Grey's Anatomy Renewed for Two Seasons at ABC!

at .

File this one under least surprising renewal ever. 

ABC has renewed veteran medical drama, Grey's Anatomy for Seasons 16 and 17. Yes, that's a two-season renewal!

The popular series remains the highest-rated show in the 18-49 demo in the ratings, so the only way it would have been ending is if the cast wanted out.

Then again, there's no way the Alphabet network would let this show go without promoting the heck out of one final run. 

Grey's Anatomy became ABC's longest-running series with its 15th season renewal last year. It went on to become the longest-running primetime medical drama earlier this season.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
