Thank God, she’s back. The Sista Queen of network TV. The goddess who intelligently brought our Thursday night Scandal. The one who brought Isaiah Washington back to her Grey’s Anatomy, will be returning to the alphabet network, ABC, after signing a new deal that, according to Variety, keeps her Shondaland banner in place with the studio till May 2018.
Today’s ABC Upfronts gave a glimpse of Shonda’s upcoming Executive Produced show “How to Get Away with Murder.” And now, thanks to this deal, we can be assured that one of Hollywood’s most powerful writers, producers, showrunners, and queens will make sure that the rainbow collage of diversity seen on ABC, will continue while her reign remains golden. God Bless, Shonda Rhimes.
