Grey’s Anatomy is already the longest-running scripted series on ABC — and it isn’t going anywhere for a while.
ABC announced today that they’ve renewed the popular hospital drama for two more seasons; the 16th and 17th to chronicle the lives of Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith Grey and the staff of Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital...
Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes’ new Netflix deal left the future of ABC’s flagship medical drama in question, and it seems fans have Ellen Pompeo to thank for its return. A new tell-all interview details Pompeo’s quest to balance the pay scales and earn a producer’s credit; likely guaranteeing Grey’s Anatomy a fifteenth and sixteenth season.
Last night, Grey’s Anatomy fans were heartbroken and shocked to discover that one of their favorite, most enduring characters would be killed off in the newest episode — hours before it even aired. Thanks to a mistake made by Entertainment Weekly, the death of Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek Shepherd (aka “McDreamy”) was well-known before audiences had the chance to watch the episode. That should have taken some of the sting out by allowing them to prepare for the tragic, abrupt death of Shepherd, but instead it only served to exacerbate outrage.
