The three series that currently comprise ABC’s “TGIT” lineup will all be back next season.

ABC has officially renewed “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” and “How To Get Away With Murder” for 2017-18.

The renewals earn “Grey’s Anatomy” a fourteenth season, “Scandal” a seventh season, and “HTGAWM” a fourth.

While it has suffered two consecutive episode-to-episode declines, “Grey’s Anatomy” remains one of the top-rated dramas on network television. “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” started cooling off last spring but remain competitive in the overall TV landscape. They also fare well with time-shifting viewers and generate ample social media buzz.

““’Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Scandal’ and ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ continue to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and wanting more. I’m thrilled to bring back these shows and the OMG moments that come with them,” said ABC’s Channing Dungey.
