With numerous sets already affected by the growing Coronavirus pandemic, ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” has opted to suspend production for at least two weeks.
The cast and crew recently wrapped Episode 21 of the show’s 25-episode 16th season today.
The show’s executive producer/showrunner Krista Vernoff and fellow executive producers Debbie Allen and James Williams made the following announcement to their cast and crew :
To Our Incredible Cast and Crew:
Out of an abundance of caution, production is postponed on Grey’s Anatomy effective immediately. We are going home now for at least two weeks and waiting to see how the coronavirus situation evolves.
This decision was made to ensure the health and safety of the whole cast and crew and the safety of our loved ones outside of work, and it was made in accordance with Mayor Garcetti’s suggestion that we not gather in groups of more than 50.
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay hydrated, stay home as much as possible, and wash your hands frequently. Please take care of yourselves and each other. As updates come in, we will keep you informed.
Thank you for all that you do!
Krista, Debbie, & James
Several other shows, like “Grace & Frankie” and “Carnival Row” have also shut down.
