Seriously, look at that tagline! Even the creators are like "OK... where do we go from here!?"
Welcome to the official thread of Grey's Anatomy, Season 16!
Season 16 premieres on ABC on September 26th, 2019. In terms of viewers, season 15 had the lowest premiere of any Grey's season (6.81 million) and the lowest finale of any Grey's season (5.99 million). For reference, Grey's had a premiere of 25.41 million viewers and a finale of 22.57 millions viewers during season 3. However, season 15 had an overall rank of #27, which was better than seasons 7, 8, and 11. Also, the important 18-49 demographic had Grey's season 15 at #8... which is probably the key for keeping Grey's going into future seasons.
Only four major characters are still with the show from the original season:
Dr. Miranda Bailey
Dr. Meredith Grey
Dr. Alex Karev
Dr. Richard Weber
If you haven't tuned in for a few seasons, well, it's gonna look a little different. Oh, and a bunch of the characters that aren't here anymore are gone because they died... so they can't come back at all. Grey's Anatomy has been killing fools since before Game of Thrones made it cool... but the good news is, some old characters that have left the show have returned in the last few seasons, so you may see some familiar faces once more.
