We’re getting deep into Grey’s Anatomy season 20, which has been the shortest season in the series’ long history. At this point, Grey’s Anatomy is one of the longest-running scripted shows in television history and doesn’t show signs of stopping – ABC has announced that they’ve picked it up for a 21st season to run in 2024-2025 even though they've cancelled the show's spinoff, Station 19. As the current season comes to an end, here is when the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy is scheduled to air.

The 20th season of Grey’s Anatomy premiered on March 14, 2024, but, due to the Hollywood strikes of 2023, was set to be the shortest season of the medical drama to date. At just 10 episodes, the end of the season is already rapidly approaching.

The next episode of Grey’s Anatomy is set to run on:

  • Grey’s Anatomy season 20 episode 10 'Burn It Down' – May 30, 2024

After that, it will be several months before Grey’s Anatomy returns for its 21st season in Fall 2024. That season will be the second season with Meg Marinis as the showrunner, who took over from Krista Vernoff after season 19. It will also mark the third season with star Ellen Pompeo taking a more scaled-back role in the series – she only appeared in four episodes of season 20 despite remaining a series regular and providing voiceovers for each episode.
