Becomes ABC longest running drama
ABC is extending its longest-running drama series, “Grey’s Anatomy,” for another year.
The network announced late Friday it has picked up the show for 2018-19. It will be the 15th season for “Grey’s,” extending its run as ABC’s longest-running drama ever. The show is also among the 10 longest-running network dramas ever.
Star and executive producer Ellen Pompeo extended her contract with the show earlier this season. Coupled with its still strong ratings, the pickup is no surprise.
“‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has a special place in my heart, and millions of viewers feel the same way,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey says 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.”
