Grey’s Anatomy season 17: Netflix delivers disappointing release date update

Grey’s Anatomy fans will have to continue waiting for Grey’s Anatomy season 17 to drop on Netflix, as it’s sadly been confirmed the seventeenth season of ABC’s medical drama won’t be coming to Netflix in May 2021.

While Grey’s Anatomy is not a Netflix Original, there is no denying the show is one of the most-watched series on Netflix which has helped to breathe new life into the long-running series. As such, fans are always anxious to know when the latest season will come to Netflix for their binging enjoyment.

With the season nearing its end, many fans had been hoping Grey’s Anatomy season 17 would arrive on Netflix sometime in May; however, Netflix dashed those hopes when revealing its May release schedule. Sure the May schedule is full of several incredible shows and movies, but Grey’s Anatomy was not among the titles coming next month.

So when exactly might season 17 finally make its way to Netflix and why isn’t the season coming in May 2021?

When is Grey’s Anatomy season 17 coming to Netflix?

Typically, the newest season of Grey’s Anatomy arrives roughly one month after it finishes airing on ABC. Because season 17 is still underway on ABC, Netflix subscribers will need to wait until the season has come to a conclusion.

At the moment, ABC has not yet confirmed when the season 17 finale will air, but it seems likely the finale will air sometime in late May. Should the season come to a close in May as anticipated, fans should be able to look forward to Grey’s Anatomy season 17 releasing on Netflix sometime in June 2021.

Once ABC sets a finale date, we’ll have a better idea of when the new season will release on Netflix as the season tends to release on Netflix one month after the finale has aired.

In the meantime, fans can enjoy the 16 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy currently streaming on Netflix.
