The medical drama Grey's Anatomy will be taking on the COVID-19 pandemic in its upcoming season, according to People. "There’s no way to be a long-running medical show and not do the medical story of our lifetimes," executive producer Krista Vernoff says. Vernoff says that the show's writers have already been talking with real life doctors as they do every year, but the talks for Season 17 have been different. "It has felt more like therapy...[the doctors] are literally shaking and trying not to cry, they’re pale, and they’re talking about it as war — a war that they were not trained for." Shooting for the upcoming season remains postponed because of the coronavirus, so there is not yet a date when these stories will be told.
