“Grey’s Anatomy is a true phenomenon, beloved by audiences around the world. Whether they catch it live on ABC, or stream it on Hulu or globally on Disney+ or Star+, it’s clear that fans can’t get enough of Shonda Rhimes’ brilliant creation,” said Dana Walden, chairman of Entertainment, Walt Disney Television. “We have enormous faith in Shonda, Krista Vernoff, Ellen Pompeo and the entire creative team to unlock new, untold stories that will continue to focus on modern medicine, tackle the issues that shape the world around us, and resonate deeply with loyal fans for years to come.”

Pompeo, who in the past couple of years has been open about her desire to bring Grey’s Anatomy to an end and has been plotting her post-Grey’s career, last spring agreed to a one-year deal for Season 18. She was one of three remaining original cast members whose contracts were up at the end of Season 17; the other two, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr., signed multi-year new pacts that include Season 19, I hear. The other key element for a renewal, showrunner Vernoff, is under a multi-year overall deal with ABC Signature which she also signed last year. (Source: deadline.com)

Undecided about Dr. Hamilton's Parkinson's research project proposal, Meredith flies Amelia out to Minnesota to help her make a decision. Amelia immediately jumps on board, though Meredith later reveals to Nick on their first date that she's afraid the project will fail. Meredith eventually agrees to join the project as long as she can continue to work in Seattle. At Grey Sloan, Richard motivates the interns through a series of competitions, with Levi winning the opportunity to scrub in on Jo's surgery. Winston treats a woman with kidney failure, whom Winston believes is not on the transplant list due to her race. Megan and Hayes work on a young boy involved in a car crash, while Teddy and Owen treat the boy's father, who has pulmonary fibrosis but does not want to get treated.

Season after season, Grey’s fans have heard Ellen express this sentiment. That said, Ellen has acknowledged that showrunner and executive producer Krista Vernoff and ABC will also have a say about the ending. While Ellen has been signing two-year contracts the past several seasons, after her latest one expired in 2020, the network announced in May 2021 that she had signed on for one year to do season 18. Most recently, in late December, Deadline reported that Ellen and ABC had started talking about a possible season 19. (Source: www.goodhousekeeping.com)
