ABC is expected to announce the renewals of several shows today, from first-year phenoms to veteran dramas.
Among those that ABC sources say are in line for a pick-up:
- Once Upon a Time
- Modern Family
- Grey’s Anatomy
- Last Man Standing
- Happy Endings
- The Middle
No series listed here comes as a major surprise, although there has been questions about Grey's Anatomy due to the contract statuses of Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson. Shonda Rhimes, however, recently said she plans on continuing the show regardless of whether all original cast members return.
While programs such as Body of Proof and The River are likely over, bubble shows Cougar Town and Private Practice remain possibilities for a pick-up. We just may need to wait until ABC Upfronts in May to learn their fate.
