Grey’s Anatomy is Getting Another Season?!

Grey’s Anatomy, a medical drama that has lasted 16 years, is surprisingly having another season. The announcement by producers Shonda Rhimes and Krista Vernoff left fans exhausted;

17 seasons, an hour each episode, and it still won’t end?

The fictional story is centered around Meredith Grey, an aspiring surgeon and daughter of Ellis Grey, a world-renowned surgeon. Throughout the series, Meredith goes through professional and personal challenges with her fellow co-surgeons.

Many fans, like Junior Cameron Ren, think the show has run out of ideas. Ren said, “The audience is no longer engaged in the show as it is constant repetition”.

Many of Shonda’s ideas and weird story plot changes don’t seem to make sense, creating unrealistic scenarios to watch.

Junior Abby Kassai said, “As much as I used to love this show, it's definitely gone for too long. It runs its course for fresh ideas. Grey’s did make me interested in medicine, I'll give it that, but when I tell you that seasons 15-17 are so unbearable to watch!”

Since fans have been planning for the show to end a while ago they find it draining to watch another season of Grey’s, some fans still haven't gotten through its past seasons.

Ellen Pompeo, the actor who plays Meredith Grey, has tried to leave the show due to its length.

At the Emmys this past September, Pompeo said, "I mean, I've been trying to get away for years; I have been trying, it's not because I haven't been trying. I have strong relationships at the network and they have been very, very good to me, and have incentivized me to stay.”

After season 18 came out on September 18th, there hasn't been much talk of what will happen next; but fans are anxious. Although Ren dislikes the current plot, she mentioned, “I am excited about the new season coming out”. Many other students relate. Let’s see where this mystery goes.


Grey’s Anatomy is back at it! An 18th season that Grey’s Anatomy fans weren’t expecting.
