ABC Renews 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Revenge,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Castle,' 'The Middle,' 'Suburgatory,' 'Modern Family,' 'Dancing with the Stars,' 'The Bachelor' & 'Shark Tank'

        ABC has been the only network this season to not announce any early renewals ahead of their upfront presentations for advertisers  next week. That is until now! This evening news broke that ABC has decided to give early pickups to their seven strongest scripted series.

        The seven series receiving renewals from ABC are freshmen dramas Once Upon a Time and Revenge; veteran dramas Grey's Anatomy and Castle; and Wednesday night comedies The Middle, Suburgatory and Modern Family.

        UPDATE 9:40 PM: ABC tonight has also announced that they are renewing three of their biggest reality staples. Dancing with the Stars will be back for a 15th season, The Bachelor will return for its 17th cycle, and Shark Tank will air its fourth season comprised of a full 22 episode-order.
