Ellen Pompeo Says ‘Grey’s’ Could End This Year! Bad news for Grey’s Anatomy fans…the show might be ending sooner than expected.
In an interview with Variety, the star of the series Ellen Pompeo, who is one of the few cast members who has been with the show since day one, said, “We don’t know when the show is really ending yet. But the truth is, this year could be it.
“I don’t take the decision lightly. We employ a lot of people and we have a huge platform,” she continued. “And I’m very grateful for it. You know, I’m just weighing out creatively what we can do. I’m really, really, really excited about this season. It’s probably going to be one of our best seasons ever. And I know that sounds nuts to say, but it’s true.”
Grey’s is set to return on November 12, 2020 on ABC and you can watch the trailer for the new season right here.
VIA SHOWBIZZ411 – “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo is taking her contract negotiations into the press.
In a new interview with Variety, she announces– and no one asked– that this could be the last season of her show. (Please god.) Variety, it seems, is complicit in the negotiation.
“Grey’s Anatomy” has been on the air since the spring of 2005, 17 seasons. I remember seeing the debut while I was covering the Michael Jackson trial in Santa Maria, California. Pompeo has outlasted nearly everyone from the original cast save two actors. Her 2018 contract brings her more than $20 million a year — $575,000 per episode, along with a seven-figure signing bonus and two full back end equity points on the series, estimated to bring in another $6 million to $7 million.
But that deal will end with this season, and then it will be interesting to see if ABC will pay her more or just throw in the towel.
