are also free to enjoy a quickie before the ceremony. In true Grey’s form, they get locked in a shed with a dead guy. Fun times.

The day is a disaster. April accidentally sends everyone to the wrong church. The on-site wedding coordinator goes into anaphylactic shock. A drunk DeLuca kisses Meredith. And when the reverend shows up to marry the happy couple, no one can find the bride and groom.

This doesn’t stop some people from their happily ever after. April and Matthew step up and tie the knot. They are headed off to do mission work for the homeless. Good-bye, April!

And finally, once Alex and Jo are rescued from the shed and its ghost, Meredith gets ordained and marries her two friends on the back of a ferry.

Who’s ready for season 15? How do we feel about the new doctors in town? Will Meredith ever get another love story? Do you think Jackson and Maggie will make it? Or will something dramatic happen in the first episode?

Great. I just jinked them.

Episode Recaps

Meredith. Alex. Bailey. The doctors are definitely in on Shonda Rhimes’ hospital melodrama.

When will Season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy be on Netflix?

Grey’s Anatomy – Copyright ABC

Grey’s Anatomy is midway through its fifteenth season as ABC’s flagship medical drama and is still going strong after 14 years on the air. Season 15 is still expected to come to Netflix despite some rumors that it may depart the service soon. Here’s when we’re expecting season 5 of Grey’s Anatomy to be on Netflix.

The show has been a staple of the ABC lineup for many years now and lots of changes abound for the show. For one, there are rumors circulating that season 16 will be the very last of the show, we may be starting to see the beginning of the end Meredith Grey.

Continuing on from previous seasons we can expect to see the characters of the show dealing with hardships and difficulties of working on a surgical wing of a busy Seattle hospital.

This season of Grey’s Anatomy will see the show exceed the 300 episode mark. Grey’s Anatomy is currently the longest-running scripted primetime show on ABC history. And while ratings over the years have dipped, the medical drama powerhouse was ranked as ABC’s highest-rated drama.

When is Grey’s Anatomy season 15 going to be on Netflix?

In previous years new seasons of Grey’s Anatomy has arrived on Netflix in the summer. ABC typically adds new seasons shortly before new one’s air.

Netflix has confirmed that Season 15 will be coming to Netflix on June 15th, 2019!

If you can’t wait, Hulu and ABC both provide episodes available on a catchup basis meaning you can watch the past few episodes but the back catalog remains exclusive to Netflix.

Is Grey’s Anatomy leaving Netflix?

In March 2019, it was reported that Grey’s Anatomy could be leaving the service. The news came inside a report with several shows that are expected to leave Netflix for other streaming channels.

We’ve yet to hear anything more concrete on this but we’re keeping a close eye on it.

When will Grey’s Anatomy be on other regions?

If you’re in Canada, you’ll also be getting season 15. Season 14 recently came to Netflix in September 2018 and as a result, we’re expecting season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy to be on Netflix CA in September 2019.

In the UK Grey’s Anatomy has been a long time exclusive for broadcaster Sky on their Sky Living channel. Only on Sky Go and Now TV will you able to stream Grey’s Anatomy.

For fans in Australia, the show is available on Seven’s primary channel.

Are you excited for Grey’s Anatomy season 15 coming to Netflix? Let us know in the comments down below.

Could Season 16 be the last for Grey’s Anatomy? Star Ellen Pompeo has hinted that may be the case.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Pompeo, who plays Meredith Grey on the ABC medical drama, was asked if she sees herself continuing on the show beyond Season 16. “I’m clearly not prepared right now to make any formal announcement about what my future is on the show, but I am really feeling like we have told the majority of the stories that we can tell,” Pompeo told EW. “It’s about time that I mix it up. I’m definitely looking for a change.”

Pompeo’s current contract runs through Season 16 which will wrap in 2020. Pompeo told Deadline last January when she signed her two-year deal that she would love to do producing and directing when she finishes her stint on Grey’s. “I’d love to direct a pilot. I really like producing, that’s really challenging for me,” Pompeo told Deadline. “I think I’ve had an amazing training. I’ve had a Master Class in producing these last 14 years. I know every aspect of making a television show. Producing and directing is where I’m challenged and where I’m learning. It’s more interesting to me because it’s a skill I haven’t mastered yet.”

When Grey’s does finally end, series creator Shonda Rhimes, who last season handed off showrunning duties to EP Krista Vernoff, will return to write the final episode. “I have written the end of the show at least six times,” Rhimes told EW. “But we just don’t end. Every time I thought, ‘This is how the show should end,’ we’ve gone past those moments, so I’ve stopped trying. I have no idea now.”

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 premieres September 27 on ABC.

When Will ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Return in 2020? Fans Need Season 16 to Come Back Soon

The 350th episode may have reigned in longtime Grey’s Anatomy fans after shocking everyone with new drama and extraordinary flashbacks. But it seems the ABC series is about to take a brief hiatus for the winter, starting after the Nov. 21 episode. So when will Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 return in 2020? Fans are hoping the hit Shondaland series comes back with its midseason premiere date ASAP. And who knows? We might even see a little something with the cast of Station 19 along the way.

