“Grey’s Anatomy” has 2 episodes left for season 10 and then it’s over. The show has not as yet been renewed for season 11 but Cosmopolitan reported on May 5 that 4 more of its stars have signed 2-year contracts. That is definitely good news.
The fact that Justin Chambers, Sara Ramirez, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr. have each inked deals for two more seasons of the medical drama has got to be good news for fans. Both Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo signed 2-year contracts in January as well. That accounts for most of the main cast.
ABC has not yet confirmed that the show will be back for an eleventh season, let alone a twelfth. Many expect the announcement on cancellations and renewals to come later this month. Should the network pick up the series, Dr. Alex Karev, Dr. Callie Torres, Cr. Miranda Bailey and Dr. Richard Webber will be joining their friends Dr. Derek Shepherd and Dr. Meredith Grey back at Grey Sloane Memorial for more drama and fun.
Sandra Oh, who plays Cristina Yang, announced her departure from the show last fall. She will be leaving at the end of season 10. The show is currently in her story arc now for that departure which is expected to take place in the season finale on May 15.
Also leaving the show at the end of season 10 are Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles who play residents Dr. Leah Murphy and Dr. Shane Ross respectively. In the residents’ story line in the last episode, word leaked out that the Chief, Dr. Owen Hunt, is planning to fire one of the residents. This would explain the departure of one of the characters but not the other. No spoilers have been leaked explaining that second resident’s departure nor do we know which one is being fired.
Other actors whose contract status has not yet been divulged include Camilla Luddington (Dr. Jo Wilson), Kevin McKidd (Dr. Owen Hunt), Jessica Capshaw (Dr. Arizona Robbins), Sarah Drew (Dr. April Kepner), Jesse Williams (Dr. Jackson Avery) and Jerrika Hinton (Dr. Stephanie Edwards).
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs on Thursdays on ABC. The next episode is airing May 8 and is titled “Everything I Try to Do.”
