5 TV Shows Like Grey’s Anatomy That Will Shatter Your Heart

If you like Grey's Anatomy, then you need to see these popular television shows to watch. These series will tear your heart up in the best possible way!

Raise your hands if you’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan and are always hoping for other TV shows like it? I’m a pretty fierce Grey’s fan and have been ever since I binge watched it two years ago. I caught up with all the episodes and suddenly I had to wait a week in between episodes. I was literally dying each week; it was one of my top shows, and I had to watch! If you are also a Grey’s fan, you know that Meredith and the doctors have all taken us on the trip of a lifetime. How they keep finding new ways to rip my heart from my chest every week is beyond me, but somehow Shonda Rhimes (the series creator for those who don’t know) manages to keep the drama coming. If you like a good medical drama, I have a list of TV shows they may just split your heart in two that you need to add to your list!

Private Practice

Private Practice is a medical drama television series that aired on ABC for six seasons, from September 26, 2007 to January 22, 2013. It is a spin-off to Grey’s Anatomy. The series focuses on the life of Dr. Addison Montgomery, a neonatal surgeon, as she leaves Seattle Grace Hospital to join a private practice, Seaside Wellness Center. Private Practice stars Kate Walsh. Normally I’m not a huge spinoff fan but Private Practice is different. The show starts off being a pleasent echo of Grey’s, but quikly becomes a top show to watch all on it’s own. This one can stand on it’s own two feet.

  1. It has been several years since I watched Grey’s anatomy but these are some great shows my daughter would really enjoy. Although now that she is starting HS she won’t have much time

  2. I stopped watching Grey’s after Denny died…too sad! I was a fan of House. I haven’t seen the others though. Will check them out!

  3. I don’t watch much TV so I’m not a fan of any of them. I’m sure that those who do would love your list.

  4. I love to marathon stream a show!! I think this show is one I need to rewatch everything from the beginning. I had not heard of some of these similar shows before.
