Now that we’ve addressed that controversy that is really not a controversy at all regarding Patrick Dempsey, we can now move on to something else: Actually talking a little bit more about the upcoming tenth season of “Grey’s Anatomy.” This is a time when there is literally countless stuff worth looking forward to, whether that be the arrival of new faces, dealing with a major crisis, or getting some answers as to whether or not Chief Webber has turned into an electrical current and nothing more.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that also features some discussion about his upcoming Velocity docuseries “Racing LeMans,” Dempsey explained that it’s not going to be much time at all that passes this year when it comes to the end of one season, and then the beginning of the other:
“We’re continuing on where we left off last season. It’s continuous and it feels like it, too. The storm is continuing on and we pick up right where we left off. We’re still dealing with the crisis of what’s happening with the storm. We air the first two hours and our fourth episode in the season is our 200th, which is remarkable in itself.”
Something else that is really important to note here is that Dempsey believes that Shonda Rhimes wants to have the show be back for an 11th season, regardless of whether or not the same cast sticks around. That is a pretty ambitious achievement if it happens, but we still don’t quite know if it would work without the likes of Meredith and Derek on board. (Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, and others’ have their contracts ending this season.)
