After serving as the head writer and executive producer for Grey’s from seasons one through seven, Krista Vernoff is officially back as showrunner, TV Line has confirmed.
With news that Grey’s most recent showrunner, Stacy McKee, is moving to Shonda Rhimes’ upcoming firefighter spinoff series when it debuts, fans can rest easy with Vernoff at the helm of the veteran drama. The showrunner will reportedly be working alongside Rhimes and her TV partner Betsy Beers this season, beginning with the premiere.
TV Line reports that in addition to being the showrunner this season, Vernoff wrote the season 14 premiere, “Break Down the House,” which is already being filmed in Seattle.
In fact, Vernoff has already shared a few pictures from set — hinting that episode one is already wrapped and ready to go. Can you believe it?!
“That’s a wrap, Seattle! Thank you for the weather and for my sparkle hat! (It’s like a sparkle pager, only hattier!) #GreysAnatomy,” Vernoff captioned a selfie with Kevin McKidd, who played Dr. Owen Hunt.
We can’t wait to see what Vernoff and the rest of the Grey’s Anatomy team has in store for us come this fall! Until then, we will just have to look at the pictures that the cast including Ellen Pompeo, Jesse Williams, and more have been sharing from their current adventures in Seattle.
Grey’s Anatomy returns for season 14 with a two-hour premiere on September 28, 2017 on ABC. For the latest pop culture news and voting, make sure to sign up for the People’s Choice newsletter!
