Stars of Grey's Anatomy to remain stars of Grey's Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomythe secret juggernaut of TV—will keep on chugging with its central romantic pair intact. According to Deadline, stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have signed new two-year contracts to return to the ABC medical drama, meaning the show’s 11th season renewal is all but guaranteed. It’s a bit of a change from last summer when Dempsey hinted his departure might be imminent, explaining, “Work on a TV show doesn’t change. In a race, it changes constantly, every lap, every corner, every moment of that day.” Since that time, however, Dempsey seems to have realized that hey, maybe pretending to be a doctor actually is a little less grueling than driving around a circular track.

While the show’s current 10th season is the last for Sandra Oh, producers still have to focus on re-signing remaining original cast members Justin Chambers, James Pickens Jr., and Chandra Wilson. But if things go south, creator Shonda Rhimes can always write them out through a plane crash, crazed gunman, bomb, or electrocution—just some of the increasingly bizarre accidents that have killed off  Grey’s characters in the past.
