The news comes only a day after it was revealed that the first Shondaland series under Shonda Rhimes’ colossal Netflix deal will debut in 2020. Rhimes left ABC for the streamer last year after more than a decade with the studio.
However, the mega producer will still have ties with the Disney-owned network for at least another year, as ABC handed out a two-season renewal to “Grey’s Anatomy” back in May. Rhimes also has “Grey’s” spinoff “Station 19” still going at ABC, and although that series was renewed for a third season at the same time, it remains to be seen how much longer it lasts past the 2019-2020 season as Rhimes continues to reign back her ABC properties. A couple other ABC-Shondaland collaborations, namely “Scandal” and “For the People,” ended their runs last year.
