greys anatomy ending

Grey's Anatomy might have to be renamed Anatomy after this season.

According to show creator Shonda Rhimes, season 10 may well be star Ellen Pompeo's last!

And she may not be leaving alone. With original cast members Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, and Chandra Wilson also on the chopping block, Meredith Grey might be able to get a group rate discount!

If one of the stars is leaving, Shonda says the news will come soon. She says:

"Last time they kept me guessing up until almost the last minute, which was really stressful. This time I asked to know much sooner, so that we could plan for it.

If one of the Originals is going to be leaving I want to give them the beautiful exit they deserve. I don’t want to be kept guessing about what’s going to happen."

We'll be sad to see the Originals go. They should ALL get together and star in a spinoff called The Originals!

It worked for Vampire Diaries! LOLz!

    Oh Shonda. Just kill it already. I used to be the biggest die-hard, would never miss a second of an episode fan to not even caring that I don't watch it anymore. When your original, title character is leaving after 9 years, it's time to end it.

    Really doubt that Ellen will leave. It's the only thing that's keeping her career going and furthermore it wouldn't be "Grey's Anatomy" without the Grey. Let's think about this.

    They should just have a spinoff with Meredith and Christina having to raise Meredith's kids because Derek died or something. Their friendship/relationship is the only one I've liked from the start.

    "Grey's Anatomy" was the "go to"all encompassing anatomy book students have been using for years. It's been around for decades. The show is not named after Meredith Grey. Pompeo is probably just holding out for more money and it won't be any big loss for her or Dempsey to leave anyway. Bring in some different characters to freshen up the show.

    The show has been over for a long time. Let it go. Very boring and I don't understand why anyone wastes their time watching this anymore.

    Re: anonymous – Keep in mind that although a book is called that, it's been centered around Meredith Grey. That's why it's called "Grey's Anatomy." She's the main character.

    If any of them leave they should just end the show…it's had a good run. I hate when the try to make shows work without the original characters.

    Re: anonymous – Hey dumb dumb. The book is spelled Gray's and the lead character is spelled Grey. Yes it is a play on words but they are not the same thing.

    Re: anonymous – The actual book is called Gray's Anatomy, it is a pun and the show is named after Meredith Grey.

    Greys Anatomy has been my all-time favorite show since the beginning! But Shonda, if the main characters are leaving, please just end the show. There's no need to try to keep it going if it isn't going to be the same. Have the show go out with honor instead of being cancelled from bad ratings!

    why is this show still on.

    If the originals leave there won't be much left to the show to keep me watching. The new characters haven't caught my attention enough to make me want to stay on if the others leave.

    If Ellen and Patrick leave I bet the other originals will follow. If they leave it's time to end the show. There is no point in keeping it on.

    Re: anonymous – The book is named 'Gray's Anatomy' and not 'Grey's Anatomy', so the show is named after Meredith Grey!

    They renamed The hospital after the court case so it could still be greys anatomy given greys is now in the hospital name but I think 99% of my interest in it will be lost if Sandra, Ellen and Patrick leave but that's because sometimes change isn't a good thing. Do I want it to end? Hell no! But I'd rather they got at least 2 or 3 more years before "the originals" call it quits then end it on a good note entirely. Continuing after they leave could be a major downfall for the show but I suppose I thought I'd hate PP and was majorly wrong so we'll wait and see. I suppose it used to be centered nearly soley around Ellen but it MAY still be interesting enough to keep going without her.

    Ellen won't leave. She hasn't had a role outside Grey's in 10 seasons. I don't think Patrick will leave either. Both have made it clear they like the fame and money Grey's gives them. They'll stay however long for the paycheck.

    If Ellen and Patrick leave after this season, then Meredith and Derek and children should move to Boston for the job offered to Derek, not kill then off.

    Well they have never said that they want to leave, not in an interview. ALL of them is really happy about season 10. I don't belive this side… never something good and Alot of lies about the Grey's cast!

    IF PEOPLE DON'T LIKE THIS SHOW, DON'T COMMENT… So many stupid things to read. And just so you know: 1. Abc wants the show for many more seasons - 2. Shonda is not a b**ch cause when people want to leave, she writes them off - 3. the cast is happt to be back

    Whatttttttttt???????? NOOOOOO!!!!
    If all those actors are leaving, why continue?! I won't continue to watch if all of those characters leave.
    Give the show some dignity & just end it if this is the case. I don't see the show lasting much longer if they did continue without their original stars.
    After all, look how much longer The OC lasted after the got rid of Mischa Barton.

    Re: Doubter – Ellen Pompeo hasn't done any films or any other tv shows since she started in Grey's because they won't let her. It's written into her contract, as she's the main character.
