We know that the Grey’s Anatomy season 17 writers’ room is in session, but we haven’t gotten too many updates behind the scenes. That is, until now.

In a post on Twitter below, you can see executive producer Krista Vernoff sharing a photo of the Zoom-based writers’ room for the upcoming season, one that features new cast member Anthony Hill. He was recently announced as a series regular, and his presence should be exciting given that we don’t really know the new character of Winston all that well.
For those who are unaware, it’s common for actors to have meetings with writers’ rooms as a way to better understand their characters and storylines that they could have coming up. It creates a better sense of familiarity — though as Vernoff notes, these things are always better when you have a chance to do them in-person. We unfortunately don’t think we’ll be seeing in-person meetings or an in-person writers’ room through the end of the year. Basically, everything that can be done virtually will probably continue to be done in that space for as long as possible. It’s just a way to better ensure safety for all parties involved.
At the moment, we also unfortunately do not know when filming for Grey’s Anatomy is going to begin. Our hope is that we’ll have a chance to see it transpire at some point over the next few months, just to ensure that the show can premiere at some point later this year.
