McDreamy Confirms Next Season Of Grey's Will Be His Last

But will his on-screen wife follow suit? TBD.

Those who have stuck with Grey's Anatomy the last seven years have grown fond of Patrick Dempsey, but will soon have to learn to do without him. In his recent interview with Italian Vanity Fair, McDreamy confirms that the upcoming 8th season of Grey's will be his last. While he calls the show a "great part" of his life and leaving "bittersweet," he reveals that he "can't see [himself] doing it anymore."

In truth, it revitalized his career, but he's right - it's time for him to move on.

So, that's one. Including Ellen Pompeo, there are only four other original cast members remaining at Seattle Grace. As we recall, all of their contracts are up this season. Could we be seeing the last of Meredith & Cristina, Dr. Bailey and Alex as well? If they go, will the show last much longer anyway? And if they stay, but Patrick leaves, what will that mean for Meredith and Derek?!

So many questions that only Shonda Rhimes can answer!!! Dun, dun, dun!

What do U think? Personally, we'd like season eight to be it's last. They've had an amazing run and we'd love it if the show ended with as much of the original cast intact as possible. But then again, those who have joined the show in recent years have been really strong players. It'd be a shame to waste them. We're torn - what do U think???

    They absolutely cannot split up… I won't allow it.



  2. 2

    You forgot James Pickens, Jr. as Dr. Webber–he's an original cast member too!



  3. 3

    I think its really sad they didnt bring back dr burke… I 've always hoped for it, but since we now know dempsey will be no longer a part of it, i dont think it will ever happen. Ehh bummed



  4. 4

    I think they should call it. It's had seven good years so far, and it sucks if they become that show where no one remembers how it really started or how people got there.



  5. 5

    Can't imagine Grey's without Derek and Meredith. They're the main characters of the show!



  6. 6

    They need to have Derek leave town, with Meredith to follow him shortly. Then have her in most of one more (the FINAL) season, let her go join Derek, wrap up all the other stires, and pack it in.



  7. 7

    Nooooo don't leave!!! If that did happen the only way I could watch again is if he was replaced with "Galen Gering" of "Days of our lives"!

    omg this is so sad :'( i hope Greys doesn't finish because of this! literally the best tv show ever.



  9. 9

    I agree that Grey's Anatomy should wrap it up and end the series sooner rather than later. Last season was really disappointing…

    If the shoe ends, some of the cast can move out of Seattle to LA and join Private Practice. That show needs HELP! Snoozefest! Love Grey and I hope Patrick (Derek) reconsiders.



  11. 11

    I'm done with the show anyways, season finale was more than awful.

    He hasn't been as much of a central figure this year anyway. He and Meredith can go off into the sunset with Zola and maybe visit once in a while. They're destroying Christina too. Maybe it is time to let go. Though they can send Dr Bailey, Callie and Mark to Private Practice and get rid of Violet, Pete and Sam. Sam needs to go meet up with Naomi and start over. Then maybe Mark and Addison can adopt a child together, raise it with Callie's baby and all will be good. :D

    I think that it's time the show says bye bye. Private Practice also. Both shows have declined in the last year. Writing is just so so now and not at all inTeresting. I wouldn't miss Derek or Meredith at all. Also, if they leave how can it be Grey's anymore when the Grey is gone? Unless they bring in other really intersting characters and spice up the storylines I think they are done. Well done.
