The ABC medical drama has officially made history as ABC’s longest-running drama series.
Meredith Grey is staying put for at least one more year as the series has been renewed for its 15th season. The news was announced Friday evening by the network.
“Grey’s Anatomy has a special place in my heart and millions of viewers feel the same way,” said Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment, in a statement. “Thanks to fiercely loyal fans who have been on this journey since the beginning, and new generations of viewers who continue to discover the joy and drama of Grey Sloan Memorial, the show is as strong as ever.”
This is definitely some good news after it was announced that longtime stars and fan favorites, Sarah Drew who plays April Kepner and Jessica Capshaw will exit the show at the end of the current season.
Three months it was revealed that star of the show, Ellen Pompeo signed a two-year extension deal to remain as the main lead on Grey’s Anatomy. While it hasn’t been formally ordered yet by ABC, this means that there’s potential for a 16th season as well.
The upcoming season will return Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Kevin McKidd, Jesse Williams, Caterina Scorsone, Camilla Luddington, Kelly McCreary and Giacomo Gianniotti.