The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 16 midseason premiere release date in 2020 (Updated)

Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey | ABC/Christopher Willard

As of this write-up, ABC has yet to announce the Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 return date in 2020. The network will likely air the fall finale on Nov. 21 before revealing when the show starts back up again. Nevertheless, fans can still predict when Grey’s Anatomy comes back in 2020, so long as ABC continues to stick with the same schedule as previous seasons.

Ever since Grey’s Anatomy debuted in 2005, the typical schedule includes the season premiere in the fall, a winter break in November, and a midseason release early in the new year. Of course, there have been exceptions along the drama’s lengthy lifetime. However, the past few seasons have followed the same pattern.

In Grey’s Anatomy Season 14, ABC aired the fall finale on Nov. 16 and the show resumed on Jan. 18. Meanwhile, season 15 went on hiatus after Nov. 15 and released the midseason premiere on Jan. 17. So with Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 airing its fall finale on Nov. 21, it seems possible the show will return to its Thursday night time slot in mid to late-January 2020.

That said, on Nov. 14, ABC released a promo for the third season of Station 19, the spinoff series of Grey’s Anatomy. And in the trailer, the network revealed Station 19 is coming back in January 2020. So it’s possible both shows will return at the same time.

Update: On Nov. 21, Deadline reported the Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 winter premiere will be released on Thursday, Jan. 23. However, the new episode will start at a new time. Station 19 will air its third season premiere at 8 p.m. ET. Then Grey’s Anatomy will continue its 16th season at 9 p.m. ET. The episodes will be part of a two-hour crossover event.

Will we see another ‘Station 19’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ crossover when the shows return in 2020?

Despite being between seasons, Station 19 fans have been able to catch Vic (Barrett Doss) in a few crossover-arc episodes within Grey’s Anatomy Season 16. As of right now, Vic and Jackson (Jesse Williams) are dating. However, in the 350th episode, titled “My Shot,” Jackson almost kisses Maggie (Kelly McCreary).

Of course, given the circumstances, the fall finale will probably be a mess for Jackson, Maggie, and Vic. And it’s still possible the triangle could link the two shows together whenever they return in 2020. But even so, it seems a Grey’s Anatomy–Station 19 crossover episode is coming, as the fall finale promo teased fans with sirens from a firetruck and Ben (Jason George) rushing into Grey Sloan Memorial.

Nevertheless, with Krista Vernoff becoming the showrunner for both Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 this season, it seems fans of both shows will receive multiple crossover events moving forward. And when speaking with Deadline on May 14, Vernoff revealed just how many crossovers viewers can expect in the future.

“People can expect crossover event between these series every week,” she said.

What will happen in the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 16 fall finale?

Regardless of what happens when Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 come back with new episodes in the new year, fans still have to get through the Nov. 21 fall finale first. And as always, the ABC drama will leave fans begging for more.

In the promo trailer for the ninth episode of Grey’s Anatomy Season 16, titled “Let’s All Go to the Bar,” Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) returns to Grey Sloan. Meredith immediately runs into DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), who dumped her in the previous episode — and she lets him know how awkward the situation is.

The teaser also explained that there will be “one shock after another,” hinting at bombs dropped for Catherine (Debbie Allen) and Maggie. Then, as previously mentioned, Ben shows up at the hospital.

Then the voiceover says the episode will have “an ending that will leave you on the edge.” So it’s safe to say the Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 fall finale will end on a cliffhanger — good luck.

When is Grey’s Anatomy season 14 coming to Netflix? Fans can start watching at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on Saturday, June 16.

The new season of Grey’s Anatomy is almost available to Netflix subscribers to binge-watch. Grey’s Anatomy season 14 is headed to Netflix on Saturday, June 16.

Fans can start watching the new season as soon as it’s released on the streaming service at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on Saturday. That means, if you are willing to stay up late, until midnight PT, on Friday night, you can get a jumpstart on your Grey’s Anatomy binge-watch before the rest of the fans start watching over of the weekend.

The season finale aired on ABC on Thursday, May 17, 2018, so it’s often surprising for fans that the new season is heading to the streaming service only 30 days after the finale’s air date. It happens like that for all seasons of Grey’s Anatomy.

Netflix and ABC have an agreement that brings new seasons of some ABC shows to the streaming service 30 days after their season finale airs.

Grey’s Anatomy is one of the most popular shows on Netflix. There are tons of fans who watch the new seasons solely on Netflix, so this deal is mutually beneficial for Netflix and ABC.

ABC recently renewed the hit medical drama for a remarkable 15th season. The new season will premiere on ABC in the fall, and if all goes according to plan, Grey’s Anatomy season 15 will be added to Netflix in the late spring, as well.

Grey’s Anatomy is clearly one of the best TV shows on Netflix. With so many good episodes, there’s never been a better time to start watching this show. It should also keep you busy for a long time. With the latest season and more than 200 episodes, it should take at least a few months to watch – or rewatch – every episode.

All of Me Season 14 Episode 24 Editor’s Rating 5 stars ***** Photo: Eric McCandless/ABC

What. A. Freaking. Day. No Grey’s Anatomy wedding ever goes smoothly, so you knew there’d be hijinks and DRAMA on Alex and Jo’s big day, but all the hijinks and all the DRAMA? What a treat. It was delightful to be crying tears of joy at the end of a Grey’s season finale rather than sobbing into my Screaming Pillow because my heart had been torn out once more. We are all living by the end of this episode.

