Even though ABC is sticking by Grey's Anatomy for the foreseeable future, that doesn't mean that the actors will! Some of the cast members have spent a decade of their lives within the (fake) walls of Seattle Grace/Mercy West/Grey Sloan Memorial. Just the fact that she hospital has changed names three times proves how long the story has been going!
Understandably, some are ready for new challenges, like Sandra Oh, who announced before Season 10 began that it would be her last year with the show.
The question of whether other Grey's stars will follow suit is top of mind for fans of the show, particularly as the contracts expire this season for the original cast members. That means that Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber), and Justin Chambers (Alex Karev) aren't obligated to come back for Season 11.
At the TCA Press Tour, a journalist asked ABC president Paul Lee about other impending cast departures. "We don't have anything to say about that," Paul shot back, per E! News.
This worries us a bit. He could have said, "We haven't heard anything." But instead, it's a "We aren't saying anything right now"-type response. He might know something he's not telling us.
Then again, these actors are also in a prime spot to renegotiate a new contract, and get a huge raise in the process!
Stay tuned, Grey's fans!Source:E! News
