Grey's Anatomy showrunner promises fans a 'satisfying finale' after season 16 is cut short

Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff assured fans this Friday that they will get a ‘satisfying finale’ to the current season.

Season 16 will end four episodes early after production was suspended two weeks ago amid the coronavirus outbreak.

‘We are disappointed that we don’t get to complete our storytelling this season. The good news? 1621 plays like a satisfying finale!’ wrote Krista, 46, on Twitter Friday.

‘It’s not where we planned to end, but it’s beautiful & the questions that linger we will answer next year. #GreysAnatomy #StayHome,’ she added.

Her tweet was accompanied by a GIF of some Grey’s Anatomy cast members dancing at the hospital while in character as medical staff.

Production was halted just after episode 21 had wrapped and while initially it was going to be a two week hiatus, it’s now been made permanent for season 16, which was to have a total of 25 episodes.

It means that the remaining four episodes will not be filmed for the current season and the finale episode will be #1621, titled ‘Put on a happy face’.

'#StayHome': 'It’s not where we planned to end, but it’s beautiful & the questions that linger we will answer next year,' she added

In an Instagram post the 50-year-old said: ‘Hey everybody. This is my nurses and doctors and all of healthcare workers appreciation post.

‘Many of us have the privilege to self-quarantine and isolate and try to stay healthy, and none of you have that privilege.

‘You all have to be on the front lines of this thing and what is certainly bad now but will most definitely get worse in the next couple of weeks.’

She added: ‘So this is just from me and my family to all of you to say thank you. We appreciate you, we love you. Stay safe.

‘Nurses rock, doctors rock, and anyone who works in a hospital or the healthcare industry, you rock. We love you. Stay safe.’
