Hey, "Grey's Anatomy" fans. We're very happy to be able to officially tell you that your favorite show has been given the season 14 green light by ABC. The announcement actually took place way back in February 2017 with the network's other hit dramas: "Scandal" and "How To Get Away With Murder." This means ABC had no doubt that they wanted the doctors back in action for another go-round.

More jaw-dropping moments

This wonderful news, of course, means that you guys can expect to see more spoiler scoops, cast interviews, photos, sneak peek clips and all the usual promo goodies in the upcoming days, weeks and months, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for all of that.

According to TV Line, the president of ABC (Channing Dungey) was the one who made the renewal announcement. He said that the show continues to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. He's thrilled to be able to bring it back so that it can deliver even more jaw-dropping moments.

Stephanie is not returning

TV Line is reporting that actress Jerrika Hinton, who portrays Dr. Stephanie Edwards, will not be returning for the new season. Apparently, she has landed a new gig on Alan Ball's new HBO drama series that he will be coming out with. He was the creator of the very popular "True Blood" series, so this new gig might turn out to be a really good one for her.

Might leave it open

Currently, it's unknown how they will remove the Stephanie character from the storyline. They might leave it open for her to possibly return in the future or just go ahead and kill her off.

Whatever the case, we won't be seeing her around Grey's Sloan Memorial for a while.

Just like all the other shows, we don't currently have an episode count for the new season or a premiere date. That important information usually gets revealed in either late June or early to mid-July. Since it's an ABC show, I would be looking more at the mid to late July time frame to get these details because they're usually the last network to release them.

Stayed pretty steady

If I had to guess, I would say they will most likely get another full 24 episode order from ABC. As far as the premiere date goes, that has usually landed around late September or early October. I wouldn't be surprised if that happened again this year. The ratings for "#Grey's Anatomy" stayed pretty steady throughout season 13. It started with a 2.48 demographic rating and brought in 8.7 million viewers. The last episode that aired on May 11th brought in 7.02 million viewers to go along with a 1.82 demographic rating.
