Writers' Strike to End Imminently: Grey's Anatomy Slated to Return with New Episodes in April, May

by at . Comments

With an end to the three-month-old WGA strike imminent, the networks have quietly outlined plans to salvage what's left of the current TV season.

TV Guide has a tentative list of what you can expect from Grey's Anatomy and many other shows, although it is certainly subject to change.

Just the same, it looks like we may get 4-5 new Grey's Anatomy episodes out of Season Four yet. They would air in April and May.

I hope you are right too, Gizzie, O'Stevens, whatever you call them, totally rock my world

Greysadiction, i hope you are right about George and Izzie, they are why I watch the show and have no interest in watching without them.

I am fully in touch with reality iheartgaforever, The point is that people believe everything they hear and make assumptions too quickly. The strike is over TODAY. It wasn't over yesterday or the day before. And no, I don't feel stupid, thanks. Since I've actually registered with this forum there's no reason to "GET OUT" really. Maybe you should relax.

iheartGAforever-- thanks for the official word!! It is finally over and we can look forward to our future indulgences!! allaboutsloan-- glad to hear that you are still watching. You have to admit, after cold-reading your previous comment, it sounded hugely negative-- like you were totally done with the show and just switching to Hereos-- which is why I was saying stop posting. I totally understand you getting frustrated-- that makes sense to me. Glad to hear you haven't given up totally. MerDer will be fine. Sloan is a riot to watch. I'm hoping for a good storyline for Christina and, of course, I am hoping for George & Izzie. Nona-- have no fear-- I don't think it's so bad for George & Izzie-- I think that George was 100% on the money when he told Izzie it was just their timing that stunk. I think they will end up together. They have always loved each other so much. It is fun to see the best friends have such possibility and I think Shonda will go there again in time.
I am so looking forward to those new epi's!!

Yes, the strike is officially over now. It's good news. Maybe it's just me, but I really wanted to make sure it was really over after what I heard before I go on celebrating. And think about it this way, had the majority voted no, wouldn't all the early optimism really annoyed or pissed you off? Just something to think about. And this is not directed at anyone in particular.

Meh- you NEED a reality check. IT IS OVER. How stupid do you feel now after talking nonsense three days ago?? They will be back with new episodes in late April or early May. You need to take your negativity elsewhere. If you don't like it here or what people say, GET OUT. It's that simple.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
