"Our incredible crew of hardworking men and women who every day from sun up to sundown, busted their ass to make this beautiful art."

The episode the actor directed was Grey's Anatomy Season 17 Episode 11, but it's not set to air until April.

When the ABC series returns after its latest hiatus, it will be another crossover with Station 19.

"Grey’s Anatomy picks up where the previous episode of “Station 19” left off as both teams tend to a tense situation with so much at stake," reads the logline for the March 11 return.

The logline reads:

Meanwhile, Maya leaves Andy in charge for the yearly inspection, and Dean and Vic struggle to cope with the fallout Dean’s traumatic arrest on the return.

As for whether this is the final season of Grey's Anatomy, the jury is still out.

Gianniotti previously teased that this was being looked at as the concluding part of the beloved series, while series lead, Ellen Pompeo recently said that there's no telling whether this is the end of the line.

"I can't say. Can't say," Pompeo said on CBS Sunday Morning late last month.

"We honestly have not decided. We're really trying to figure it out right now."

"It's, what story do we tell? To end a show this iconic, you know, how do we do it?" she added.

"I just want to make sure we do this character and this show and the fans – I want to make sure we do it right."
