'Feels Like an Episode of Scandal': Twitter Reacts to Shonda Rhimes' Netflix 'Power Move'
Just like her hit TV shows, the news that Shonda Rhimes will depart ABC for Netflix has shaken Twitter
“Give @shondarhimes anything she wants and EVERYTHING she deserves!” wrote actress Gabourey Sidibe on Monday.
But amid all the joy, some questions did arise.
While Grey’s Anatomy — along with other Rhimes-produced series Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder and midseason debut For the People — will continue to air on ABC as planned, others still feared for the consequences the move to a limitless streaming platform will have on their free time.
“Shonda Rhimes moving to Netflix is the worst thing to happen to my social life since graduating college,” tweeted another.
