Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Will Depict The War Against The Coronavirus Pandemic
The drama series Grey's Anatomy has been on ABC for 15 years and tells about the work of doctors. According to producer Krista Vernoff, it would be strange if the medical series bypassed the most important topic of recent times, related to medicine.
During a recent video conference organized by the American Academy of television, Krista Vernoff told how the work on the 17th season of the series is going. Because of the quarantine, filming has not yet begun, but the writers have more time to work on the season. And now, the focus is on writing stories related to the coronavirus pandemic. Vernoff says:
Every year, doctors come to us and tell their stories. As a rule, it's something funny or crazy, but this year everything has changed. Our meetings became more like psychotherapy. The doctors remember their experiences, shake, and try not to burst into tears. They speak of the coronavirus as a war they were not prepared for.
Many people remember Owen Hunt (a character in the series, who served as a military doctor in Iraq). The fact is that he is more prepared for the new realities than the other doctors from the series. It seems to me that now is the right time to tell some of these stories. We only constantly discuss how to keep the humor and romance inherent in our series, while we talk about such painful things.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is unclear how many episodes Grey's Anatomy Season 17 would contain, and when will its release date.
