The new episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” will start on ProSieben next Wednesday. At the start, the series swaps its broadcasting slot once.

At the start of the season, the series “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Seattle Firefighters” are celebrating a cross-over event. ProSieben will therefore show the “Seattle Firefighters” once on Wednesday (April 28) at 8:15 pm, followed by the premiere of the 17th season “Grey’s Anatomy” at 9:15 pm.

The exchange of transmission slots results from the events in the respective episodes: A group of teenagers accidentally sets off a devastating wildfire. The team from Station 19 moves out and takes the seriously injured teenagers to the Gray Sloan Memorial, where they are welcomed by Meredith (Ellen Pompeo, 51) and her team.

On the following Wednesday of the series (May 5th) “Grey’s Anatomy” will take over primetime, while the new episode of the fourth season “Seattle Firefighters” will follow at 9:15 pm. The new episodes of the two US series have been available on the Joyn streaming service since April 21, one week before the TV broadcast.

Season 17 “Grey’s Anatomy”: That’s what it’s about

Showrunner Krista Vernoff (49) put the corona pandemic at the top of the shooting schedule for the 17th season. The eponymous Dr. Meredith Gray (Ellen Pompeo) is fighting Covid-19 and sees people from her past on the magical beach of the series. The creators caused excitement in the US broadcast in recent months with some guest appearances by popular ex-characters. For example, Patrick Dempsey (55) returned as Dr. Derek Shepherd alias “McDreamy” and TR Knight (48) as Dr. George O’Malley back.
