Grey's Anatomy kept viewers on the edge of their seats with intense situations, sordid romance, and medical drama the likes of which television viewers had never seen, so it's no surprise that you’d be on the hunt for similar shows to watch after bingeing the entire series. Well, search no more, because this list has some of the best recommendations for movies and TV shows similar to Grey's Anatomy.

Deciding what to watch after you finish every episode of Grey's Anatomy really depends on your mood, but if you’re looking for more serious medical drama shows, Private Practice is a spinoff of the series, which focuses less on the drama of working in a hospital, and more on the individual men and women who make up a private practice clinic that you’ll almost certainly love if you like Grey's Anatomy.

Some other movies and TV shows like Grey's Anatomy in this list are movies like Mean Girls, which may not be about medicine, but it's all about the social dynamics of high school and how people live and work with one another in various cliques. E.R. is another good TV series that helped pave the way for shows like Grey's Anatomy by offering up incredible drama and well-written stories centered around doctors working in an emergency room. Other good TV and movies recommended for Grey's Anatomy fans include The Good Doctor, This Is Us, and Chicago Med.
