'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Scandal,' 'How to Get Away With Murder' Renewed | THR

The entire TGIT lineup will return with new seasons in the 2017-18 season.
ABC’s Channing Dungey is making her mark with some high-profile early renewals.

Shonda Rhimes-produced Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder have all been renewed for the 2017-18 broadcast season, the Disney-owned network announced Friday.

The early pickups — typically reserved for the most high-profile shows from important producers — will bring Grey’s into its 14th season, Scandal to its seventh and Murder to its fourth. The fate of fellow Rhimes-produced drama The Catch has not yet been announced as the series will not premiere until Murder ends its run this season.

The early pickups comes as Scandal’s return has helped solidify ABC’s Thursday night, which also marked the return of the network’s “TGIT” branding. Since Scandal’s return, the TGIT lineup has helped ABC win Thursday night for the past three weeks in the core adults 18-49 demographic. Scandal’s Jan. 26 return — which featured the show’s president-elect murdered as he was giving his acceptance speech — helped fuel ABC to season highs.

“Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder continue to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and wanting more. I’m thrilled to bring back these shows and the OMG moments that come with them,” Dungey said of the early pickups.

Grey’s, starring Ellen Pompeo,ranks as ABC’s No. 1 show among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, an impressive feat for a show in its 13th season. It’s also a top 10 series in the demo and the No. 3 drama on all of broadcast. Its midseason return on Jan. 26 marked its most-watched telecast since September 2014.

Scandal, starring Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn, was bumped to midseason to accommodate star Washington’s second pregnancy. Rhimes has noted that the series will likely feature a reduced episode order as the drama likely heads toward its endgame. The prolific producer has also noted that Scandal isn’t a show that will have the same longevity as a show like Grey’s given the rate in which it burns through plot. (Scandal scripts are 20 pages longer than the typical drama.) The series will mark its 100th episode this season and Dungey told THR in January that they’ve talked about an endgame. “It’s really going to be up to Shonda because she’s the person who really knows where she wants the story to go and where it will play out. I have always said that I will take as much Scandal as she will give me. We are in a universe where she’s comfortable with slightly shorter seasons but my plan is Scandal is back next year and after that, it’ll be a conversation that we’ll have to have.”

Murder, starring Viola Davis and from exec producer and Shondaland disciple Pete Nowalk, returned last month to a season high and its best performance in a year — driven largely by its Scandal lead-in.

Without Scandal at 9 p.m., ABC limped until its return in the slot after opening the season with freshman drama Notorious in the coveted post-Grey’s slot. The drama, which had its order reduced, is not expected to return.

All three shows are produced by Shondaland and exec producer Betsy Beers. They’re from ABC’s sibling studio, ABC Studios, where Rhimes and Beers’ Shondaland banner is under a lucrative overall deal. The company also has Still Star-Crossed (which will change its title) due later this season as well as a drama pilot in contention.

For ABC, these are the first drama renewals for the 2017-18 broadcast season. They join comedy The Middle, produced by Warner Bros. Television, as having scored early pickups. ABC also has at least one new show ordered straight to series for next season in Marvel’s The Inhumans, which will debut in Imax theaters over Labor Day before launching in September with expanded episodes on ABC.

(villain anon) so I'm up and I have... more dumb questions. XD I just wanna ask... Have you ever thought about killing off any of the characters in your Vocal Android verse? I (I ADMIT IT I REALLY LIKE GORE AND CHARACTER DEATH)

Now where would be the fun in telling you that, my friend? T’is spoilers!

volturisecretary  asked:

Do you think humans that are Children of the Moon are aware that they are CotM? Or do you think they have some sort of amnesia thing going on when they phase? Also do you have any particular CotM headcanons?

I like to think of the Children of the Moon as very traditional, folkloric werewolves. As a result, they suffer from amnesia– or difficulty converting memories from their animal brain to their human one, at least– and have dramatic, tormented “what’s happening to me?” moments after every transformation. Still, they know something’s up because they tend to regain consciousness naked, miles and miles from their village, with their mouths tasting like blood once a month. 

Here are some assorted CotM headcanons:

  • Children of the Moon have a notoriously short lifespan post-infection, even without vampire interference. They have no supernatural properties in their human forms, aside from venom resistance, in my headcanons. So, when they wake up far from their homes after the night of the full moon? Many of them just die from exposure. If they fight another Child of the Moon or a human, they transform back with open wounds. Their biology is so geared to make more werewolves that it actually inhibits their own long-term survival. 

  • CotM are often suspected by their own family and neighbours. Historically, after the inevitable werewolf accusations, the village priest or council wanted to monitor the suspected person during the night of the full moon, with the understanding that they’d be executed if they did anything funny. Of course, when the person inevitably transformed, their family and community leaders were the first to die/get infected. 

    (The sound you hear is Caius grinding his teeth. He’s like… “So humans execute cats and roosters for witchcraft, no questions asked. But when it comes to actual werewolves, they suddenly discover the value of the judicial process and reasonable standards of proof. Really??)

  • Back in the day, Aro acquired a CotM in his human form and decided to keep him around for experimentation purposes. Very little came of it; all Aro really got was the curiosity of seeing a human turn into a wolf with opposable thumbs. But– now that microbiology and immunology and biochemistry exist as established disciplines– Aro is really regretting not having any CotM specimens around. Whatever they have that neutralizes the effect of venom should really be studied and weaponized, in his opinion. 

  • I’m so torn about what happens to CotM cadavers. Do they turn back to human corpses, or remain wolf-y? My heart says “remain wolf-y so the Volturi can have a spooky skeleton”; physics says “stop violating the laws of conservation of energy; haven’t you done enough?”

  • CotM became much less of a problem once firearms became readily available. In the 19th century and later, Siberian hunting culture basically took care of the problem. On the one hand, this was a relief for the Volturi, but on the other, they had a moment of grim realization re: human technological potential and the supernatural. If peasants could suddenly destroy mythical monsters that nearly kill vampires in a one-on-one confrontation, what did that mean for the sparkly undead?

@guidancerune last year they were playing at a small venue 5 hours away and because they are my favorite band and the tickets were 15 dollars my sister agreed to go with me so we drove 5 hours out to the middle of nowhere to this place called the moose lodge, which is just… it’s like some old people hangout spot it was really fucking weird

we were able to keep our places at the front the whole time for the most part even while getting thrown around by the rest of the crowd b/c we organized a little group of people, and sean was just walking around before and signing some things, and then he hung out with us during the openers like he was a random concert-goer and most people didn’t even like, recognize him? really? it was cool