We should also remember that in addition to “All of Me” being the Karev-Wilson nuptials some people out there have been waiting for, the season 14 finale is also the big good-bye to two beloved characters. Did I want a more emotional Arizona and Alex scene? Sure. Have I always been lukewarm on April and Matthew? Definitely. But still, there’s something nice about characters getting a happy ending on this show. And since they have both avoided the Grey’s Anatomy Grim Reaper, maybe they will visit us again one day.

April certainly goes out with a bang, huh? She plans a gorgeous outdoor wedding for Alex and Jo on Bainbridge Island … that immediately goes to crap. Is this wedding cursed? If you believe it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the ceremony, then maybe so. Jo can’t help herself though. She gets word that she’s been accepted to a prestigious fellowship at Mass Gen in Boston. She has to tell Alex! He’s thrilled for his soon-to-be-wife. Meredith does not share the sentiment. She knows Alex will follow Jo wherever she goes, which means he’ll be headed across the country, too. She goes as far as offering Jo an attending job at Grey Sloan — a terrible idea — to keep Alex in her world. Eventually, she explains her feelings to Amelia: She’s worked hard to build a happy life without Derek or Cristina, so to lose Alex (“my Alex” she calls him; tears, so many tears), would be a huge blow to that life.

When Jo gets the offer from Meredith, she thinks Alex put her up to it, going back on his promise to let her choose where she wants to go. She heads over to see Alex once again, this time in her actual (very cute) wedding dress. So, yeah, if you are superstitious, you’re expecting the worst right now. Alex and Jo are not, so they instead decide to find a remote location on the island and get it on. Alex kicks in a shed door to accomplish this task. He is determined and committed—two great things to be when entering into holy matrimony. Good for him!

Alex and Jo have some time for this Shed Rendezvous because most of their guests are at the wrong wedding due to a GPS-link snafu on the wedding website. The minister is also missing. There is no world in which April wouldn’t have every detail of this wedding on lockdown, but it makes for a very hilarious episode, so we’ll go with it …begrudgingly. (The other item I find hard to believe: Stephanie isn’t at this wedding. Stephanie would be at this wedding.)

Seeing everyone’s faces as it dawns on them that they are definitely not at Alex and Jo’s wedding is worth the plot hole. They all slowly make a break for it, leaving Bailey (who just found out she is making some serious dough stacks from the Trailblazer) and Ben as the last ones left. It’s a good thing too, because the Mother of the Bride (Tisha Campbell-Martin, fun!) collapses. Bailey and Ben get her to Grey Sloan Memorial and into surgery. With Maggie away at the wedding, Bailey needs a heart surgeon. Who should wander in but Teddy Altman, cardio surgeon extraordinaire. Why is she here? WHAT TRICKS ARE YOU PLAYING, GREY’S?

Back on Bainbridge Island, the guests have finally arrived. That would be great news, except now no one can find Alex and Jo. And no one will for some time — they are locked in that sex shed. Thankfully, the bride and groom find humor in their situation. They work hard to put silver linings on everything — especially when they realize they just had sex next to a corpse sitting in the shed (what kind of shed is this?). They’re stuck, but they are together and they are laughing. Hey! Another great sign for their marriage!

Their situation gives the guests lots of time to partake in the age-old wedding tradition of getting drunk and awkwardly mingling. It’s especially awkward for people like, I don’t know, Jackson and Matthew, who have once again found themselves together at a wedding that April has planned. They both realize that they’ll have to make nice for April and Harriet’s sake, since neither are going anywhere.

It also gives Betty time to question Owen and Amelia’s relationship. Are they together? Are they just living in the same house and raising stray children together? Which is worse?

But it also gives us time for some revelations. In a touching moment, April, Arizona, and Webber (AZ’s wingman, never forget!) talk about how we can hurt one another but people change and you need to be open to opportunities. It’s what happened with Webber and Catherine, and April and Matthew, and it is what’s about to happen with Arizona and the newly single Callie.

YOU GUYS. I hooted and hollered so hard when I heard that Callie had ditched that wet blanket of a human Penny Blake. She ruined so many things, but she will not ruin the true love of Calzona, who thanks to some flirty texts, seem poised to reunite once Arizona and Sofia arrive in NYC. PRAISE SHONDA.

Thanks to Meredith needing to take a drunk, heartbroken DeLuca on a walk far away from a microphone, they stumble upon Alex and Jo. The bride and groom taste sweet freedom once again. Unfortunately, by the time they all get back they find that the uptight wedding coordinator has gone into anaphylactic shock and the good doctors of Grey Sloan have had to cric her right there in the aisle. If you’re going to have a life-threatening allergic reaction anywhere, let it be at a wedding full of doctors.

Just when it looks like there will be no wedding today — the bride and groom and most friends hop on the ferry back to Seattle — there end up being three.

