ABC to Renew Grey's Anatomy, Revenge and More!

by at . Comments

ABC is expected to announce the renewals of several shows today, from first-year phenoms to veteran dramas.

  • Back to Neuro?
  • Celebrating Her Engagement
  • Henry and Emma

Among those that ABC sources say are in line for a pick-up:

  • Once Upon a Time 
  • Revenge
  • Modern Family
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Castle
  • Suburgatory
  • 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.

Grey's has been bad since the middle of the second season. The constant misery of the main character & her ridiculous relationship were so off-putting & that combination carried on for seasons. The sex among all parties was a major turn off also. I'm not a TV person to begin with, but I thought the show was excellent in the beginning, but Shonda simply got too high on herself too soon.

My thinking is that "GREY'S ANATOMY" with it's full cast and the other is new and you found what works "LAST MAN STANDING" TIM ALLEN HE'S STILL GOT IT AND IT WORKS...GIVING HIM 3 TEENAGE DAUGHTERS WAS A BRILLIANT IDEA...GIVE THEM CREDIT....BECAUSE CREDIT IS DUE..LAUGHING IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR SOUL...HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

I'm definitely glad that Grey's, Once Upon A Time, and Modern Family are getting renewed! I am desperately hoping for Private Practice to get renewed even if it'll be it's last season. I'm not ready to let go of it just yet.

I am happy that GA is being renewed!! I would also like to see Body of Proof return for a second season!

GA is soooo solidly boring. It seems the writers are just lost as to what to write next. Avery has to go. Mark is just blathering on an on. No character development , no excitement. Show has to end or else get some better writers.
GA = snooze land and bad acting

I will only continue towatch/follow GA if EP, PD and SO renew their contracts. The likes of Avery/Altman/Kepner hold no interest for me. Interesting that PP isn't yet renewed. I can see a few guest appearances for the characters of PP to appear in GA. maybe Amy Shepherd will be a replacement for Derek in neuro?

Don't watch Cougar Town, do love Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice especially when it comes to crossovers. Would love to see them all come back, I hate when they cancel shows and never give them a second season to win viewers over. There have been too many shows canceled after the first season. May is only a few weeks away. The wait is going to be torture.

Is this like Twitter and we're limited to 140 characters? I was cut off and had great Shiz to say!
Anyway, we need to save Bent! Period. Great show.

I think that ABC needs to procure Bent, because it is awesome and has been badly mistreated by NBC. I thing it would be great paired with Cougar Town,which simply must come back or pair Suburgatory with Cougar Town and pair Bent with Happy Endings. Bent was hilarious and is far superb to Two Broke Girls, whose antics are getting tiresome personally. If Bent goes into the deep black hole that so many NBC shows have, I will be pissed since utter dreck like Whitney(I tried really hard to like it but....ugh) is still there. And sorry, Chelsea....not cutting it either. Or put it on Thursday nights with other funny comedies, with the exception of The Office, which needs to end on a high note( but without Michael Scott....it's just a sad, little office. Time for the eviction notice sadly.
Bent is funny, Amanda Peet is not awful and is vaguely reminiscent of Courtney Cox, the lead guy is great in a dry, sarcastic kind of way and Jeffrey Tambor is spot on. I think the daughter might need to be recast, or shipped off to piano camp never to return but whatever. I wish it much luck because it has fantastic potential. I remember last season many naysayers put down Happy Endings and look how far it had come. Derek needs to be made a regular because he adds a little ..DRAMA! Best comedy on right now. Although Big Band Theory is hard to beat! Bent and Big Bang. So much potential at so many places! If NBC balks on this someone else PLEASE give it the chance it deserves. is that even a possibility? What can fans do to save it? Sigh a petition(eye roll) bombard NBC with emails saying we will revolt if Bent is not given a proper chance? Honestly, I'm surprised parenthood has survived this long. That show is awesome too and does not disappoint! Ever. The only show that makes me cry more is The Walking Dead! Damn zombies...make me cry every time.
What do we do? What do we do??

OMG! I can not believe people are saying GA has horrible rating's and this season is bad, don't know what your watching but this season has been way better then the horrid s7, I'm actually loving all the kick back's to early season's so IMO it so deserves another pickup and let's hope all the orginals come back as well.
While i'm at it everyone keep's forgetting that James Pickens was also an orginal but hardly ever get's mentioned in the renewals list let's not forget about Chief Webber.
PP i think will get picked up for a shortened run to finish up all SL and end with Addie getting her baby.
