Fans across social media are confused, after some articles have given the incorrect date for the “Grey’s Anatomy” season finale. Some publications and writers have stated the Season 13 finale will be tonight, April 13, 2017. That is certainly not true, but Shonda Rhimes has given some details of the upcoming finale, saying that it will be “on fire.”

What is the true date of the “Grey’s Anatomy” season 13 finale? It’s time to find out the truth about the season finale set by ABC, so you can prepare for the few months of no new episodes.

Tonight is definitely not the season finale of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 13

Fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The show is not wrapping up its current season with this week’s episode. There is still more to come for the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial in the coming weeks. However, there will be a one-week break next week, according to TV Guide. Many other TV shows are taking a week off next week, suggesting that they’re getting ready for the month of Neilsen ratings that are collected to determine the viability of shows for the next fall season.

ABC has confirmed that the “Grey’s Anatomy” season 13 finale will take place on May 18, 2017. It will be the 24th episode of the season, which is normal for a season of the show.

Still far more stories to wrap before the season end

If this week was the end for the season, it would be a very odd and anti-climatic end to the year. There are many stories that have started but need wrapping up, and it looks like this week’s episode will be fully set in the plane that Meredith and Riggs will be on—there is going to be some type of disaster on the plane, but it is unlikely to crash.

Dr. Stephanie Edwards is set to leave the show, after actress Jerrika Hinton stated she was leaving. This story needs to be told before the season ends, but seems to be in the middle of it right now. Fans also need to find out what will happen with Richard Webber and Eliza Minnick, as now it seems like the war in the hospital is coming to an end.

There is also a storyline involving Jo Wilson, Alex Karev, and Andrew DeLuca that needs to finish playing out.

“Grey’s Anatomy” season 13 continues tonight with episode 20. There will be four more episodes after this week’s episode. They start their run from April 27, 2017 and will continue each week until the season finale. This will hopefully wrap up enough of the stories, and will be an episode to keep you on the edges of your seats.
