Grey’s Anatomy season 18 is not coming to Netflix in August 2021

It’s no secret that after almost two decades on the air, Grey’s Anatomy is one of the most beloved shows of all time. And in turn, it’s certainly one of the most popular shows on Netflix each time a new season drops. But when will Grey’s Anatomy season 18 come to Netflix?

After a bit of uncertainty regarding the future of the hit medical drama, ABC confirmed that Grey’s Anatomy would return for its eighteenth season this fall. Although the long-running series lost a few cast members recently, star Ellen Pompeo will be back as Meredith Grey.

But when will the latest season of Grey’s Anatomy hit your screen? Most importantly, when will season 18 start streaming on Netflix for its millions of fans to binge-watch? We’re sharing everything we know about the upcoming season’s premiere date and Netflix release date.

Unfortunately, the new season won’t be arriving in August 2021 per the complete list of new release movies and shows, but we weren’t expecting the season to premiere at all this month. Here’s when to set your DVR and get ready to binge season 18.

Grey’s Anatomy season 18 premiere date

Last month, ABC announced the fall premiere dates for its new and returning series, including Grey’s Anatomy season 18. The veteran medical drama will premiere season 18 on Thursday, Sept. 30 at 9/8c. Grey’s airs between Station 19 and Big Sky.

Grey’s Anatomy was one of the few series that wasn’t significantly delayed in the wake of the pandemic as season 17 managed to premiered in November 2020. And with Grey’s Anatomy season 18 back in its usual September perch, the series is back on track.

When is Grey’s Anatomy season 18 coming to Netflix?

Unfortunately for Netflix binge-watchers who love to get their Grey’s Anatomy fix, the newest season won’t arrive on your watch list until 2022. New seasons of Grey’s are usually added to Netflix 30 days after their televised finale.

Since season 18 hasn’t yet premiered on ABC as of August 2021, it’s hard to predict exactly when the new season will start streaming on Netflix. However, because the season debuts in September, we can assume it will come to Netflix in May or June like normal.

Be sure to watch Grey’s Anatomy season 18 when it premieres this fall on ABC and will also be available to stream new episodes on Hulu. Stay tuned for more Grey’s Anatomy news and updates from Netflix Life!
