Grey’s Anatomy season 19 officially aired on ABC on Thursday, October 6, 2022. Glued to their television sets, fans of this American medical show got some of the answers to the questions which were left unanswered in the previous season. However, those who find getting answers on the tips of their fingers easier than the former method might have to wait a while before they can watch Grey’s Anatomy since the episodes have not dropped on Netflix as of yet.
However, that’s not the only sad news. According to Netflix Life, “…we won’t even get any new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy season 19 on ABC in January 2023.” So far, the show has aired six episodes and according to sources, the seventh one will not air until February. This is extremely disappointing for the fans since the first episode dropped on the official network in October and the upcoming episode will not air until February. As per the deal between ABC and Netflix, the whole season will have to air on the official network before it hits the Netflix library. Currently, all six episodes are available for streaming on Hulu.
With that said, here’s all the information you need to know about Grey’s Anatomy season 19.
When can we expect Grey’s Anatomy season 19 to arrive on Netflix?
At the time of writing this article, Netflix has been radio silent regarding the release date of Grey’s Anatomy season 19. Part of the ambiguity surrounding the release date is caused by the uncertainty of the finale date.
As per the sources, Grey’s Anatomy season 19 will supposedly air at least 20 episodes. However, there is no certainty regarding the number of episodes; it could also fall between the range of 22-24. All we know for certain is that the next episode will possibly air in February and it will be the one bidding adieu to Meredith Grey. As per the reports, Ellen Pompeo is leaving the series, however, she will return for the finale episode.
According to Netflix Life, the finale episode will air in May 2023. As per the deal between the network and the streaming giant, the episodes will then arrive on Netflix 30 days later. This alludes to the arrival of the new season of Grey’s Anatomy on the official streamer sometime in June 2023.
What can we expect to happen in season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy?
Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy will bring a sea change in the lives of the majority of characters. As stated by Netflix Life, the brand-new season will be a “reboot of sorts” as it heralds the dynamic changes in the relationships of each character with the other. If you have already watched the first six episodes of this American drama, then you would know how mysterious each intern is, owing to their adherence to hiding their individual secrets.
However, as mentioned previously, this season will observe the exit of Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith Grey, which will be largely bolstered by Zola’s storyline. Season 19 will also constitute the reopening of the Residency Program after a six-month shutdown. This begs the question:
With Meredith as interim chief and the return of Nick, what will happen to the two of them?
