Meredith Grey will continue to tell her story as Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for a 15th season.
Since it’s establishment in 2005, the medical drama has always been a ratings grabber for ABC, and now it officially holds the title of the network’s longest-running primetime drama.
During its 14th season, Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital will say goodbye to two fan favourites — Jessica Capshaw who plays Dr. Arizona Robbins and Sarah Drew who portrays Dr. April Kenner. Showrunner, Shonda Rhimes, also announced that she would be leaving ABC after more than 10 years to pursue a production deal with Netflix, but will stay remain as executive producer on her current series.
The renewal also sees Meredith herself, Ellen Pompeo, becoming the highest-paid actress on a TV drama after signing a 2-year contract which will earn her $575,000 per episode.
“Grey’s Anatomy has a special place in my heart and millions of viewers feel the same way,” said ABC Entertainment boss, Channing Dungey. “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.”
