Grey’s Anatomy, which has lasted so long that diehard fans now have grey hair, is up for another run with season 103 set to air. However, the writers are reportedly concerned that they need another dose of creativity.
“After making an entire season about chlamydia, each type of Hepatitis, and even inventing a new Hepatitis, we don’t know where to steer this thing,” one writer revealed.
While fans hope that the COVID pandemic might generate new ideas, the writers say they’ve already produced a season based on H1N1—and even a sequel: H1N1 2.
“We might make a spin-off where the doctors become veterinarians. Or a comedic episode where the cast self-diagnoses on WebMD. Or we might get Dr. Oz to make a cameo. Anything to fulfill our contractual obligation of another 70 seasons.”
The iconic show has won 4036 Emmys over its long run, including one for “Most Episodes,” “Highest Cast Retention Rate” and “Most Dead Cast Members.”
