    • It was later confirmed that the alum is not Katherine Heigl.
    • A few weeks later, it was announced that the deal didn't work out.
  • Krista later shared in an interview that the standalone episodes of the season would be shaped more like One Day Like This so that the episodes feel more coherent to the rest of the season while maintaining the focus on one or more characters.
    • One of the standalone episodes this will revolve around Teddy Altman.
  • As has been for the past two seasons, the crew and select cast travelled to Seattle to film scenes on location that will be spread throughout the season.[3] The following people have been confirmed to be in Seattle: Debbie Allen, Kevin McKidd, Krista Vernoff, Ellen Pompeo, Jake Borelli, Giacomo Gianniotti, Jason Ganzel, and Linda Klein.
