Will There Be a Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy and When Will It Come Out?

ABC has guaranteed the continuation of the medical drama with a season 19.

After Deadline reported that ABC’s Signature President Jonnie Davis claimed it had been considered, there have also been rumors about a spin-off show.

Later, Davis provided clarification for the story, which was posted on the website: “There are a few remarks I made in an earlier interview that I’d want to explain. Grey’s Anatomy has yet to be discussed as a spinoff.

With the brilliant Krista Vernoff at the helm, and the incredible Ellen Pompeo leading our cast and co-executive producing, we’re all in on season 18. As the head of ABC Signature, I was merely trying to show my support and optimism for Shonda Rhimes’ outstanding new show.”
