Is ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ on tonight?

Is “Grey’s Anatomy” on tonight? NO. ABC’s long-running medical drama aired its Season 19 finale on Thursday, May 18, 2023. A 20th season has been ordered with new showrunner Meg Marinis, but it is not expected to debut until early 2024 due to the writers’ strike. Read on for everything to know about “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Who are the original cast members?
“Grey’s Anatomy” centers around the personal and professional lives of the interns, residents and attendings at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. The series has seen its fair share of cast overall over the past two decades, but there are still two originals among the current line-up: Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey and James Pickens Jr. as Richard Webber. Ellen Pompeo‘s Meredith Grey left Seattle during the 19th season, but the actress still does the show’s narration and she returned in the season finale.

In Season 19, the show welcomed five new interns played by Alexis Floyd, Niko Terho, Midori Francis, Adelaide Kane and Harry Shum Jr. who are all trying to make their way in the medical field.

Who has died on “Grey’s Anatomy”?
Through the years, “Grey’s Anatomy” fans have watched in shock and awe as some of their favorite characters were killed off, often under violent circumstances. T. R. Knight‘s George O’Malley was hit by a bus, Eric Dane‘s Mark Sloan and Chyler Leigh‘s Lexie Grey were both in a plane crash, Patrick Dempsey‘s Derek Shepherd was in a car crash, and Giacomo Gianniotti‘s Andrew DeLuca was stabbed.

How many spin-offs are there?
Due to its extreme success, “Grey’s Anatomy” has spawned two spin-off series: “Private Practice” (2007-2013) and “Station 19” (2018-Present). The flagship show has engaged in multiple crossover stories with both spin-offs through the years.

Who is the showrunner?
Creator and original showrunner Shonda Rhimes handed off the reigns to Krista Vernoff in 2015, who was then replaced by Meg Marinis in 2023. “It has been the privilege of a lifetime to be entrusted to run Grey’s Anatomy for the past six years and Station 19 for the last four,” Vernoff told our sister site Deadline. “The passion of the dedicated fandoms and the impact that these shows have on hearts and minds cannot be overstated. The amount of talent in these two extraordinary casts and these two brilliant writers rooms is beyond measure — and these crews work magic week after week.”

How many Emmys has “Grey’s Anatomy” received?
The show has won five Emmy Awards through the years for Katherine Heigl (2007), Loretta Devine (2011), casting (2006), prosthetic makeup (2010) and non-prosthetic makeup (2010).
