Shondaland Dramas, ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Among 15 Early Renewals at ABC

“Modern Family,” “Shark Tank,” “The Bachelor” also get new seasons from the network

ABC has handed out early renewals to 15 of its current series, including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder,” as well as Marvel’s “Agents of SHIELD.”

The 15 shows are: “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “The Bachelor,” “Black-ish,” “Dancing With the Stars,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “The Goldbergs,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Scandal,” “Shark Tank” and “Quantico.”

“Quantico” is the only freshman series on the list, having proven to be a solid ratings performer in a season marked by underwhelming batch of debuts this season, including “Wicked City” and “Blood & Oil.”

The official announcement follows news that “Once Upon a Time,” “The Goldbergs” and “Fresh Off the Boat” had been renewed for a sixth, fourth and second season, respectively.

The renewals are among the first major programming moves made by ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey, who took the reins after Paul Lee stepped down last month.

“We’re very proud of our strong roster of performers, and we’re excited about what they will bring us creatively next season,” Dungey said in a statement.
