Early Renewal for Greys?

Posted by on Mar 25, 2012 in Grey's Seasons, Private Practice | 3 comments

Good news, Grey’s fans.  It looks like Grey’s is on its way to an early renewal.  Private Practice is still up in the air.

ABC is on the verge of issuing formal early renewals to nearly a dozen scripted series, including freshman hits Once Upon a Timeand Revenge and established players Modern Family and Grey’s Anatomy.

Although an ABC rep declined to comment, TVLine has learned that the network’s prelim pickup list also includes CastleSuburgatoryLast Man Standing,Happy EndingsThe Middle.

Cougar Town and Private Practice, meanwhile, remain question marks. Ditto midseason entries GCB andMissing(The fate of Private Practice, ironically, likely hinges on the ratings performance of another Shonda Rhimes drama, the soon-to-debut Scandal.)

Considered long-shots for next fall are Body of ProofPan Am and (the possibly Netflix-bound) The River, although a final decision probably won’t come down on those fence-riders until the May upfronts. If cut loose, they would join the already-axed Charlie’s AngelsMan Up and Work It.

The Grey’s renewal comes as ABC continues to negotiate new deals with original castmembers Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson.

I’m very excited that Grey’s is on it’s way to a ninth season.  However, I’m sure that I am not alone in waiting with apprehension to hear about the contract negotiations.  I’m praying all of the originals come back.  Have any thoughts?  Post ‘em below.

  1. Its likely GA get picked up because of its ratings and it keeps getting good. I think the original cast will be back and im hoping they will!!!

  2. I just hope all of the original cast returns for season 9 especially Patrick, Ellen, Justin and Sandra. Grey’s is still the hottest show ever!

  3. Worried about Private Practice, specially if it loses people on its new night…I hope they at least give Addie her baby and hook her up with sweet handsome Jake…its like losing friends!
