‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Renewed for Season 15 at ABC

ABC has officially picked up “Grey’s Anatomy” for another season, bringing the Shondaland medical drama to an impressive 15-year run.

“‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has a special place in my heart and millions of viewers feel the same way,” said ABC Entertainment boss Channing Dungey. “Thanks to fiercely loyal fans who have been on this journey since the beginning, and new generations of viewers who continue to discover the joy and drama of Grey Sloan Memorial, the show is as strong as ever.”

The announcement comes one day after the network’s other landmark Shonda Rhimes drama “Scandal” bowed after seven years.

Thursday also marked the final day of filming for “Grey’s” stars Sarah Drew, who had been with the show since its fifth season, and Jessica Capshaw, who had been on since Season 6. Creator and executive producer Rhimes celebrated the two actresses in an Instagram post on Thursday, hailing them as “beautifully talented women.”

“A social media post won’t cut it and I will not minimize their magic by pretending it will,” she wrote. “I have more to say. I will do so. For now I will just say how lucky we were to witness their talents and the magic they brought to their characters.”

Today, in the midst of scheduled mania of #scandal series finale, two beautifully talented women filmed their last scenes at #greysanatomy. Having these things happen at the same time is almost impossible to process. I need to devote a whole day just to celebrate Jessica and just to celebrate Sarah. To tell you stories about their talent and to tell what I know about what their roles have meant. A social media post won't cut it and I will not minimize their magic by pretending it will. I have more to say. I will do so. For now I will just say how lucky we were to witness their talents and the magic they brought to their characters. @jessicacapshaw @thesarahdrew

“Grey’s Anatomy” stars Ellen Pompeo as Dr. Meredith Grey. Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Kevin McKidd, Jesse Williams, Caterina Scorsone, Camilla Luddington, Kelly McCreary and Giacomo Gianniotti also star.

The new deal provided Pompeo $575,000 per episode, a seven-figure bonus, back end points on the Shondaland show, a producing credit and an executive producing credit on spinoff “Station 19,” which premiered last month.

Beetlejuice 2 Fan-Made Trailer Will Leave You Dying For The Real Thing

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s strange unusual horror/comedy Beetlejuice, which has got fans wishing for that long-touted sequel once again. In the absence of any official updates on that front, though, one YouTube user has now taken it upon themselves to create a teaser trailer for the belated follow-up, and we must say, it’s rather well done.

Echoing the events of the original 1988 movie, the teaser imagines the sequel following a young couple as they adjust to the afterlife once they’re killed in a car accident. Original ghosts the Maitlands also put in appearances as the couple’s new mentors, through some cleverly chosen footage of Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin as they appear now. Also, look out for clips of Catherine O’Hara, who played Delia Deetz, and Winona Ryder, whose role as Lydia Deetz offered the actress her first big break.

‘Grey’s Anatomy': Geena Davis Will Reprise Her Role As Dr Nicole Herman

‘Grey’s Anatomy': Geena Davis Will Reprise Her Role As Dr Nicole Herman
Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis will reprise her role as Dr. Nicole Herman in the penultimate episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14, TheWrap has learned.

We last saw Dr. Herman in Season 11, and she and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) had a strained but special mentor-mentee relationship. Knowing she had a brain tumor, Herman wanted to impart as much knowledge about pediatrics and fetal surgery to Arizona as she possibly could. She ended up getting brain surgery, but eventually went blind after complications.

According to the episode’s logline, Davis will return as Dr. Herman to present Arizona with an exciting opportunity — could this be how Arizona will be written off the show? It wouldn’t be the first time a character left Grey Sloan Memorial for another career opportunity — we’re looking at you, Cristina Yang.

It was announced in March that Capshaw and co-star Sarah Drew, who plays Dr. April Kepner, will not be returning to the medical drama after this season concludes.

Capshaw and Drew filmed their final scenes on Thursday, creator Shonda Rhimes said on Instagram.

“I need to devote a whole day just to celebrate Jessica and just to celebrate Sarah,” Rhimes said in her caption, promising she had “more to say” about the actress’ “magic.”

The penultimate episode airs on ABC on May 10. “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14 will conclude on Thursday, May 17.

News has confirmed that Geena Davis will reprise her role of Dr. Nicole Herman in the May 10 episode of Grey's Anatomy, the season's penultimate episode, and her presence will probably be the key to Jessica Capshaw's exit.

And while no one's confirming whether that opportunity will be the thing to take Arizona away from the hospital, it's not hard to reach that...

Could Nicole's return be linked to Capshaw's exit? The opportunity could be conveniently located in New York, and that could allow Arizona to take her daughter there, so she is close to Callie.

Mariska Hargitay (‘Law & Order: Svu’) opens up about ‘culture of shame and isolation’ for abuse survivors in new interview
“I think that for so long survivors have been living in a culture of shame and isolation,” reveals “Law & Order: Svu” cast member Mariska Hargitay in a new interview. After playing sex crimes investigator Olivia Benson for so many years, Hargitay tells “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah that fans now feel comfortable sharing their own stories of sexual abuse with her. “I think that this fictionalized character maybe was the first person that showed empathy and compassion, and they knew that Olivia was always for the victim first and felt safe there. Hopefully now that is indeed changing.”

“A League of Their Own” Series from Abbi Jacobson in Development at Amazon

“A League of Their Own”

The Rockford Peaches are eyeing a return to the field. A series inspired by “A League of Their Own” is in development at Amazon, according to Variety. Reportedly “not a close adaptation” of the original, the new version of the story hails from “Broad City” co-creator and star Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham (“Mozart in the Jungle”).

The modern take will follow a “new version of the Rockford Peaches during the first season of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1943.”

It’s still early days for the Sony Pictures Television project — deals haven’t been finalized for the potential series, but “a mini-writers room is believed to be in place, ready to work on script,” Variety details.

Released in 1992, “A League of Their Own” starred Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and Lori Petty. The Penny Marshall-directed dramedy sees the first-ever

Amazon is Developing a Series Based on The Classic Film A League Of Their Own

The classic 1992 Penny Marshall-directed film A League of Their Own is being adapted into a TV series by Amazon. I love this movie, and it seems like the kind of story that could actually work great as a TV series. But it sounds like the series is going to be very different from the film.

According to Variety, the series is said to be "not a close adaptation of the Penny Marshall movie starring Tom Hanks and Geena Davis, but rather a modern take on the story. It is not expected to feature characters from the original, but will follow a new version of the Rockford Peaches during the first season of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1943."

So even though the series will be a modern take on the story following a new version of the Rockford Peaches, it will still be set in 1943. It will certainly
