Meredith and McDreamy are staying put in Seattle.
“Entertaiment Weekly” reports that Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempseyhave signed a new two-year deal to stay on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Though that does not guarantee that the show will run for two more seasons, that’s a pretty safe bet, as the show continues to be one of ABC’s biggest hits.
In fact, ABC president Paul Lee says the show could stick around for years.
“[Executive producer] Shonda Rhimes is one of the greatest writers that our generation has seen. She’s continuing to write an immensely powerful show,” he said (via E! News). “It makes you laugh and cry every week, and what season are we now?... I think it’s going to stay on the network for years to come.”
According to “EW,” the focus on negotiations will now shift to the show’s other remaining original castmates, including Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilsonand James Pickens, Jr.
Sandra Oh announced her departure at the end of the current season before season 10 premiered this fall.
