Grey’s Anatomy season 16 spoilers: Show EP on family-based theme

Grey's Anatomy season 14Grey’s Anatomy season 16 was coined the Season of Love heading into the premiere, and this time around, the show has a new approach.

Will love still be a key part in the central narrative? Absolutely, but you could also argue that love has always been a part of the story with this show. There are relationships that are going to be a huge part of the story coming up and, beyond just that, there is going to be heartbreak and happiness. you’ll also see in the premiere what happens with Jackson finale the big finale at the end of season 15.

Moving forward, some of the other stories that you’re going to see are ones based on family, and ones that are all about watching some of these characters handling big decisions when it comes both to their biological families or their work families. Here is what showrunner Krista Vernoff had to say in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

I don’t have a label for it. Season of Love was a lucky swing. Those kids came on the Tony Awards and sang”Season of Love” and I was feeling a lack of cohesion. I came in and I said, “It’s the Season of Love.” Then the press ran with that and that was really fun. But we have never had a “season of” anything before that. It’s hard to follow up on the Season of Love, but I feel like there’s the “Season of Family” and we’ve got our 350th episode, which is a big one. I don’t have a theme for the season, but we are doing a really good job of paying off the finale from last season. We are doing a direct pickup [from when the finale ended]. We are playing through the consequences of Meredith’s decision and playing through the consequences of Bailey’s (Chandra Wilson) decision, of Catherine’s (Debbie Allen) decision, of Teddy (Kim Raver) and Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) decision. We didn’t do a reset; we already shook it up.

Because there is no reset, expect to see the pace move quickly and for there to be a lot of drama almost immediately with this season. That’s definitely something we’re embracing, the hope is that this is going to be a fantastic kick-off to what will be a timely, emotional batch of episodes for this show.
