When 'Grey's Anatomy' Returns, It Will Be a Month & A Half Into Coronavirus, Giacomo Gianniotti Says

Giacomo Gianniotti has opened up about the upcoming season of Grey’s Anatomy and revealed just how the show is incorporating their coronavirus storyline.

The showrunner confirmed earlier last month that the series would indeed tackle the pandemic in the new season.

“There’s no way to be a long-running medical show and not do the medical story of our lifetimes,” Krista Vernoff shared at the time.

Now, Giacomo is expanding on that and revealed to fans that when the season starts, Grey Sloan will be a month in a half into the pandemic.

“It’s going to take place a little beyond where we left off in the last season,” Giacomo added. “We might have some flashbacks. We might have some things where we’re referencing last season, just to have context leading up. But we are going to have a little leap when we start this season in terms of time. We’re not picking up right where we left off.”

If you missed it, the series just upped two cast members to series regulars.
