Krista Vernoff of Grey’s Anatomy Says Season 17 Might Draw the Curtain on the ABC Series

Krista Vernoff of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy is quite unsure if the long running show will be renewed after a season 17.

The show runner is however planning for any contingency as talks of a renewal have been underway for months with no definite resolution.

Grey’s Anatomy, the medical series created by Shonda Rhimes will return for its mid-season premiere this week and spoke to THR on the uncertain future of the show which stars Ellen Pompeo.

“I’m planning a season and a finale that could function as either a season finale or a series finale. I’m planning for both contingencies and it’s hard and it’s not ideal. It’s not where I wish we were.”

I’ve got plans for both contingencies. Either there will be closure or I will build something in that allows me to have a bit of a cliffhanger and a thread for next season,” Vernoff said.

Leading lady, Ellen Pompeo signed a new deal that made her television’s highest-earning actress in a primetime drama series in 2017. That pact covered seasons 15 and 16 of the series, with ABC extending the deal to cover season 17 as part of a two-year pickup in 2019.

Pompeo is again seeing a salary increase as part of the renewal discussions if the show will continue.