First: A ferry-boat wedding! Thinking about it now, it is a mystery how no one has gotten married or delivered a baby on a ferry boat yet. Maggie has a brilliant idea to have Meredith become internet ordained and marry Alex and Jo. Alex tells Meredith that even if he goes to Boston (Grey’s will figure this out, don’t worry), Meredith will never be alone. And then he asks her to officiate. My cold, dead heart is neither cold nor dead anymore. Same with Meredith! She gives a very nice speech about how Alex and Jo have made it possible for her to look at ferry boats without weeping once more … but, like, she says it in a much more loving and wedding-officiant-appropriate way. And just like that, Alex Karev and Jo Wilson are married.

Second: Back on Bainbridge Island during cleanup duty, Matthew has been so moved by seeing April in action, watching her leave Grey Sloan to give medical assistance to homeless communities, and taking care of him and his daughter, that he proposes. Wouldn’t ya know it — the minister finally shows up at that exact moment and they take it as fate. Arizona walks April down the aisle, Jackson is there, unbelievably happy for his person, and April and Matthew are married. Second time’s a charm.

Finally: That wedding in which the MOB collapsed? Bailey and Teddy are making sure that is happening, too. Bailey is so inspired by the MOB’s speech to her daughter (played by Gavyn Pickens, James Pickens Jr.’s daughter IRL) about living while you’re alive, that Bailey realizes she needs some time away from the paperwork and stress of chief of surgery. She wants to take a sabbatical to do research and more surgeries and spend more time with her family — so she offers the position of interim chief (a sabbatical is only temporary) to Teddy.

As a thank-you, Bailey and Ben take the bride and groom to get married in the hospital chapel and livestream the whole thing, as Teddy holds the video up for the MOB to see from her hospital bed. It’s a lovely little moment. Teddy is moved to tears by this stranger’s wedding. But let’s blame that on the hormones because, yes … TEDDY. IS. PREGNANT.

It’s an extra-interesting development since I spied with my little eye Owen and Amelia getting pretty cozy on that ferry boat. We’re saying good-bye to two wonderful characters, but we are welcoming in a whole lot of drama for season 15.

Laughter Is the Best Medicine, Except for Real Medicine

• “Stop projecting your secret love all over me.” Meredith is always at her most hilarious when dealing with her sister-in-law.

• “Where do you sit if you used to be in love with the bride but then the groom beat you up and put you in the hospital?” Between this line and the entire scene with Meredith, DeLuca was on fire in this episode. I wish better things for DeLuca in season 15.

• “I can’t get past the Spanx!” Is this the realest moment in Grey’s Anatomy history?

Sob Scale: 5/10

If you’re playing Sara Ramirez’s version of “The Story” while people are getting married and rekindling romances and revealing dramatic pregnancies, there will be tears.

When Is The “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14 Finale On TV?

17 May 2018, 23:04

Picture: ABC

By Katie Louise Smith

@_katesss

When, where and how to watch the “Grey’s Anatomy” season 14 finale on ABC and elsewhere online.

The finale of Grey’s Anatomy season 14 is fast approaching and by the sounds of it, it’s going to be “devastating.”

The season 14 finale will be the last episode for Grey Sloan veterans Sarah Drew (April Kepner) and Jessica Capshaw (Arizona Robbins) who were “let go” from the series for creative reasons.

There’s also a few storylines that need to be wrapped up before heading into season 15. Will Teddy come back to Seattle and profess her love to Owen… again? Will Meredith find success in her medical trial? Will Alex and Jo get married? How will April and Arizona leave? Will Callie return to bring closure to Arizona’s storyline? Will someone die? So many questions… so little time! Here’s everything you need to know about the big season 14 finale, from the date, the title and where to watch:

When is the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy season 14?

The finale episode will air on Thursday, May 17th on ABC and is titled “All Of Me” and will be directed by Debbie Allen, who plays Dr. Catherine Avery on the show. This will be episode 24 out of 24.

What time is the Grey’s Anatomy season finale on?

As always, the finale episode will air at 8|7c on ABC.

A post shared by Sarah Drew (@thesarahdrew) on Apr 5, 2018 at 3:38pm PDT

Where can I watch the Grey’s Anatomy season 14 finale?

You can watch the Grey’s Anatomy finale live on ABC or you can watch the episode after it airs online at ABC for free. You can also watch it on Hulu with a Hulu Plus subscription.

Will Grey’s Anatomy season 14 be on Netflix?

Yes! But not until the season is over. New seasons of Grey’s Anatomy tend to arrive on the streaming service in the summer. Last year, season 13 of the show was added on June 17th. You can probably expect a similar date for season 14.

Will Grey’s Anatomy season 14 be on Netflix UK?

Unfortunately, the show is not available on the UK version of Netflix. Sky Living currently holds the license for the show. If you are a NowTV subscriber, you can watch the entire series – yes, all 14 seasons – on the app or online. Each episode is added weekly after the episode airs on Sky Living.

What will happen in the season 14 finale of Grey’s Anatomy?

Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) has already revealed some details about what’s going to happen in the final episode of the season and um… it doesn’t sound promising. After being asked by a fan how the table read for the finale went, she replied “You know it was classic Greys….devastating with a side of absurdity” alongside three broken heart emojis.

