All good things must come to an end — even Grey’s Anatomy. The hit Shondaland series is nearing its 17th season, and fans have been wondering how much longer the show can last. But recently, ABC has been planting seeds for more seasons, including a few multi-year contract deals with major Grey’s Anatomy cast members like Kim Raver (Teddy Altman), Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt), and Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson).

On July 31, Deadline revealed Raver, Luddington, and McKidd signed new 3-year deals with Grey’s Anatomy after their contracts expired after last season. This means the actors could be on the hit medical drama through season 19 if ABC chooses to renew. The publication also shared McKidd, Luddington, and Raver will receive “significant salary bumps.”

The news comes a day after Richard Flood (Cormac Hayes) and Anthony Hill (Winston Ndugu) — aka Maggie Pierce’s (Kelly McCreary) new love interest — were bumped to series regulars for Grey’s Anatomy Season 17. Meanwhile, Stefania Spampinato, (Carina DeLuca) was moved to the spinoff series, Station 19, for season four.

That said, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) has yet to renew her Grey’s Anatomy contract as of this write-up. The current $20 million a year deal is set to expire after season 17.
