With Shonda Rhimes now moving Shondaland to Netflix, should fans be worried about the future of Greys Anatomy?
On Sunday, it was announced that Rhimes has signed a multi-year deal with Netflix, moving her production company from ABC to the streamer. Heres the good news: Rhimes move will not affect Greys, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, midseason legal entry For the People, or the upcoming Greys Anatomy spin-off. As long as those shows are on the air, they will air on ABC, and Rhimes/Shondaland will still be involved with their production.
But how much life is left in the veteran medical drama, which is heading into its 14th season this fall? ABC chief Channing Dungey had previously expressed hope that Greys would outlive NBCs stalwart medical series ER, which ran for 15 seasons. Thatd be lovely, Dungey told EW in January. Ill take even more! Honestly, I think that the show is going to continue as long as Shonda and the gang have a creative passion for telling those stories. At the moment, it feels like were full steam ahead.
ABC sources say that hope has not changed in the wake of Rhimes move. Shondaland sources, meanwhile, are confident Greys Anatomy will continue to air on ABC for a very long time to come. In other words, Greys Anatomy wont be ending any time soon.
Greys Anatomy will return with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
