Is There A New Grey's Anatomy Episode On Tonight? (April 14, 2022)

In March of 2021, "Grey's Anatomy" showrunner Krista Vernoff revealed in an interview that the show's then-current 17th season could have been its last. "Grey's Anatomy" Season 1 premiered in 2005, after which the show continued at an average rate of a season per yer. The series concluding, then, would have ended a streak of more than 15 years continuously on the air.

Fortunately for the "Grey's Anatomy" fanbase, a new season began shortly after the Season 17 finale. Season 18, which premiered in September of 2021, is currently in the midst of airing, with new episodes premiering on Thursday nights. Unlike Season 17, during which the prospect of the show ending for good was a possibility, present day viewers can rest assured that the show will be back for more, as a 19th season is already confirmed.

Habitual "Grey's Anatomy" viewers, however, should take note — tonight, on April 14, will mark an interruption to the show's usual broadcast schedule.

There will not be a new episode of Grey's Anatomy on April 14, 2022

According to ABC's online schedule, "Grey's Anatomy" will air in its typical 9 pm/8 pm central timeslot on Thursday, April 14. In fact, "Grey's Anatomy" will run for two hours in total, beginning an hour earlier than usual. That said, ABC will not air a new episode, but "Freedom" Parts 1 and 2, which are the final two episodes of Season 4.

While regular viewers eager for what's next in the show's ongoing storylines may have to wait one week longer than normal, "Freedom Part 2" is arguably one of the 30 best episodes of "Grey's Anatomy" from throughout its entire run. So, nostalgic fans or even more recent viewers who didn't catch this pair of episodes the first time around may nevertheless have something to look forward to watching.

While ABC has yet to release a broadcast schedule for next Thursday, a new episode of "Grey's Anatomy" will likely air next week, on April 21, in its usual timeslot.
