Could another integral “Grey’s” star be on her way out? In two years, it’s possible, Ellen Pompeo said.
The actress has been playing Meredith Grey since 2005, and Pompeo isn’t sure how many more plot twists Dr. Grey can get into.
“When my contract is up after season eight, I would probably not renew,” she told Extra in an interview; the show is currently in its 6th season. “I think I’ve told all the stories that I can tell as Meredith Grey.”
But that doesn't mean the show will definitely have to soldier on without its main voiceover; Pompeo said anything could happen. “Who knows, never say never to anything, but I’ve told a lot of Meredith Grey stories, and I don’t know how much more Meredith Grey the world wants.”
The show will end this season without Dr. Izzie Stevens, since Katherine Heigl already took her leave from the medical drama earlier this year, but that's about all we know - Pompeo didn't reveal anything new. “You know ‘Grey’s’ finales,” she said. “Anything that can happen will happen and everything that could happen will happen…I’ll just say that.”
