Grey’s Anatomy season 17 may be available on ABC, but it looks like we’ll have to wait at least another month for the season to hit Netflix.
On March 24, Netflix showed the entire collection of shows and movies coming to Netflix in April 2021. While the record was packed with a few dozen names, Grey’s Anatomy was missing from the release list, confirming that the show’s current year won’t be arriving on Netflix in April.
It’s disappointing news for aficionados who keep up with all the long-running medical shows through Netflix, but we can’t say we’re surprised.
As good as it may have been to get new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy to Netflix in April 2021, the show is now airing new episodes on ABC with the season still in full swing. Since this season is still set on ABC, this would also explain why year 17 is not coming April 2021.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 Netflix Release Date
So when can Grey’s Anatomy season 17 finally hit Netflix?
At this point, Netflix has not yet announced a release date for season 17; However, the new season of Grey’s Anatomy is unlikely to make its way to Netflix for at least a few more weeks. This is because seasons of Grey’s only appear on Netflix after they air on ABC.
Traditionally, the new seasons of Grey’s Anatomy make their way to Netflix a month after the season finale airs on ABC, which will set the stage for a June release date. If the Season 17 finale airs sometime in May, we’re likely looking at another new June release for the series.
These are all uncertain times, of course, so that we can always understand the fall of the season earlier or later than in the past. For now, we just have to wait to see when ABC plans the Season 17 finale date, which should give us some insight as to when the season will finally make its way to Netflix.
