ABC announced today that Grey's Anatomy has been picked up for Season 21. Coming just three episodes into the current 20th season, the news extends the show's record as prime time's longest-running medical drama.

"The loyalty and love of Grey's Anatomy fans has propelled us into a historic 21st season, and I could not be more grateful," said series creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes in a statement. "Meg Marinis' storytelling is a gift that continues to keep the show vibrant, compelling and alive, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for next season."

On the air since 2005, the Shonda Rhimes series continues to be a solid performer in ABC's lineup. While its ratings aren't what they were in its prime, the show still ranks as the network's top drama in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic. It's also a Top 5 overall drama in the same demo.

Grey's Anatomy follows the doctors working 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 21 of Grey's Anatomy this fall as part of ABC's 2024-2025 lineup.
