We get another year of Ellen Pompeo whining about how she wants Grey’s Anatomy to end

(ABC/Liliane Lathan)

Remember a few weeks ago when Ellen Pompeo was like, I don’t know how Grey’s Anatomy can go on, and she wants it to end. Well, guess what? She lied.

How do I know? Because ABC announced today that she signed on to do another season of Grey’s. That means the longest-running medical drama will be back on the schedule in the Fall for a 19th season.

It is not shocking. Even though it has taken a hit in viewership, it still does well for ABC and globally. And for some reason, people still like it.

Will next year be the show’s last one? We don’t know but be prepared for Pompeo to tell us she wants it to be.

Ellen Pompeo wants Grey’s Anatomy to end

Ellen Pompeo was a no-name before Grey’s Anatomy, and now she thinks she knows it all about making the same TV show for 18 years. That is why she believes it is time for the show that made her a household name to end.

“​I feel like I’m the super naive one who keeps saying, ‘But what’s the story going to be, what story are we going to tell?'” she told Insider. “And everyone’s like, ‘Who cares, Ellen? It makes a gazillion dollars.'”

I say kill her off and let the medical soap live on without her whiny character. Maybe then the creativity will return to the producers. Possibly she could be the source of what has been hampering the show.

But then again, Station 19 has been beating the show it spun off of this season in the ratings, so maybe Pompeo is onto something.

Plus, when the show ends, so will her career. So I think we are going to learn a lot about her behind-the-scenes antics when she is finally gone from the series. And it is not going to be pretty. But I could be wrong.

So do you think ABC should pull the plug on the program or the actress?


Grey’s Anatomy is bringing back another cast member
September 2nd, 2021 under Shonda Rhimes. [ Comments: none ]

Last season, Grey’s Anatomy brought back several cast members, including Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane. This season, we know they are bringing back Meredith’s late mother (Kate Burton) for a few episodes. She is not the only cast member who is checking back into Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

According to Deadline, Kate Walsh is reprising her role as Addison Montgomery. Walsh left the show at the end of the third season to lead the spinoff Private Practice for six seasons.

We don’t know how long she will be on the medical drama, nor why she is back. But, I am sure all be answered soon enough.

All of these stars returning proves the show was at its best when it first started. Too bad they can’t recapture their golden days.


Two medical dramas are adding doctors

Last season, several doctors checked out some of the medical dramas they were on. Their departure makes room for new medical professionals.

Over in Seattle on Grey’s Anatomy, Peter Gallagher checks in as Dr. Alan Hamilton, who knew Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) back in the day, according to Variety. It sounds like now we know how they are going to incorporate the late Ellis Grey back into the series.

Meanwhile, over on the other side of the country in Manhattan, New Amsterdam is getting a new surgeon. Sandra Mae Frank is playing Dr. Elizabeth Wilder, a deaf surgeon. Like her character, Frank is also hearing-impaired.

We will see both actors debut in the season premieres of their series. The ABC drama returns on September 30th, and the NBC one is back on the 21st.
