Though the Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 finale hasn’t even aired yet — the superstorm hits this Thursday, May 16 at 9 p.m. — the writers are already hard at work on Season 10. The hit medical drama was just renewed for a milestone season, so we bet the drama will be more intense than ever.

The twist, though? Creator Shonda Rhimes revealed that they started writing for the next season weeks before the show was officially picked up — can’t deny the gal is confident!

While she didn’t hint at any storylines, she tweeted, “And now I can tell you that GA Season 10 Writers' Room and Scandal Season 3 Writers Room have been going since May 1. So we're already ahead.”

Hopefully she will drop some hints after the finale airs on Thursday, though we won’t hold our breath. If anything, there will be vague, cryptic notes about our favorite doctors’ fates, and perhaps a few sassy tweets at fans, too.

Until then, we’ll be making predictions about the epic season ender and crossing our fingers that the MerDer baby will be part of the Season 10 cast!
