The 16th season of Grey's Anatomy will be cut short. It's titled "Put On a Happy Face", and it was originally supposed to be followed by four more episodes this season.

The network's decision comes just two weeks after ABC announced "Grey's Anatomy" was one of several of its productions that would be halted as the number of infected citizens with COVID-19 has surged around the globe. At the time, the hiatus was going to be for at least two weeks.

The ABC drama series is joining the likes of other medical and emergency service based shows such as The Good Doctor, Station 19, and The Resident, who are offering necessary supplies to hospitals in the United States and Canada amid the Covid-19 outbreak.


According toThe Hollywood Reporter, season 16 will wrap up with its episode 21, scheduled to be aired on 9 April. The announcement confirmed that the series' star, Ellen Pompeo, is set to stay on board through Season 17. The showrunner expressed her disappointment. And ultimately, the Shondaland series isn't done, as it still has plenty of stories to tell in Grey's Anatomy Season 17.

'We are disappointed that we don't get to complete our storytelling this season. "The good news? 1621 plays like a satisfying finale!" she tweeted. It's not where we planned to end, but it's handsome & the questions that linger we will answer next year.

Vernoff later added: "To be clear: there are still two Season 16 episodes left to air!"


Grey's Anatomy was created and is produced by Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, How to escape murder) Betsy Beers (Scandal, How to escape murder) Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan), Krista Vernoff (Shameless), William Harper, Zoanne Clack, Debbie Allen and Fred Einesman are executive producers.
