The medical drama will not resume production to complete its season, the network announced Friday. The episode titled “Put on a Happy Face,” set to air Thursday, April 9, will now serve as the season finale.
The decision comes two weeks after production on Season 16 of “Grey’s Anatomy” was shut down in response to the coronavirus pandemic. In a memo to the show’s cast and crew at the time, the show’s producers said they were “waiting to see how the coronavirus situation evolves.”
“Grey’s Anatomy” is just the latest show to shuffle its schedule in the wake of the production shutdown.
