Is “Grey’s Anatomy” on tonight (February 2, 2023)? NO. Instead, ABC is broadcasting the finale of “Celebrity Jeopardy” on Thursday night with Will Wheaton, Patton Oswalt and Ike Barinholtz. TV’s longest-running medical drama is currently in the midst of a three-month hiatus and will return on February 23 for an hour titled “I’ll Follow the Sun.” That episode will feature a tearful goodbye to lead actress Ellen Pompeo, who is leaving the program after 19 years — though she’s expected to return for the finale. Watch the Season 19, Episode 7 video trailer above and read on for everything to know about “Grey’s Anatomy.”
