ABC has renewed all of Shondaland’s Thursday night dramas – as if we’re surprised.
Grey’s Anatomy will return for Season 13, Scandal for Season 6, and How To Get Away with Murder will be back with Season 3. Variety reports that that “although Scandal and [HTGAWM] have seen significant declines in their numbers this season, the dramas are still steady performers and have huge social media followings, trending on Twitter every Thursday night.
Grey’s however has sustained its audience and has the largest viewership of all three TGIT shows with its 12th Season being praised as the medical drama’s best season yet.
And let’s not forget Shondaland’s fourth drama, The Catch which will premiere March 24th and temporarily replaces “HTGAWM” when it ends its second season.
Shonda Rhimes tweeted this precious gem in response to the news.
