Grey’s Anatomy season 17 is coming … but you’re going to be waiting for a good while in order to see it happen.
In a post on Twitter (see below), ABC shared what is a temporary promotional poster-of-sorts for the upcoming season, with them noting that it will remain on Thursdays and it is coming “soon.” Is there a whole cavalcade of new information in here? Hardly, and we imagine that there isn’t going to be more information for some time. “Soon” could mean the fall, but it could also mean many mean early next year. We think the plan is for the show to return in the fall still, but we’re all at the mercy of what is going on with this current health crisis.

In the end, our hope is that producers will closely analyze the situation and then figure out when they have a proper plan in place. ABC is keeping enough flexibility at the moment as to not disappoint anyone.
The biggest challenge that they’re going to have, beyond determining the specific premiere date, is simply going to be trying to figure out how to create story given the current crisis. We’re still waiting to see if the planned scripts from last season (which were not able to be filmed) are usable now given all that has happened in the world. There are so many topical subjects that need to be addressed, and the writers may decide that they don’t exactly want to wait in order to get them on the air.
