Grey’s Anatomy: All The Seasons Ranked From Worst To Best

  
Slide 1 of 7 | View On One Page

For nearly 14 full seasons, Grey’s Anatomy has been taking fans on a wild ride of highs and lows, great romances, and tragic goodbyes — and right now there is still no word on when the show will be ending. Each season has offered something new to fans, but it all circles back to some central characters and major storylines, and after so many seasons it isn’t surprising that not every season has been spectacular. It is hard to remember everything that has happened at Seattle Grace/ Seattle Grace Mercy West/Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital over the years, so take a look back at all of the seasons so far ranked from worst to best:

13. Season Four

Season four of Grey’s Anatomy ran from September 27, 2007 to May 22, 2008 and marked the beginning of major cast changes for the series. Although the season provided some very memorable episodes and included the introduction of Meredith’s half-sister Lexie, it lands at the last spot on this list because the writer’s strike that year cut the season short. Along with some of the good things from the season such as Derek and Meredith getting back together and Meredith’s grand gesture of building the candle house, it also included the cringe-worthy George and Izzie hookup. Season four of Grey’s wasn’t completely awful but ultimately fans will never know how much better or worse it would have because it never had a full episode slate like the rest of the seasons.

12. Season Ten

The tenth season of Grey’s Anatomy had fans reeling from the fallout of the super storm which saw the death of Heather Brooks, the recovery of Dr. Webber and a strained relationship between Cristina and Meredith. Overall, the season left fans feeling disappointed and empty with storylines that made us roll our eyes. From Miranda Bailey’s random OCD (which is not something that simply comes and goes) and Jackson and April finally realizing they want to be together and running away at April’s wedding to Matthew, it was one of the worst seasons because at the end everyone had to say goodbye to Cristina Yang. After 10 seasons, Grey’s had begun to lose even some of its most passionate fans and with Sandra Oh’s character being one of the strongest components of the series, the loss of her cut deep for longtime viewers who had hung on.
