Grey’s Anatomy: Season 11 for Shonda Rhimes Drama

greys anatomy season 11It looks like the doors of Seattle Grace will be staying open for awhile. ABC has renewed Grey’s Anatomy for an 11th season.

Grey’s Anatomy follows the personal and professional lives of the staff at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital in Washington. This season, the ensemble cast includes Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Patrick Dempsey, Sara Ramirez, Kevin McKidd, Jessica Capshaw, Sarah Drew, Jesse Williams, Camilla Luddington, Gaius Charles, Jerrika Hinton, and Tessa Ferrer.

Though the show’s ratings are down year-to-year (by about 13% in the demo), Grey’s is the network’s third-highest rated scripted series. It currently averages a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.54 million total viewers.

If the ratings hold up, Grey’s could certainly see a 12th year. Ramirez, Pickens Jr., Wilson, and Chambers have all renewed their contracts for two more years, through season 12. Dempsey and Pompeo renewed their contracts in January.

What do you think? Are you glad that this show has been renewed or do you think it’s time for it to be cancelled?

    This is one of the most powerful TV shows I’ve ever watched and I’ve seen my share of shows. The dynamics of the show encapsulate the very complicated human behavior. The original characters were perfectly cast and as they left one by one I understand the show decent into lower rating. The script and the feel of the show is perfect however casting has suffered. I watched the whole series on Netflix and it took everything I had to go on when they killed Mark , I mean C’mon eye candy like that you don’t get rid of and now Christina? I don’t know. . She really carries the show. I really hope they can continue to pull off the great story lines but Meredith really isn’t that interesting. I guess all I have left is my Alex -if he ever goes That’s IT the show will be canceled for me.

    I really like the show greys anatomy it’s so dramatic and it’s been interesting enough to keep on going strong but I feel like they should bring Katherine heigles character “izzzy Stevens” back it was such a great show with her in it and I think it could put an interesting spin on catching up on her life after Seattle grace and Alex’s and hers short lived marriage after cancer drama. They need those old characters to rematch to put some more closure to their characters especially hers cuz that last episode with her in it was just unfinished I think and they really need to do something about that in my personal opinion, also Isaiah Washington would put a spin on returning him, and since Lexi and Sloan are dead they need those strong beginning favorite characters to complete the show before it hits a series finale. So please bring back izzy Stevens they need her, she made the show better and should of never dropped her.

    I can’t wait for season 11…..I didn’t spec that Dr Ellen Grey give for adoption the daughter she have with Dr Richard weber

    • Andi says

      Omg, neither did I!! There was never even a hint that Ellis was even pregnant, let alone went through with the pregnancy, and gave the baby up for adoption. I wonder why she never told Richard!

    Bring it on!! As long as Japril (Jesse Williams really) and MerDer are on my screens, I’m watching. Congratulations!!

    I am delighted the Grey’s Anatomy is continuing. However, I did find the inaccuracies in the series overview somewhat annoying given the purpose of TV Finale. I would think that part of the job would be to get the story line details correct. For example the name of the hospital has been Grey-Sloan Memorial for several seasons now. Sandra Oh is no longer part of the cast, etc.
