Further extending its reign as TV’s longest-running medical drama in primetime, Grey’s Anatomy season 20 marks a continued renaissance for the show.

When Ellen Pompeo’s Dr. Meredith Grey left Seattle in season 19, fans were wondering how the show could continue. After all, Meredith was the last surviving original intern at Grey Sloan Memorial, and the show is literally called Grey’s Anatomy. However, the series found its footing with fans by introducing a whole new crop of interns, in many ways, placing their lives at the forefront of the drama.

So what happens next in the show’s historic run? Here’s everything we know about Grey’s Anatomy season 20.

Next episode of Grey’s Anatomy season 20

Grey’s Anatomy is back with a brand-new episode.

The episode titled "Never Felt So Alone" airs on Thursday, April 11, at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC. Here's a brief synopsis of what's to come:

"It’s all hands on deck at Grey Sloan when a group of medical students is injured by a floor collapsing at their white coat party. Jo and Link are forced to talk about the future, while Jules confronts Winston about his attitude."
