'Grey's Anatomy' writers to start work on next season soon: showrunner

Los Angeles, May 6 (PTI) 'Grey's Anatomy' showrunner Krista Vernoff says the writers of the series will get together to discuss its 17th season this month through conference call.

The chapter 16 of the long-running medical drama was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic and wrapped up with its episode 21, which aired on April 9.

'I'm going to start up the writers' room in May, but it's going to be a 'Zoom room',' Vernoff told TVLine.

The writer said under normal conditions, the cast and crew would start shooting in July, but they may have to wait considering the COVID-19 outbreak.

'The hope is that we will be able to start production when we usually do, which is in July. But we have to wait and see how this thing plays out, obviously,' she added. PTI RDS RB RB
