TVLine has confirmed that original Grey’s Anatomy castmembers Ellen Pompeo,Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, James Pickens, Jr. and Chandra Wilson have all inked new two-year deals to continue with the ABC medical drama.
I’m really trying to push them to move these characters forward: “We have a year left on this contract, let’s make a big difference, let’s test this a bit, let’s not get too settled.” I’m going to be much more vocal this season than I have been. Whether they listen … (laughs). I’m not a producer, so it’s not my call, but I’m gonna let them know what my feelings are. - Patrick Dempsey. (xx)
ELLEN: This is special, special underwear for you to race in.
PATRICK: Oh, right on!
