Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 are getting ready for their big Fall 2020 returns. ABC is planning a three-hour-long crossover event for the premiere of both shows in November. The network released posters and teasers for both shows this week.
Grey’s Anatomy is getting ready for season 17 with Ellen Pompeo and the rest of the cast tackling COVID-19 head-on with the new season. Station 19, which is returning for its fourth season, will also tackle the pandemic from the eyes of first responders.
Production for both shows started earlier this month. Grey’s Anatomy ended its 16th season four episodes early in May. Station 19 managed to finish production on its third season before the shutdown.
ABC revealed more about both shows and their return in a press release.
