Since the beginning, Grey's Anatomy has always been worth watching live. With all the massive hospital calamities, shocking character deaths, and intense love stories that have played out over the course of its 15 seasons (with two more on the way), the best way to steer clear of spoilers has been to see the show as it airs in real time or avoid the internet at all costs on Thursday evenings.
Not everyone has been able to check out the Shondaland staple in real time, though. The good news for newcomers to
Seattle Grace Mercy West Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is that Grey's Anatomy is one of the ultimate binges, packed with so many crazy medical procedures and doctor dramas that the show never seems to get old.
For viewers who are finally ready to find out what all the fuss is about -- or just revisit Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and friends' journey from the beginning -- it'll take two streaming subscriptions to see all 15 seasons of Grey's Anatomy in one binge session. The first 14 seasons are currently available on Netflix, while Season 15 is available at Hulu. Of course, if you're starting from the beginning, you may not reach Season 15 until it arrives on Netflix on June 15 anyway. Meanwhile, all of the seasons are also available for purchase or paid streaming at Amazon Prime Video.
Fans should prepare to set aside a lot of time to watch Grey's Anatomy all the way through. The series recently surpassed ER to become the longest-running medical drama in TV history, with 342 episodes, five specials, and three webisode series under its scrubs belt so far.
Grey's Anatomy will return to ABC this fall for Season 16, airing Thursdays at 8/7c.