You know it was classic Greys….devastating with a side of absurdity 💔💔💔 https://t.co/KwEexPHSD1

— Ellen Pompeo (@EllenPompeo) April 6, 2018

“Devastating,” huh? Are you thinking what we’re thinking? It’s almost been three seasons with no major character deaths which means, as per the unwritten rules of the show, that a devastating death is long overdue at Grey Sloan. But it looks like there’s a possibility that both April and Arizona will be spared this time around.

In the penultimate episode, April was rushed into the OR after being found on a riverbank, cold and basically dead. She was brought back to life by Maggie. It was also revealed that April had rekindled her relationship with ex-fiance Matthew and it was strongly hinted that her story will end with her leaving with him. She’s not out of the woods yet but things are looking promising in the promo trailer for the finale episode.

Things seem better for Arizona: She will be leaving Seattle for New York with Sofia and Callie and with Dr Herman in tow. And unless there’s a VERY cruel twist in the final, it looks like both April and Arizona will get to walk away from Seattle with their legacies and their lives in tact.

The final episode of Grey’s Anatomy season 14 airs on Thursday, May 17th at 8/7c on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Cut Meredith’s Season 14 Love Interest After a Leak

Grey’s Anatomy could have had back-to-back-to-back seasons with (potential) romances for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo).

And one of those might have been “a European scientist” in Season 14, if plans to cast a “potential love interest” for the lead character hadn’t leaked.

“When that got leaked, I went into the writers’ room and said, ‘That’s not interesting to me anymore,'” executive producer Krista Vernoff tells Entertainment Weekly. “‘What else could this character be?'”

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: A Definitive Ranking of Meredith’s Relationships

See who tops the list and who is firmly at the bottom.

That was how the character of Marie Cerone (Rachel Ticotin) came to be. Marie was Ellis’ (Kate Burton) old friend whose permission Meredith needed to use a polymer for her research. Meredith then learned that her mother took credit for work the two women had done together, and Marie planned to develop mini-livers before Meredith could. In the end, Meredith renamed the Grey Method and made sure Marie got the credit she deserved for the Grey-Cerone method.

“It was a much more interesting story than some temporary love interest,” the EP said. “We changed it because we wanted to thwart expectations.”

(ABC/Byron Cohen)

So, rather than have Meredith, who lost Derek (Patrick Dempsey) in Season 11, have relationships with Nathan (Martin Henderson) in Season 13, this new character in Season 14, and now Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), fans (and Meredith) got a bit of a reprieve in the love department.

In Season 15, she and Andrew not only became involved and fell in love, but he also took the fall for her when she committed insurance fraud so one of her young patients could have a necessary operation. As the season ended, Meredith, Alex (Justin Chambers), and Richard (James Pickens Jr.) were fired for the roles they played in the fraud and cover-up after they told Bailey (Chandra Wilson) the truth, and Andrew was facing jail time.

What Happened to Jackson in the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 15 Finale?

The finale featured at least one character facing jail time, but it’s possible that one series regular may not be back in the fall.

Meredith told Andrew that she’d take responsibility for what he did, but the finale ended before she confessed, so we’ll have to wait to see how that plays out.

Sound off in the comments below with your thoughts on Meredith’s love life.

Grey’s Anatomy, Season 16, Fall 2019, ABC

What time does the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 14 premiere start?

Over the years, nothing has made viewers ugly cry in front of their TV screens like this Shonda Rhimes creation, so you better have the tissues handy tonight when Grey’s Anatomy season 14 episode 1 comes on.

The title of the season’s first episode is terrifyingly named “Break Down the House,” which has us forecasting plenty of painful moments throughout the two-hour premiere. Well, that and the fact that the second episode, which airs tonight directly following the first, is called “Get Off on the Pain.” Brace yourselves, because if there’s anything Rhimes has proven over the past thirteen seasons of the show — from the early on death of Denny and its devastating effect on Izzy to the shattering loss of McDreamy — it’s that she’s not afraid to pull some punches straight to the gut.

But where did the last season leave us?

To say Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is going through some shakeups would be, well, an understatement — and that’s for a place a little too familiar with workplace drama. The final episode of season 13 saw a fire that destroyed part of the hospital as well as the departure of Dr. Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton).

It wasn’t all bad news, though. Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Catherine (Debbie Allen) finally reconciled after they were driven apart by Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk). But as all things go on Grey’s, you shouldn’t expect smooth sailing for the couple throughout the new season.

Catherine is not only going to have to deal with an investigation into the hospital fire, but also a dinner party hosted jointly by the couple. And when has a dinner party on the TV drama ever gone well? “That dinner’s going to heat up with family controversy, and differences of opinions about things,” Allen warns. “It’s gonna be hot in the kitchen.”

What can you expect in the new season?

Love triangles, for one, but fans of the Rhimes show already saw that one coming.

You’re also going to see a character come back from the dead. OK, not physically. But someone presumed dead for a very long time will suddenly reemerge, causing anguish with a couple of the hospital staffers and sending another one on a mission.

On a somewhat less dramatic note, Jo is on the hunt for a new best friend now that Stephanie’s gone. She’ll turn to Ben Warren (Jason George), but we all know it won’t quite work out in the long-term since George has already accepted a role on the Grey’s Anatomy firefighter-themed spin-off.

Oh, yeah, and plenty of tear-jerking moments. Again, grab the tissues, take off the mascara and prepare yourself for what’s to come.

