Ellen Pompeo Shares First Pic From 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17; Dedicates The Season To Frontline Healthcare Workers

Ellen Pompeo has shared the first pic from the set of Grey’s Anatomy season 17.

The 51-year-old actress, who has played Dr. Meredith Grey for all of those seasons, shared a snap of her and co-star Richard Flood in PPE on the set.

“First time back in my scrubs… since we shut down filming 7000 healthcare workers have died from Covid,” Ellen captioned the shot.

She added, “I dedicate my season 17 to all who have fallen and to everyone of you who by the grace of God is still standing… this season is for you with humility and a bit of humor to get us through and endless amounts of gratitude.”

“I hope we do you proud 🙏🏼❤️ @greysabc #seasonseventeen @richardfloodofficial.”

Earlier in the year, after Grey’s had shut down production and the pandemic had worsened in the United States, Ellen shared her many thanks to the real medical professionals who were on the front lines.

“;This is my nurses and doctors and all the health-care workers appreciation post,”; Ellen had written. “;Many of us have the privilege to self-quarantine and isolate and try to stay healthy, and none of you have that privilege. You all have to be on the front lines of this thing and what is certainly bad now but will most definitely get worse in the next couple of weeks.”;

The cast of Grey’s also came together for a tribute video for front line responders. Watch that here…
