More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And after months of speculation on wether the original stars, namely Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey would stick to the show or not, and the reaching to an agreement to extend their contracts, ABC renews Grey´s Anatomy for season nine, officially. We sort of knew ABC would renew Grey´s Anatomy, even without their stars. After all, the show managed to survive well the departure of Katherine Heigl and has another Grey in the cast in the “little sister” that could move to be the title role in the eventuality of Pompeo not coming back. Fortunately for Shonda Rhimes, she is not going to need any plan B for this one, since not only ABC renewed Grey´s Anatomy, but the show will keep its leads too. This also makes Shonda Rhimes a very busy woman, with three shows on air, and a potential fourth come pilot season.
Original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, James Pickens, Jr. and Chandra Wilson had signed up for two more seasons. And ABC renewed Grey´s Anatomy for season nine, that can probably turn to ten in a few months.
