Much criticized never equaled! While some think Gray’s Anatomy Season 17 would have been a perfect ending for the medical program, it seems Meredith and the Gray Sloan Memorial doctors aren’t quite ready to bow out! Krista Vernoff, the current showrunner, and her teams are indeed working on a new spin-off of the series. The third for ABC fiction after Private Pratice built around the character of Addison Montgomery and Station 19 which focuses on the firefighter career of Ben Warren, Miranda Bailey’s husband. A new high priority adventure for the American channel which nevertheless specifies that the project is still in its infancy.
In an interview given to Deadline site, the president of ABC does not hide his ambition for this variation that he names “the new era of Grey’s Anatomy“and adds that he wishes”find the new version of the series that will accompany us for the next 18 years“. A reference to the rare longevity of Grey’s Anatomy and its relentless audience records. Could it be that this spin-off focuses on the couple Jackson and April as evoked by Jesse Williams? So what about Meredith and the doctors staying in Seattle? Although an announcement would be premature, the term “new version of the series” suggests that the medical program may end after its season 18.
