Grey’s Anatomy season 17 may be available on ABC, but it seems we’re going to have to wait at least another month for the season to fall on Netflix.
On March 24, Netflix showed the full collection of shows and films coming to Netflix in April 2021. While the record was full of a few dozen names, Grey’s Anatomy was missing from the release list hence confirming the show’s current year will not be arriving on Netflix in April.
It’s disappointing news for lovers who keep up with all the long-running medical shows via Netflix, but we can’t say we are surprised.
As good as it might have been to get new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix in April 2021, the show is now airing new episodes on ABC using the season very much still underway. Because this season is still unfolding on ABC, this would also explain why year 17 won’t be coming in April 2021.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 Netflix Release Date
So just when may Grey’s Anatomy season 17 finally fall on Netflix?
At this time, Netflix hasn’t yet announced a release date for season 17; however, it is unlikely we’ll see the new season of Grey’s Anatomy create its way to Netflix for at least a couple more weeks. This is because seasons of Grey’s don’t arrive on Netflix until after they’ve finished airing on ABC.
Traditionally, the new seasons of Grey’s Anatomy make their way to Netflix a month following the season finale has aired on ABC which will establish the stage for a June release date. If the season 17 finale broadcast sometime in May, we’d probably be looking at yet another June release for the series.
Of course, all these are uncertain times so that we can always understand the season fall earlier than or later than in the past. For the time being, we’ll only have to wait to see when ABC schedules the season 17 finale date for which ought to give us some insight on when the season will finally make its way to Netflix.
