ABC’s medical drama Grey’s Anatomy continues to secure its place in TV history with a two-year renewal for seasons 16 and 17.

Here are what we know about it so far. 

What happened in Season 15

The medical drama, which returns on September 26, concluded with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Richard (Pickens Jr.), and Alex (Justin Chambers) losing their jobs for their roles in committing insurance fraud to aid a child seeking asylum. More so, Andrew (Giacomo Gianniotti) was sent to jail and Meredith could face jail time.

In the finale, Richard was fired by none other than Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), his former protege. While the scene may have come as a shock to fans, Pickens Jr. explained that it “made perfect sense” from a creative standpoint.

“It made perfect sense,” he told ET. “If someone was going to fire me, [it had to be] Bailey, who I mentored. But it sets up for some really fascinating and really funny and timely storytelling moving forward. I’m excited to see where it takes us all.”

Executive producer Krista Vernoff hinted during a recent interview with TVLine that fans shouldn’t expect to see this employment problem get resolved right away. “It was a big swing we took, and I can’t promise that Grey Sloan isn’t going to have to do without those doctors, at least for a while,” she teased. “I mean, they got fired!”

First look

On July 30, Pompeo took to Instagram Story to share a glimpse of Season 16 with co-star Gianniotti. Alongside a picture of Gianniotti propped on a bed with ice cream, Pompeo captioned, “This is my first scene of Season 16 eating ice cream in bed with @giacomo_gianniotti and I get paid??? #shondalandproblems”
