Good news, Grey's Anatomyfans! Sandra Oh (Cristina) may be leaving at the end of Season 10, but Meredith and Derek are here to stay. TVLine reports thatEllen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, whose contracts were also up at the end of the season, have signed new two year deals.
This news means we won't have to worry about losing the show's leads until Season 12. Whew. It also bodes well for the show's renewal for another season. We didn't really doubt that Grey's would get a Season 11 — after a decade it's still one of the most popular dramas on air — but every bit of good news is reassuring. Plus, the fact that it's a two year deal suggests that ABC has faith in the show's continued success.
So, now that we know that the show's main romance will live on, what about the rest of the originals? Justin Chambers (Alex), Chandra Wilson (Bailey), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard) all have contracts expiring at the end of the season, as does Sara Ramirez (Callie). So far, there hasn't been word on where those actors stand, but we hope to have news soon.
