ABC Orders More Episodes of 'Grey’s Anatomy,' 'American Housewife' and 'Black-ish'
ABC is doling out additional episodes of three of its shows.
Grey’s Anatomy, American Housewife and Black-ish each nabbed two additional episodes. The additional orders bring their series totals to 24 episodes for the season.
In its fourteenth season on the air, Grey's Anatomy is about to celebrate 300 episodes. The medical drama airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. American Housewife, for its part, made a successful move to a new time slot this season, Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. And so did Black-ish, which now airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
The series are no strangers to additional episodes orders. ABC last year ordered two more installments of Grey's and Black-ish, while also greenlighting an additional episode of American Housewife.
The additional episode orders also come as both Black-ish and Grey's are preparing to launch spinoffs in the new year. Grown-ish premieres on sister cable network Freeform on Jan. 3, 2018, while the untitled Grey's Anatomy firefighter offshoot does not yet have a premiere date. Additionally, Shonda Rhimes' Shondaland is getting ready to launch another midseason drama on the network, the legal entry For the People.
All three shows are produced by ABC Studios.
