Hit hospital drama, Grey’s Anatomy, is set to take on Coronavirus in season 17.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken over the world for the past six months – but as if we hadn’t already had enough of it, it’s set to take over our television screens too.
Executive producer, Krista Vernoff, made the huge revelation about Grey’s Anatomy season 17.
We’re going to address this pandemic for sure. There’s no way to be a long-running medical show and not do the medical story of our lifetimes.
She added that the show’s writers are currently meeting and talking with real-life doctors who are battling the deadly virus which has brought the world to a stand still.
Every year, we have doctors come and tell us their stories, and usually they’re telling their funniest or craziest stories. This year, it has felt more like therapy.
The doctors come in and we’re the first people they’re talking to about these types of experiences they’re having. They are literally shaking and trying not to cry, they’re pale, and they’re talking about it as war — a war that they were not trained for.
And that’s been one of our big conversations about Owen, is that he’s actually trained for this in a way that most of the other doctors aren’t.
Sure sounds like it’s going to make the most interesting season yet.
