Despite rumors that Greys Anatomy might be coming to an end with Season 18, ABC has other ideas for the long-running medical drama. That's right, Greys Anatomy Season 19 is now up. The renewal announcement was made at the start of Season 18, and further confirming that Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital's mission is still on track.
Ellen Pompeo had her first public statement to convince people that the show should come to an end soon, according to an ABCs press release on Monday, January 10.
As another season is on the way, Pompeo's new Season 19 agreement will bump her up from co-executive producer to executive producer, while fellow executive producer Krista Vernoff will continue to serve as showrunner.

It's always up in the air which of the show rotating cast members both new and old will show up in each new season, but there's absolutely no question about three doctors being on call.

In a statement on the renewal, series creator Shonda Rhimes said the three original stars would return for Season 19: "I couldnt be more excited that we get to continue to tell the stories of Meredith, Bailey, Richard, and all of the other doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial for another season."
