It’s become somewhat of a tradition for Grey’s Anatomy to film some scenes in Seattle, and today we’re pleased to report that this tradition is holding firm once more.
In a new post on Twitter (see below), you can see a shot featuring showrunner Krista Vernoff alongside actress/executive producer/director Debbie Allen and star/also occasional director Kevin McKidd. The Seattle shoot is something that tends to happen early on in production, where select cast members and behind-the-scenes talent go up to the Emerald City to bank a chunk of footage. It’s not always just for one given episode; instead, it’s something that they can spread out and air across multiple episodes of the show.
Why do this? It may cost a chunk of change to travel with the cast and crew, but this is done primarily with authenticity in mind. You want Grey’s Anatomy to feel like a show that is actually thriving in Seattle, and sometimes it’s hard to do that within Los Angeles. The two cities just have different vibes and they absolutely have different climates and iconic locales. It’s nice for Grey’s to feel like Seattle however often it can.
You will see Grey’s Anatomy season 16 premiere in September on ABC and if we had to guess, we would say that the location of various scenes will not be top priority in the early going. Instead, we’d bank a little bit more on everyone being worried over the fate of DeLuca, Meredith, and others after the insurance-fraud crisis caused Bailey to make a decision that she probably did not want to make. Meanwhile, we’d also go ahead and predict that we’re going to be seeing a lot of Teddy working in order to make some sort of decision in regards to Owen and Koracick. what does she want for sure when it comes to the future of her life?
