Why Grey's Anatomy is filming in Seattle for season 14
Grey’s Anatomy is returning home.
Sorry to ruin the TV magic, but despite being set in Seattle, Grey’s Anatomy actually films in Los Angeles. However, the cast of the long-running medical drama has been spotted filming in Seattle this month.
While ABC is playing coy on specifics, EW hears they’re not necessarily shooting just for the season 14 premiere, which is apparently titled “Break Down the House.” The show is actually shooting multiple exteriors to be used throughout the season, which will continue production in Los Angeles next week. (Alas, the trek north isn’t tied to the upcoming firefighter-themed Grey’s Anatomy spinoff, nor is the trip specifically tied to the upcoming landmark 300th episode.)
So far, it appears at least Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), Justin Chambers (Alex Karev), Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery), Jason George (Ben Warren), and Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson) have been spotted, though more castmembers could also be on hand. Additionally, Debbie Allen, who is both an executive producer and plays Dr. Catherine Avery on the show, was seen.
Grey’s Anatomy will return for a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
