Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey sign up for more 'Grey's'

Sandra Oh's exit hasn't prompted the rest of the "Grey's Anatomy" cast to jump ship.

According to reports, stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have signed new two-year contracts, giving a new lease on life for their "Grey's" characters.

Oh, who's played Dr. Cristina Yang since the soapy medical drama launched on ABC in 2005, announced in August that she's ready to move on. Creator Shonda Rhimes is preparing to write Oh's character out of the series with its 10th season finale coming up this spring.

Although "Grey's" hasn't officially been renewed for an 11th season, having Pompeo and Dempsey pledge to stick around makes it a clear candidate for return. And the news gets even better for "Grey's" fans: Deadline reports that excluding Oh, no other original stars are anxious to try new things.
