ABC Renews ‘Grey’s,’ ‘Scandal,’ ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ for Another Season

Shondaland dramas make up network’s TGIT lineup

ABC has renewed three dramas produced by Shonda Rhimes for another season, the network announced on Friday.

“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder” have been picked up for their 14th, seventh and fourth seasons, respectively.

The three shows currently make up the network’s Thursday night TGIT line-up, in what’s proven to be a smart branding move by the network to combine the three already-successful Shondaland dramas.

“‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Scandal’ and ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ continue to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and wanting more. I’m thrilled to bring back these shows and the OMG moments that come with them,” network president Channing Dungey said in a statement.

The three dramas join “The Middle,” which handed an early ninth season renewal last month.

Shondaland’s fourth series at the network, “The Catch,” which returns for a second season next month, has not yet been renewed. And the company’s untitled “Romeo & Juliet” sequel series, which was originally slated for midseason, does not currently appear on the network’s schedule.
