If You Love ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ You Might Like These Shows Too
For some of us, there is no such thing as too much Grey’s Anatomy. Even though the show has been on the air for 15 seasons now, the thought of saying goodbye to Meredith Grey is enough to make us want to hyperventilate and hide in a corner in denial.
Sadly, the end is inevitably coming soon. Fifteen seasons is a long time and the show’s star, Ellen Pompeo has already suggested that she may be done at the end of season 16.
While we will savor every last episode until the very end (and probably start from the beginning and watch them all again on Netflix), it means it is time to start looking for a show to help us transition to a time with no Grey’s. So without further ado, here are four shows to watch if you just can’t picture your life without Grey’s Anatomy.
You can’t have a list about shows for Grey’s Anatomy fans without featuring at least one Shondaland show. Station 19 is the first of two shows by Shonda Rhimes to make the list.
Station 19 takes place in Seattle, just like Grey’s. The show follows the local fire department and the lives of the people that work there.
Station 19 is a spin-off of Grey’s Anatomy and as such stars a former series regular of the show. Ben Warren joined Station 19 after he left his position as a surgeon at Grey-Sloan Memorial. He is new to the ranks and assimilating with his new group of co-workers at the station.
The employees of Station 19 frequently deliver patients to Grey-Sloan, meaning there are plenty of crossovers to make fans of Grey’s happy. Station 19
The premiere of 9-1-1 features glaring similarities to our favorite medical drama. Within the first 30 seconds of the show’s first episode, we have a cast member narrating the show, and oh, her mother also happens to have Alzheimer’s. Sound familiar?
9-1-1 follows the lives of first responders as they struggle to balance at home emergencies with the emergencies they face every day on the job. Just like Grey’s, the relationships between the characters are forefront, but the on-screen emergencies keep your interest throughout the entire hour.
9-1-1 was just renewed for season 3. The show airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
‘The Good Fight’
The spin-off of The Good Wife features a captivating cast and gripping stories. The Good Fight brings the drama, but in a different way than Grey’s Anatomy. The show’s cases keep up the suspense and the interpersonal relationships between the lawyers draw you in and keep you invested in the show.
One of the great things about The Good Fight that makes it so similar to Grey’s Anatomy is its diversity among its actors and among the characters. The show has a diverse collection of people with various ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and political viewpoints.
Like its predecessor, The Good Fight seamlessly integrates current events into its storylines, making each episode relevant and thought-provoking. The Good Fight is currently in season 3 and airs on CBS All Access.
Scandal is another Shondaland show, and arguably one of the best. The show follows Olivia Pope, a fixer for the rich and elite in Washington D.C. Olivia’s job is to tackle PR nightmares before they make headway and save the careers and reputations of her clients.
But while Olivia is busy fixing other people’s lives, she is involved in the biggest scandal of them all. The show features romance, drama, crime, and in true Shonda Rhimes fashion, some over the top, sometimes hard to believe storylines.
Scandal ended last year after seven explosive seasons. This means you can binge watch all seven seasons right now on Netflix.
