Guess what TGIT-ers? ABC has renewed our favorite Shondaland shows early! Grey's Anatomy will return for its 14th season, Scandal for its 7th, and How to Get Away with Murder for its 4th.
“Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder continue to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and wanting more,” sayid ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey. “I’m thrilled to bring back these shows and the OMG moments that come with them.”
Scandal's 6th season's return was delayed for Kerry Washington's pregnancy (Congrats, Mama!), and Dungey admitted to the press that she was nervous about postponing the show's return. “Scandal is a big hit show for us and nobody likes to go into their first fall season as president of entertainment without one of the biggest guns in their arsenal,” she said. “But, obviously we were thrilled for Kerry and her family and that’s all good news.”
Dungey previously stated that it was too early to determine whether or not Scandal will return in the fall, or launch in the midseason again. She said, “I haven’t even had the opportunity yet to read the pilot scripts that are in development, so for me to posit what next fall’s going to look like is a little too early."
Personally, I loved Notorious, but I want my TGIT to come back next fall in full force. What do you think? Did you enjoy Notorious? Should Dungey, pregnancies permitting, of course, keep TGIT in tact for the returning fall seasons?
