Good news, Shondaland fans: While Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and Private Practice won't be returning for several months, the writers are already hard at work crafting the upcoming seasons.

On Tuesday, the mastermind behind all three shows, Shonda Rhimes, tweeted, "Sitting in the PP writers room today! Was at GA yesterday and will be at Scandal tomorrow! Loving seasons 9, 6 and 2!"

Maybe if they work really hard all summer, the Grey's writers will come up with a Season 9 premiere so awesome, we'll forget for a second that they killed Lexie (Chyler Leigh). Maybe.

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
