Grey's Anatomy fans can get ready for an all new season of love and medicine at Grey Sloan Memorial.

ABC announced its 2024 mid-season premiere dates on Wednesday, including the return of the beloved medical drama for its landmark 20th season.

Grey's is set to see some major changes next year: Season 20 will be the first not to feature Ellen Pompeo's title character Meredith Grey as a series regular. The actress scaled back her role in season 19 but will remain as an executive producer on the series moving forward — though she'll still provide the show's signature opening and closing voiceovers each episode.
