Debbie Allen says ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 17 premiere is “going to blow the fans away”

Debbie Allen says the seventeenth season of Grey’s Anatomy won’t hold back any punches when it returns tonight for its two-hour premiere.

Allen, who stars as Dr. Catherine Fox on the show, tells ABC Audio that fans should expect the unexpected on  the heart-stopping return of the series.

“Grey’s Anatomy season 17 is going to blow the audience and the fans away,” she says. “That’s all I can tell you.”

Although Allen, who also serves as one of the show’s directors, is not offering any details on what fans will see, she does offer a brief explanation as to why you “don’t [want to] miss it.” 

“Everybody’s in it,” she reveals.

“You’re going to see things you don’t think you’re going to see,” Allen teases.

Grey’s Anatomy season 17 kicks off tonight with a two-hour premiere starting at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
