Shondaland Renewed for Next Season: UPDATE

ABC has announced Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder will return for another season! Grey's will return for a whopping fourteenth season, Scandal for a seventh season and HTGAWM for a fourth season!!!


Scandal's seventh season will be its last. The (sad) news was confirmed today (16 May 2017) at ABC's Upfronts presentation in New York City. 

Series star Kerry Washington said: "We are extraordinarily proud of what we created with ‘Scandal’ on ABC. We are exploring the darker side of politics, relationship, race and power."

Scandal will leave behind a legacy when it leaves the airwaves. Washington became the first African American woman to star as the lead in an American broadcast drama in 37 years.  The success of the show opened the door for How To Get Away With Murder and Empire.

Though I am sad to hear Scandal will soon be over, I respect series creator Shonda Rhimes and ABC Entertainment Chief Channing Dungey for ending the show whilst it is still entertaining. The worst possible scenario for an avid viewer of a TV show (other than the show getting cancelled before it has a chance to wrap its story lines) is for said show to be dragged out beyond its natural conclusion. Rhimes said she plans on going "all out" for the seventh and final season and I, like millions of other viewers across the globe, are surely in for a thrilling final ride!
