ABC TGIT - Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder

ABC's hit TGIT series - Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder - have each been picked up for another season (2017-18 season) by Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment. Next season will be the 14th season of Grey's Anatomy, the seventh season of Scandal, and the fourth season of How To Get Away with Murder. Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder have proved to be a stellar combination for the network since the January return of the three shows from Shondaland's Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. All three shows are produced by ABC Studios. ABC will bring back The Catch for a second season this March, but no word just yet on that series for 2017-18 season. The return of TGIT on January 26 drove ABC to Thursday season highs and made it the No. 1 network each week since the return, among Adults 18-49.
