Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo shares first look pic from season 17 set as cast delve into coronavirus storyline

GREY'S Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo has shared a first look picture from the season 17 set as the cast delve into a coronavirus storyline.

The actress, who plays Meredith Grey in the hit ABC medical drama, took to Instagram this week to share a picture from the set with co-star Richard Flood, who plays Cormac Hayes.

The pair were seen in their medical scrubs and both wore face masks as they posed together for the picture.

Ellen captioned it: "First time back in my scrubs. Since we shut down filming 7000 healthcare workers have died from Covid.

"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."

Her touching post comes days after revealed deleted scenes from season 16 episodes would feature in season 17.

Season 16 was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, and it was then revealed that season 17 would begin with a time jump.

Fans were left convinced the final episodes of season 16 would be lost forever, however, showrunner Krista Vernoff has now confirmed some of the material from those episodes will make it to air in the new season.

She told TVLine: "In even the best of times, a television writer’s primary job is to know how to pivot.

"We are not working to protect stories we had [planned] for the end of Season 16. That said, you will get to see some of the immediate moments from where we left off."

She added: "There was great material that we had already shot but did not get a chance to air [so] we found a way to build it into our premiere."
