The entire list of shows returning to ABC in the 2016-17 season has finally been revealed.

After announcing the renewal of several series earlier Thursday, the network has renewed “America’s Funniest Home Videos” for a 26th season. It also picked up  “The Bachelor” for a 21st season, “Grey’s Anatomy” for Season 13, “How to Get Away with Murder” for its third season, “Scandal” for a sixth season, “Shark Tank” for Season 8, “Black-ish” Season 3, “Dancing with the Stars” Season 23, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” Season 4, and “The Middle” and “Modern Family” for their eighth seasons.

A majority of the shows have been favorites of the network since they first premiered including both “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” which have been Thursday night highlights for their past two and twelve respective seasons.

“Shark Tank” has performed well for the network on Friday nights for the past several years as well, often landing near the top spots in the ratings each week, though it did dip slightly this past week.

They join this list of shows that have already been confirmed for new seasons.
