Returning to the hallowed halls of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, it's been revealed that we've got at least another two years of this tug-on-your-heart-strings medical drama as Grey's Anatomy gets the greenlight for another two seasons. Arriving back at its usual Thursday slot, here's how to watch Grey's Anatomy season 18 online where you are.

Tackling both the pandemic and the racial injustices of 2020, last season also saw the departure of some of the show's regulars, including Dr Jackson Avery (Jessie Williams) and Dr Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). Out with the old and in with the new (or old familiar faces, anyway), Kate Walsh will be reprising her role as Addison Montgomery in season 18, a return that will delight dedicated Grey's fans.

Of course, the new season also promises to answer many questions left unanswered, including what is next for Meredith now she is well again - will her and Dr Hayes make a go of it? There's also the state of affairs of Amelia and Link to think about after she refused his proposal.

Tackling a familiar timeframe as we live in a tenuous post-pandemic world, Grey's Anatomy promises to be as drama-filled and heart-breaking as ever. Make sure you soak up every last dose with a new Grey's Anatomy episode airing at 9pm ET / PT every Thursday from September 30.
