With the actor’s strike coming to an end, Disney’s ABC has revealed that the hit show “Grey’s Anatomy” and its spin-off series, “Station 19”, will return with a new season on Thursday, 14th March 2024 on ABC, with new episodes available the next day on Hulu.
Because the writer’s strike was resolved at the end of September, scripts for the upcoming season have already begun taking shape, plus according to Deadline the new seasons of each show will feature fewer episodes due to the delays from the strikes, with just ten episodes each.
With these new seasons, there will also be some further changes, as the new schedule shows “Grey’s Anatomy” will start at 9 pm, followed by “Station 19” at 10 pm.
Following Krista Vernoff leaving her role as showrunner for both shows at the end of the last season, each show now has a new showrunner and will no longer be as interconnected as they once were.
Over the past few seasons, the two shows were much more interconnected. Where the firefighters of “Station 19” would attend an accident, which would then lead to some hospital treatment in “Grey’s Anatomy”, but now they’ll become more separated moving forward. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was still some interconnected storylines, but much less.
Internationally, in many countries, both shows are also released exclusively on Disney+, but no international release date has yet been announced, though previous seasons usually had a few week’s delay before being released, and we are probably unlikely to hear a confirmed date for Australia or the UK until much nearer the time of release in the United States.
In December, Hulu on Disney+ will be launching in the United States, offering Hulu and Disney streaming bundle customers access to selected content within Disney+, so expect to see both shows featured when the new seasons drop. Especially since Netflix still has a long-standing contract for “Grey’s Anatomy”, I’d only expect the latest season to be available.