So what time does Grey’s Anatomy season 14 episode 1 start?

Make sure you’ve popped some popcorn because, we’ll remind you again, you’re getting two hour-long episodes tonight, which will air back-to-back on ABC. Grey’s Anatomy season 14 episode 1, “Break Down the House,” will start at 8 p.m. EST, with “Get Off on the Pain” following at 9 p.m. EST.

When Does ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 15 Premiere? Season 14 Is Almost Over & Fans Want More

It’s hard to believe, but in September, Grey’s Anatomy will be returning for Season 15. Let that sink in for a second. 15 seasons. Somehow, Grey’s has managed to stay fresh for a decade and a half, and its fans still watch the show with the same amount of excitement as they did when it first premiered in 2005. Now that Season 14 is almost over, I’m desperate to know when the show will return for another installment. So, when does Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 premiere? It’s going to be a long summer Grey’s fans — but at least there are 14 seasons available to binge watch on Netflix to help tide you over.

In April, ABC renewed Grey’s Anatomy for Season 15, making it the longest-running series in the network’s history. No official date has been set for the Season 15 premiere, but expect it to air sometime in September with ABC’s other dramas. The Season 14 premiere aired on Sept. 28, 2017, so if the network keeps Grey’s in its usual 8 p.m. Thursday time slot (and I can’t imagine why ABC would change it), it’s possible that Season 15 will premiere on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018. The exact number of episodes in Season 15 has yet to be announced, but the new season will likely have a full 24-episode order, the same amount as previous seasons (except for Season 1). If you want to be prepared for Season 15, make sure you have 24 boxes of tissues on hand come September.

ABC Television Network on YouTube

What should you expect in Season 15? Meredith Grey herself, Ellen Pompeo, weighed in on the question in a recent E! News interview, and her answer may surprise you.

I’d like to get in to neurological diseases, and disease in general and talk about what’s causing it. What we’re ingesting, what we’re inhaling, the chemicals that are in our food, water, air — what really is making people sick. I’d love to deal with that.

Interesting. This would definitely be a departure from Grey’s Anatomy’s usual complicated surgeries and bed-hopping story lines, but it may be exactly what the series needs — and it just may win Meredith another Harper Avery award. Pompeo’s goals are admirable, but she acknowledges that doing something so daring might not be possible on a network drama:

I don’t know if that’s a popular thing on network television and sponsors may not like that, so I don’t know that we’ll do that. We can’t be so political, right? We’re half rom-com, half procedural, but I would like to tackle the issue of illness and the chemicals in our environment that are poisoning the planet and our people.

I’m pretty sure that Meredith (and Pompeo) can accomplish whatever they set their minds to, so I’m not too worried about Grey’s Anatomy being able to pull this one off.

ABC/Byron Cohen

You may think that after years of experience, producing the show is now a breeze, but according to Pompeo, that’s incorrect. The star told E! that everyone is hyper-aware that they must outperform themselves, and the cast and crew have made a sort of game out of it:

We’re in a competition with ourselves, like: Can we keep the quality up? Can we keep the storytelling up? Can we keep this audience? So, it’s kind of a fun competition we’re in with ourselves.

Fifteen seasons is a long time for a show to be on the air, but don’t worry: From the looks of it, Grey’s Anatomy will be around for many more seasons. In 2017, Pompeo signed a massive $20 million-a-year deal with ABC that made her TV’s highest-earning actress on a drama series. The deal covers Seasons 15 and 16, so even though Season 16 has not officially been approved, it’s safe to say that it will happen. Pompeo discussed the deal in a January interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and if you haven’t read the interview yet, do it ASAP. It’s a hilarious behind-the-scenes peek at Grey’s Anatomy, plus a badass guide to negotiating a salary that acknowledges with your worth.

There are only two episodes left in Season 14 of Grey’s Anatomy, so if you want to stay up to date for Season 15, be sure not to miss them. After all, there’s no such thing as an uneventful Grey’s season finale.

Grey’s Anatomy airs at 8 p.m. ET Thursdays on ABC.

KeepReading…

All right, Shondaland fans, the longest-running show of ABC’s TGIT lineup is finally back this week with Season 14 premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy.” We’re breaking down everything you need to know from last season ahead of Thursday episode. Ready to scrub in?

1. Dr. Edwards quits

Let’s start with Dr. Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton), since her storyline ended with a literal bang, and her absence from the show will leave a snark-shaped hole in our hearts. After getting perpetually hounded by Dr. Minnick (Marika Dominczyk), she was put on leave until completing therapy.

Edwards convinces Dr. Webber (James Pickens Jr.) to sign off on her return just in time to help Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) and April Kepner (Sarah Drew) with a couple whose car went off a cliff.

They come into the hospital in various states of undress, and the doctors assume the couple accidentally shifted the gear while getting it on in the car. But no, the story isn’t as would-be romantic as the docs imagine.

It turns out the the woman, Allison, was actually trying to escape from the man, Keith, who was trying to rape her. The residents don’t find this out in time, however, and Keith tricks Edwards into taking him out of his room.

What follows is a chain of events that reminds us of some of “Grey’s” classic disaster episodes. When Allison wakes up, she alerts Bailey and the others to Keith’s threat and the hospital goes into lock down.

