There’s no question that “Grey’s Anatomy” has had an incredible run on television; but like just about everything else when it comes to television, all good things must really come to an end. By all estimations season 10 will probably be the end for life at Seattle Grace, and ABC’s longest-running drama will drop the curtain unless Shonda Rhimes decides to spin the series off into something new without a few of the primary leads. (Then again, we also have a feeling that this new show would need to have a different title in the process.)
Season 10 also marks the end of stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey’s new contracts, and speaking as a part of a new interview with TVLine, the actor explained just how he would like to see the show end. In his answer, he also showed a little bit of that trademark humor that we have come to love from his over the years.
“Gosh. I hope it’s not something traumatic like another plane crash or somebody getting run over by a bus. I think [life will] sort of just go on. I think it would just go out very simply — and leave it open for the movie.”
As for the movie comment, we’re pretty sure that Dempsey is joking … even though we would not be stunned to see “Grey’s Anatomy” end with some sort of two-hour mini-movie that helps to wrap up the show in a grand way that only Rhimes could do. (Heck, it could take two hours just to wrap up all of the storylines that have happened over the years.)
