ABC – Confirmed The Show For Season 20 Even After Several Series Regulars Exited The Show In Season 19.
This slew of exits, including the show’s lead Ellen Pompeo, caused fans to believe that the show might soon be canceled. However, as opposed to the speculations, ABC renewed the show for another season.
For Season 19’s two-hour finale episode, Pompeo and Kelly McCreary returned in their respective roles to reconnect with their on-and-off lovers.
While Winston and Maggie hooked up and finally decided to stay married yet apart, Nick and Meredith talked things out, hinting at their future together living in Boston.
Whether or not Pompeo will be a part of Season 20 remains unknown. However, the actress did leave the possibility open for any cameos on the show in the future. Even after exiting the show as the lead, she still enjoys a chair on the BTS team as the show’s narrator and executive producer.
Additionally, Season 19 introduced 5 new faces adding to the storyline and hinting that the series is here to stay. These cast members, including Alexis Floyd, Midori Francis, Harry Shum Jr., Niko Terho, and Adelaide Kane, are expected to star in Season 20 as well.
Given that Season 19 only ended a few days ago, it is still early to say when the upcoming season will premiere on ABC. However, if everything works right without any unexpected delays, the show will tentatively premiere sometime in September 2023.
