Grey’s Anatomy, the longest-running ABC show of all time, is about to conclude its run on ABC and is headed to Netflix US in June 2022.
Debuting on September 30th 2021, the new season of Grey’s Anatomy consists of 20 episodes and runs through to the end of May 2022.
This season also notably sees the departure of some mainstays of the series including Jesse Williams, Giacomo Gianniotti, and Greg Germann. It’s not all bad news, however, Kate Walsh notably returned for a cameo in season 18.
When will Grey’s Anatomy S18 be on Netflix in the US?
The good news is that the Grey’s Anatomy release schedule on Netflix has been very consistent over the years. Therefore, we can give a pretty accurate prediction as to when season 18 will be on Netflix.
Every season for the past few years has arrived in either May (in the case of season 16), June, or at the latest July (as was the case with season 17).
Last year, season 17 arrived exactly a month after it had finished wrapping.
We were once again expecting the show to be available in the US between June and July 2022 (we had predicted June 23rd but were a few days out). We’ve now had that confirmed with season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy confirmed to be hitting Netflix US on June 25th, 2022
Is Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix internationally?
Originally we expected Netflix in Latin America, Canada, and some Asian regions to receive season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy around the same time as the United States in 2022.
However, that no longer looks to be the case as we’ve been alerted that the series is, in fact, leaving Netflix internationally. As we reported, a number of big Disney shows (mostly through the 20th Television banner) are leaving Netflix internationally on January 1st, 2022. That includes every season of Grey’s Anatomy leaving on January 1st.
If you’re outside these regions, it’s highly unlikely Netflix will carry the show going forward. Instead, Disney has opted to make the series available as part of the Disney+ Star offering.
Will Grey’s Anatomy be leaving Netflix?
Despite numerous reports, it doesn’t appear that Grey’s Anatomy will be departing Netflix anytime soon. Disney (the parent company of ABC) has mostly pulled back its content from Netflix but its looks as though the legacy deal struck for Grey’s Anatomy will keep it streaming for the foreseeable.
It’s also worth noting that the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice departed Netflix US in December 2021 after two years.
If you’re looking for some more Shonda Rhimes magic on Netflix, you’ve got a few other options now. Bridgerton has been the biggest show to debut from Shondaland thus far but The Chair is also a solid title to watch given the inclusion of Sandra Oh.
