ABC Renews Shonda Rhimes’ Entire TGIT Lineup
Guess what? If Thursday nights were already your favorite weekday to tune into broadcast television, things just got even better.
Earlier this week, ABC’s new entertainment president, Channing Dungey handed out early renewals of several series — including multiple shows from outside studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Not to mention, prized producer and writer Shonda Rhimes’ entire TGIT or “Thank God It’s Thursday” lineup was also brought back too: Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder.
America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Black-ish, Dancing With the Stars, Fresh Off the Boat, The Goldbergs, Agents of SHIELD, The Middle, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, Shark Tank and Quantico were announced for renewal as well for the 2016-17 season.
“We’re very proud of our strong roster of performers, and we’re excited about what they will bring us creatively next season,” Dungey said in a statement to Variety.
What else can we say? Congratulations are certainly in order for our gal Shonda!
