It’s official: ABC has set an official date for Meredith Grey’s departure as a lead character on Grey’s Anatomy.
Last month, the medical drama aired the season 19 winter finale, which teased the beginning of the end for Meredith (played by Ellen Pompeo). At the time, the network announced that the show will return from winter break on February 23, 2023. It also confirmed that the next episode, titled “I’ll Follow the Sun,” will double as a farewell for Meredith because Pompeo is stepping down as a series regular.
And now, ABC has released more details about the highly anticipated episode, which will be directed by Debbie Allen and written by Krista Vernoff. The network released a full-length teaser, which offers a glimpse of Meredith’s farewell party.
