UPDATED: If you haven’t figured out the pattern of ABC‘s renewals, the network is starting with all current series from sibling ABC Studios that it wants to bring back. As should be expected, dramas are first, beginning with the obvious ones: Shonda Rhimes’ Grey’s Anatomy, picked up for Season 11; Rhimes’ Scandal, ordered for Season 4 (Rhimes-produced pilot How To Get Away With Murder just got a series pickup too); the entire ABC Sunday drama lineup: Once Upon A Time (for season 4), rookie Resurrection (for Season 2) and Revenge (for Season 4) as well as Monday veteran Castle for Season 7. The only dramas missing from the list are freshman Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is under Marvel’s purview and could be bundled with Agent Carter, and Nashville, which is a co-production with Lionsgate TV, so it may be in a different category.
