No one thinks Grey’s Anatomy should end more than the show’s lead, Ellen Pompeo. (Let’s not forget, she even hinted at the show ending at one point.) But with the series getting renewed for a season 19, it doesn’t look like that’ll happen anytime soon. Still, that hasn’t stopped Pompeo from considering her future in the series.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 52-year-old actress discussed her future on the show. Pompeo has been there since the beginning, playing the role of Meredith Grey since the show first premiered on ABC in 2005. When someone asked if she could see the show continuing without her, she gave a vague answer.
“We'll see, we’ll see,” she said. “Trying to reinvent the show and continually trying to reinvent the show is the challenge at this point, and listen, the show speaks to a lot of people, and the young people love the show.”
