While ABC has made some changes to its fall schedule, TGIT is mostly the same. Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 is part of it, and here’s what we know so far.

ABC’s fall schedule sees black-ish moved to the midseason and Big Sky moved to Thursdays, but that’s about it for the big changes. It’s looking like a strong and promising line-up of content.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 is happening and it is part of the line-up. What else do we know about the season so far? Very little if we’re honest, but more news will come throughout the summer. Here’s what we do know so far, and you’ll want to bookmark this post, as we’ll bring the updates as they happen.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 premiere date

We don’t have an exact premiere date just yet, but that will likely arrive sometime in the summer. What we do know is that the season is going to remain in the Thursday 9/8c timeslot and will follow new episodes of Station 19. This means more crossovers are happening. New episodes of Big Sky will air in the hour slot afterward.

ABC is looking to bring a traditional fall. That suggests the premiere is going to be the last week of September 2021.

Grey’s Anatomy: Season 1 ($)

Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 cast

Ellen Pompeo is returning to the series. We can also expect the majority of the cast to return, including James Pickens Jr. and Chandra Wilson.

There are three actors from Season 17 who definitely won’t return as series regulars. Giacomo Gianniotti’s Andrew DeLuca was killed off during the midseason premiere.

Meanwhile, Jesse Williams and Greg Germann’s Jackson Avery and Tom Koracick left during Season 17, Episode 15. Germann will be back as a guest star in the future, but Williams is off the series. Of course, never say never.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 trailer

There isn’t a trailer just yet for the season. It’s not started filming yet, so that’s not surprising. We won’t get the trailer until much closer to the premiere date, so we’re looking at some time in the summer months.

What’s the synopsis for the season?

We haven’t had the Season 17 finale just yet, so it’s hard to say if there will be any storylines that continue over. We don’t even know if the show will jump ahead from COVID-19. The pandemic storyline has been extremely hard to watch.

While most medical dramas have included it in the first couple of episodes and then moved to a post-COVID world, Grey’s Anatomy has stuck with the beginning of the pandemic throughout the season. We could really do with moving to a post-COVID world now.
