ABC President, Karey Burke Wants More 'Grey's Anatomy' Post Season 16

There's no denying the success of Grey's Anatomy.

From its longevity to the continual dedication from the fans, the ABC medical drama is going strong – and it doesn't look like it's slowing down anytime soon.

Recently, Ellen Pompeo, who has been playing the famous Meredith Grey for over a decade, teased that while she was contracted to do the series until season 16, she might stick around so long as ratings don't go down. This had fans wondering if ABC would renew the series for season 17.

Well, if you love Grey's and you're hoping for more, then Karey Burke, President of ABC Entertainment, has some news for you.

In an interview with Deadline, Burke revealed that she was "planning for more" when it came to Grey's Anatomy.

But, does this mean that we will get to see season 17 of Grey's?

It's more likely than you think.

"We’re thrilled with Grey’s performance," Burke said. "I was visiting the set earlier this week. I believe the status is that we’re in conversations about continuing the show."
