ABC’s medical drama is currently one of the longest-running scripted series on broadcast, and it has seen new seasons added to Netflix in two countries, the United States and Canada. The 20th season recently wrapped up its broadcast run and is coming to Netflix in the US in late June 2024.

Running since 2005, the long-running ABC series was given a season 20 order in March 2023 with the news that Meg Marinis would be taking over as the showrunner from Krista Vernoff, who has helmed the series since season 16.

James Pickens Jr., Chandra Wilson, Kevin McKidd, Kim Raver, and Caterina Scorsone were all part of the big returning ensemble cast for the 20th anniversary season. As you may have heard, the show has been handed a season 21 renewal, too, although expect some cast changes.

When will Season 20 of Grey’s Anatomy be on ABC?

It took a little while longer than normal for Grey’s to return to ABC for season 20 and had a notable episode count cut too.

As you may have heard, both the WGA and SAG-AFTRA are currently on strike, with Grey’s being one of the shows impacted. Production on the show was due to get underway in the Summer of 2023, but the strikes have meant that it is pushed further down the line.

As a result, the show was missing its usual Fall slot on ABC, as confirmed by the schedule released by the network in August.

Instead, the 10 episode 20th season aired from March 14th through May 30th, 2024.

When will Season 20 of Grey’s Anatomy be on Netflix?

The series continues to be added to Netflix via an old output deal the streamer used to have with ABC, whereby it licensed most of the scripted television from the network. That deal hasn’t been in place for a long time now, with Grey’s being the only title still being added.

Some have speculated that Disney would buy Netflix out of the arrangement over the past few years, but that has never come to pass. Instead, in December 2023, it was announced that Netflix would share the older seasons with Hulu, which up until that point had only had the new seasons for a fixed period of time.

So when will all 10 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy season 20 be on Netflix? It’s confirmed that they’ll be arriving in the US on June 29th, 2024.

While waiting, Netflix subscribers in the United States (and most international countries) have been treated in 2023 to another well-reviewed medical drama. We’re referring to the NBC series New Amsterdam, which saw its first four seasons added in the early stages of the year and the fifth season added in September 2023.