Also Read: Jason George to Leave ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ for Firefighter Spinoff

Keith, aware that he’s been found out, orders Edwards to help him escape the hospital. But because of the lockdown, all the exit doors are locked. They end up in an abandoned wing of the hospital, where they run into Erin (Darby Camp), a young girl who’s been wandering the halls while she waits for her little sister to be discharged.

Keith is trying to start a fire so the doors will open, but Edwards manages to set him on fire instead. But when Keith runs too close to some chemicals in an abandoned lab, he causes a huge explosion. Edwards somehow survives, but Erin is injured. She is able to get them both out into the stairwell, but not before jumping through some flames.

Eventually, they make it to the roof, and Dr. Ben Warren (Jason George) and some firefighters find them. They both survive, but Edwards decides she’s done working in the hospital for now, and tells Dr. Webber that she’s quit.

2. Megan Hunt is alive

Meanwhile, some serious developments are happening in Dr. Owen Hunt’s (Kevin McKidd) relationship with Dr. Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) — and in Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) relationship with Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson).

If you remember, Riggs and Hunt used to be best buds, and Riggs used to date Hunt’s sister Megan (Abigail Spencer). They were all in the Army together, and when Megan went missing, everyone assumed she died. But Hunt finds out that she’s still alive, and Amelia takes over organizing logistics as he’s in shock. And guess who Amelia organizes logistics with?

3. Dr. Teddy Altman returns

That’s right. Kim Raver’s back for Season 14.

As for how this news affects Meredith, well, she tells Riggs to go with Hunt and Amelia to see Megan. “If it were Derek, I’d already be gone,” Meredith tells Riggs, totally breaking our hearts all over again.

Meredith was previously worried about how spending so much time with Riggs would affect Maggie (who used to have a huge crush on him) and her children. Will Riggs get back together with Megan, or will what she’s been through strain their old flame? If he doesn’t get back together with her, will he be able to stay with Meredith?

4. Dr. Minnick gets fired

Then we come to Minnick, who during the lockdown/fire disaster wasn’t as helpful as she demanded that everyone else be. Yes, she actually forgot to tell the police that Edwards was missing. This looks especially bad as Minnick has been harsh on Edwards for weeks. Dr. Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) wants to know how the disaster got so bad, and why it took forever to find the people missing.

Bailey insists that she groomed her doctors well — as evidenced by Avery, Warren and others’ concern for those missing and their determination to find Edwards and Erin. Finally, Minnick is let go. But she’s had a relationship going with Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw), so we suspect she might not be gone for good.

We can’t wait to find out what happens next for everyone at Grey-Sloan Memorial tonight during the two-hour premiere at 8 p.m. on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: 14 Best Episodes for Show’s 14th Season (Photos)

  • Well, Grey-Sloan Memorial fans, the long wait is finally (almost) over. Season 14 of ABC’s hit from Shonda Rhimes returns Sept. 28 to head the network’s TGIT lineup. To get ready, we rounded up our 14 favorite episodes.

    ABC

  • Season 8 Episode 21: “Moment of Truth”

    Biggest moment: April decides to have sex with Jackson

    April has toned way down in the most recent seasons of “Grey’s,” but remember back when she was the virgin whose buttons everyone loved to push? That all changed in this episode, when the fifth year residents head out to take their board exams and April and Jackson get it on. It’s fun to watch the very beginning of what will become one of our favorite relationships to watch on the show. April is full of adrenaline after punching a mouthy competitor for a job she’s been offered and Jackson is fresh off a breakup with Lexie.

    ABC

  • Season 3 Episode 25: “Didn’t We Almost Have it All?”

    Biggest moment: Cristina and Burke’s wedding

    This episode marks a major heartbreak for our girl Cristina and also the exit of primary character Dr. Burke. Cristina and Burke have had clear red flags throughout their relationship, but have made it as far as Burke’s mom coming into town to transform Cristina for the wedding (and steal her eyebrows). At the wedding, Cristina realizes she can’t walk down the aisle and has a panic attack. Burke realizes that she would get married for him, but in her heart of hearts she doesn’t really want to. They’re relationship is done, especially when Burke disappears after the botched ceremony.

    ABC

  • Season 10 Episode 24: “Fear (Of the Unknown)”

    Biggest Moment: Cristina’s last day

    This episode really pulled at our heartstrings, as it marks the exit of Meredith’s other half Cristina. As Cristina is preparing for her move to Zurich, an explosion occurs at a local mall, and, of course, she can’t help but to dive in. Cristina gets Meredith to promise not to be a hero — she’s had enough close calls — and they dance it out one last time before she’s gone.

