Another day, another medical emergency at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Even though the season 18 finale of Grey’s Anatomy just aired, we’ve been lucky to experience quite a few twists and turns this year.
We saw Kate Walsh return to play Addison for a few episodes. Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew — who portrayed Jackson and April, respectively — also shocked fans with surprise appearances. Cast members aside, what’s going on with Meredith, played by Ellen Pompeo, choosing to leave her position just as the Grey Sloan residency program gets put on probation? There are so many questions that we need answers to and lucky for us, we’re going to get them.
That’s right — our favorite Shondaland show is set to return for a remarkable season 19. While there aren’t too many details about what we should expect from the new episodes, here’s everything we know about Grey’s Anatomy season 19 so far:
When is Grey’s Anatomy returning for season 19?
Grey’s Anatomy season 19 will come back to ABC in the fall. At the moment, there is no premiere date for the new season. That said, fans can still block out their Thursday nights to watch new episodes. According to Deadline, ABC will air Grey’s Anatomy at 9 p.m. ET after Station 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

In January 2022, ABC announced that the beloved show would return after securing contracts for leading actors Ellen, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr.
“We have enormous faith in Shonda [Rhimes], Krista Vernoff, Ellen Pompeo and the entire creative team to unlock new, untold stories that will continue to focus on modern medicine, tackle the issues that shape the world around us, and resonate deeply with loyal fans for years to come,” said Dana Walden, chairman of entertainment at Walt Disney Television, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Who will be in the cast for Grey’s Anatomy season 19?
Aside from Ellen, Chandra and James staying on the show, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that viewers can expect to see plenty of other fan favorites to join the trio onscreen. Among the actors: Kevin McKidd (Owen), Camilla Luddington (Jo), Kim Raver (Teddy), Caterina Scorsone (Amelia), Kelly McCreary (Maggie), Jake Borelli (Levi), Chris Carmack (Link), Anthony Hill (Winston) and Scott Speedman (Nick) —just to name a few.
While it’s great to see so many names back on our radars, it’s hard to say how long Ellen’s tenure will continue on the show. In December 2021, she told Insider that while she isn’t quite sure how Meredith’s time on the show will finish, she wants it to happen at some point soon.
“I’ve been trying to focus on convincing everybody that it should end,” the longtime Grey’s actress told the outlet. “I feel like I’m the super naive one who keeps saying, ‘But what’s the story going to be, what story are we going to tell?’ And everyone’s like, ‘Who cares, Ellen? It makes a gazillion dollars.’”
Is Grey’s Anatomy season 19 going to be the show’s final season?
Not even ABC is sure of the answer to this question. In a May 2022 interview with Deadline, ABC Entertainment President Craig Erwich said there are no final decisions about the future of the show .“We haven’t made any decisions at all,” he told the outlet. “We just celebrated Grey’s 400th episode, which is a remarkable achievement for any show.”
In other words: If there are plans for an ending, ABC and Shondaland are certainly not cluing us in just yet.
How can I watch and stream Grey’s Anatomy season 19?
Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait a little while before you can start watching the new season. But once it does premiere new episodes, the show will on ABC on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET. Additionally, viewers can watch on the ABC app or on ABC.com the next day.
If you’re not in the mood to watch Grey’s Anatomy live, it is also available to watch on Hulu, Philo and fuboTV. There’s also the option to purchase individual episodes of Grey’s Anatomy on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube and Apple TV.
