ABC announced today that Grey's Anatomy has been picked up for Season 18. The good news comes two years to the day after the veteran medical drama received a two-season renewal back in 2019.

Already the network's longest-running prime time scripted series of all time and the longest-running medical drama in TV history, today's pickup will see Grey's Anatomy reach the 400-episode milestone in 2022 - truly an impressive accomplishment.

On the air since 2005, the veteran Shonda Rhimes series continues to be a strong performer in ABC's Thursday night lineup. While its ratings are far from they were in its prime, the show still ranks as the network's top drama in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

Grey's Anatomy follows Dr. Meredith Grey and her coworkers at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital. The staff of attending physicians, residents, and surgical interns are faced with all types of medical cases, from trivial to life-threatening. While furthering their careers, they learn and grow from the patients they treat and the relationships they form with each other.

Look for Season 18 of Grey's Anatomy this fall.
