Grey's Anatomy: Camilla Luddington on season 17 finale
With just five episodes left this season, Grey's hasn't been renewed for season 18. And it turns out even the cast doesn't know the plan just yet. "Jo Wilson" actress Camilla Luddington recently told StyleCaster: "It's not usually this secretive, but this whole season has been very secretive. Usually we have some idea of our finale, but none of us know. It's a big secret."
However, if season 18 happens, Luddington already knows what she'd like to see on-screen: "I think it would be great for us to be at Jo's bar next season and show what life looks like after COVID," she said. This season, the coronavirus has been at the centre of the medical drama.