    ABC

  • Season 5 Episode 19: “Elevator Love Letter”

    Biggest moment: Derek proposes to Mer

    We love this moment in Mer and Derek’s on-again, off-again romance, when Derek finally decides to pop the question to Meredith, who is traditionally anti- all things ooey gooey. He goes all out after showing up on Meredith’s door step with a ring and nothing else, totally catering the (second) proposal to Meredith and their relationship by putting up scans of important surgeries they worked on together in the elevator at the hospital (fans of the show will remember plenty of awkward elevator run-ins for the couple). Plus, he delivers this full-on McDreamy line: “You say you’re dark and twisty, but that’s not a weakness, it’s a strength. It makes you who you are. I love you Meredith Grey, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”

    ABC

  • Season 6 Episode 1: “Good Mourning”

    Biggest moment: George dies

    This episode gives us one of the most heartbreaking deaths of the entire series: George O’Malley. We know, it’s hard to relive. After saving a girl at a bus stop by pushing her out of the way, George is brain dead and all of his organs are donated to children who are in need. Izzie breaks up at the funeral, and ends up laughing at the absurd twists of fate everyone has experienced, from her cancer to George’s death. Meredith holds in her emotions until it’s time for George’s locker to be cleaned out. The end of the episode delivers a shocker: Seattle Grace will merge with rival hospital Mercy West.

    ABC

  • Season 3 Episode 15, 16 and 17: “Walk on Water,” “Drowning on Dry Land” and “Some Kind of Miracle”

    Biggest moment: Meredith almost drowns

    In Season 3, Meredith is going through some serious depression, and we honestly can’t blame her. She’s been up and down with Derek, dealing with her mom’s Alzheimer’s and disappointment, not to mention helping everyone else navigate their own problems and manage being a resident. So when a ferry crash leads her to the scene by the Puget Sound and she accidentally falls into the water, she doesn’t try to save herself. Luckily, Derek saves her, and after toying with the afterlife, Meredith ends up being OK.

    ABC

  • Season 5 Episode 24: “Now or Never”

    Biggest moment: Meredith and Derek’s Post-It Note marriage

    The Season 5 finale marks a huge moment in Meredith and Derek’s relationship — and also a huge reveal from fan-favorite character George O’Malley. George announced abruptly that he’s joining the army to be a trauma surgeon, to the dismay of Bailey and the others. Meanwhile, Meredith announces to Cristina that she’s getting married. Cristina is surprised, but gives her something old — a grocery list on a Post-It, something new — a new Post-It, something borrowed–her favorite pen, and something blue –all of their attitudes. Later in the day, Mer and McDreamy realize they don’t have time to get married because of surgeries, so they write their vows on the empty Post-It note and call it good. It’s a moment that is so sweet and so indicative of their relationship.

    The end of the episode also delivers a huge shock, when John Doe outlines “007” on Meredith’s hand–that’s George’s old nickname, tipping her off that the surgical patient that stalled her wedding his George O’Malley.

    ABC

  • Season 2 Episode 5: “Bring the Pain”

    Biggest moment: George operates in an elevator and Meredith’s iconic “Pick me, choose me, love me” line

    Who could forget the moment George finally earned some respect when he saved the life of a Seattle police officer in the middle of a storm. Oh, not to mention that he, Karev and the patient were stuck in an elevator and Dr. Burke had to talk him through the whole thing. It’s one of our favorite George moments.

    Meanwhile, Derek must choose between wife Addison and intern Meredith Grey. Meredith doesn’t want to beg, but does anyway: “Pick me. Choose me. Love me,” she tells Derek. The episode ends with Mer waiting at Joe’s Bar to see if Derek will, in fact, choose her. The scene is iconic and one of our favorite moments from their relationship.

    ABC

  • Season 2 Episode 16 and 17: “It’s the End of the World” and “As We Know It”

    Biggest moment: The bomb

    This was the first of the Grey’s Anatomy disaster episodes, and let us know pretty early on in the series that anything can — and will — happen at Seattle Grace. In this iconic episode, Meredith ends up taking the place of a young paramedic whose hand is stuck in the body cavity of man who got his homemade grenade stuck in there … we know, it’s crazy. Also, Kyle Chandler guest stars in this episode, and who can get enough of Kyle Chandler?

    Meanwhile, Dr. Bailey is in labor while her husband is in surgery after a car crash, and it’s up to George to get her to agree to have the baby before he’s out of surgery, or else risk the baby’s health.

    ABC

  • Season 6 Episode 23 and 24: “Sanctuary” and “Death and All His Friends”

    Biggest moment: An active shooter infiltrates Seattle Grace

    Another twofer and another well-recognized storyline from the series. Meredith learns she’s pregnant, only to miscarry hours later after the angry husband of a patient who died comes back to the hospital to get his revenge. Clark, the vengeful shooter, shoots Derek, and he needs surgery right away. As Cristina operates on Derek, Clark finds them in the OR and threatens Cristina, because he blames Derek for his wife’s death. Meredith — in typical Meredith fashion — begs for Clark to shoot her instead. Owen tries to get the gun from Clark and ends up getting shot, too. Clark ends up taking his own life.

    ABC

  • Season 8 Episode 24: “Flight”

    Biggest moment: Plane crash

    This episode might be “Grey’s Anatomy’s” most recognized (it’s a toss up between this one and the bomb episode, also on this list). It’s definitely one of the most heart-wrenching, as several main characters are either seriously injured or killed-off, like fan-favorite Lexie, who is Meredith’s half-sister and Mark Sloan’s love interest. Watching his heart break while she died caused our hearts to break, too.

    ABC

  • OK, so you actually got more than 14 episodes thanks to plenty of two-and three-part episodes featured on this list.
