The 16th season of Grey's Anatomy will be cut short.

Production on the series went on a hiatus for two weeks earlier in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ABC Network announced on Thursday that the finale of the long-running medical drama has been moved up to 9 April - the original date was 16 May - with the 21st episode as the season's finale, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Episode 21 - titled Put on a Happy Face - was the last one completed before the production went on a break.

Grey's Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff wrote on Twitter that they are disappointed that they cannot complete the storytelling this season, but that episode 21 is a satisfying finale.
