As for Grey's, the recent demise of Dr. Derek Shepard (Patrick Dempsey) still has the TV journos antsy about about the sudser's future.  Here's an excerpt from TVLine's coverage of ABC's Upfronts with Lee's assurances:

  “[It’s] not the final season of either,” ABC president Paul Lee told reporters on Tuesday, just days after both Castle and Grey’s got renewed for the 2015-16 TV season. “And I would like to see them run for many, many years to come. They’re both powerful, vibrant brands with incredibly passionate audiences.”
