“Grey’s Anatomy” and “Station 19” will each return for another season at ABC, the network announced Monday.
The long-running medical drama has been picked up for an 18th season to air in 2021-22, along with a fifth season of the firehouse spinoff. Both shows are run by showrunner Krista Vernoff.
“The writers, directors, casts and crews of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Station 19’ worked so hard to bring these shows to life this past season,” Vernoff said. “Keeping each other safe on set while paying tribute to the front-line heroes and first responders has been a challenge and a privilege. I’ve been truly blown away — particularly by our tireless crews — as they reinvented the TV-making wheel. Thank you to ABC and ABC Signature for the support and extraordinary partnership through this unprecedented season. We are so grateful for the opportunity to tell more stories.
