‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 10, ‘Scandal’ season 3, and a writers room tease

Grey's Anatomy Season 9Even though “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” may be extremely different when it comes to content, they do at least share one thing in common: Executive producer Shonda Rhimes and her Shondaland company. Thanks to this, the two do at least share a few similarities when it comes to their production schedules.

In a new post on her official Twitter account Friday, Rhimes confirmed that the writers room for both shows have been shut down temporarily in order to give the writers a much-needed break leading up to the start of production in over a month. After all, a break is certainly something that they will need. Working on a serialized drama, especially one that runs 22, or in the case of “Grey’s Anatomy” 24, episode is not an easy task: It’s long hours, constant stress, and you have to be at the top of your creative game just about every day.

Just in case you want a vague and very-general tease at what is coming up for at least one of these shows, check out what writer / producer / director Tony Phelan had to say:

“Grey’s Writers Room shuts down for hiatus. Get ready – cause there’s a whole mess of drama coming in Ep. 1001-1003 & then … the 200th ep!”

When you think for a second about how few shows manage to make it to the 200-episode threshold, you know that this is an accomplishment that is really worth of a very big (and very dramatic) episode. Hopefully, “Grey’s Anatomy” will have something for us that checks off both boxes, and makes us excited for the rest of the season ahead.
