Patrick Dempsey to exit Grey's Anatomy after season 8

Patrick Dempsey tells Italian Vanity Fair he plans to exit Grey's Anatomy after Season 8.

"It's gonna be my last," Dempsey says. "I do not know what's going to happen to the other characters, but for me it's done."

Dempsey's contract is up after the eighth season, along with those for other original castmembers Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson, Sandra Oh and Justin Chambers.

Executive producer Shonda Rhimes has already expressed that she's planning Season 8 to be the last for the original cast. "It might be the last hurrah for a lot of them; you never know," she told TVLine.com. "Everybody has an individual choice to make and I get that."


  1. I have written a blog that is about the best nurse scrubs that the Grey's Anatomy have been using on all there episodes. Read it at http://paidcritique.blogspot.com/2011/07/greys-anatomy-scrubs.html

  2. Sad day that they are going to be leaving after the 8th season. I really like watching this show. A thank you to the gentleman who posted this link to his greys anatomy scrubs blog. I read through it and I really liked it. You've got some quality insights into the world of nursing. Thank you very much!
