Showrunner Krista Vernoff confirmed to Deadline this long break was due to fewer episodes in season 17.
She said: “The show isn’t back until, I think, March.
“But that’s because we just have a reduced number of episodes this year because of how late we came back to production.”
As well as this, the future of the season has been put in jeopardy by the rising rates of Covid-19 around the world.

However, it seems the show is now up and running once again, confirmed by executive producer Debbie Allen.
