Filming for the 17th season of Grey's Anatomy is starting up again after a 6 month hiatus due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Star of the show Ellen Pompeo (who plays Meredith Grey), made a tribute to real life health workers on her Instagram as she gears up for filming.

"First time back in my scrubs... Since we shut down filming 7000 healthcare workers have died from Covid." she wrote on Instagram.

"I dedicate my season 17 to all who have fallen and to everyone of you who by the grace of God is still standing... This season is for you with humility and a bit of humor to get us through and endless amounts of gratitude. I hope we do you proud."

We're not entirely sure when this new season will premiere, but we do know that there will be a focus on Covid-19.
