ABC Orders More Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Castle, The Middle, Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue

by at . Comments

ABC may be saying goodbye to Private Practice in a few weeks, but viewers will be saying hello to new installments of a few veteran shows and two new dramas.

The network has ordered additional episodes of Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Castle and The Middle. This brings the episode totals for Grey's, Modern and Middle to 24, while Castle will air for 23.

Elsewhere, ABC has ordered two more scripts for Last Resort, whose most recent episode improved six percent over the previous one; and 666 Park Avenue, which comes as a surprise because its viewership fell below five million overall viewers last Sunday.

CASTLE - NOW :) ABC has a phenomenon the universe has dropped on their laps called CASTLE. Fresh concept, crazy smart cast & crew. The forces that be align themselves & voila - the sum total of the group enhances their individual talents. Daring, fit for human consumption by every age group. International, its followers come from around the glove. Understated, excellence disguised as light entertainment. I could go on & on, but you get the idea - a phenomenon called CASTLE - a gift from the universe. The past is no more, the future no one knows, but CASTLE is happening NOW. Thank you ABC - great choice. We have been given a gift, rejoice & enjoy. CASTLE - NOW... ;)


I would like to see Bailey break up with Ben and then have Sam come to SGMW and hook up with Bailey.


I'm sad for PP, but if it's ending, they could bring Ameila on Grey's. :)


Can't understand why only one episode of Castle has been ordered. Possibly, the network has been told the complete storyline for season 5 and the further episode is to wind things up as, possibly, ABC are not going to renew Castle for a 6th season. Obviously, as a wild Castle fan, I would want many more seasons of Castle but you never know!


I hope ABC orders more episodes of Scandal too.


I'm glad for Grey's. I jus hope that Shonda uses the time to get some good guest stars and also adds the rest of the shepperd family to an ep.
666 Park Avenue just needs to like decide what it wants to be. I'm not gonna be surpirsed if they cancel it.


Glad PP is getting cancelled - sorry - do not need Addie back on Greys -


Yay more grey's anatomy and castle


Just happy we get 24 episodes of Grey's Anatomy this season and if Private Practice is ending soon, I hope Kate Walsh will come back for appearances on Grey's as Addie.


666 was a shocker. well not really, since ABC has always been very fond of Vanessa Williams. who wouldnt be, she's awesome! ;)
however Im not really feeling this show.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
