Does this change herald the END?

Grey’s Anatomy fans need to be strong right now. In the new and then already 19th season of what is probably the best-known of all hospital series, they will largely have to do without the namesake!

Because cult doctor Meredith Gray (Ellen Pompeo, 52) will only be seen in just a third of the new season.

Since 2005, Pompeo has worn Dr. Meredith Gray already in the white doctor’s coat. Along with James Pickens (67, Richard Webber) and Chandra Wilson (52, Miranda Bailey), she is the only remaining main character from season one.

Now the series shock: According to the US side “Deadline” Meredith will only appear in eight of a total of 22 new episodes.

Is this a quiet and slow farewell to what is arguably the show’s most important character?

Also Patrick Dempsey (56) aka Derek Shepherd was hardly seen at the end of his screen time before viewers had to cope with McDreamy’s departure. Most recently, fan favorite Alex Karev, played by Justin Chambers (52), said goodbye in season 16 with a letter to Meredith.

Noisy “Deadline” behind the decision to film fewer episodes is the fact that the 52-year-old was able to land the new lead role in another series.

This is supposed to be the true story of Ukrainian-born Natalia Grace, who is adopted by American parents and dubbed a “sociopath”.

Is it the end for the role of Meredith Grey?  And is the end of the role also the end of the series?

What will happen to Pompeo’s role in season 20 is not finally clear. But can there even be a GREY’s Anatomy without Meredith Grey?

Currently, fans can still see the doctor in action. The 18th season is currently running on ProSieben every Monday at 8:15 p.m. The new episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” will start on October 6, 2022 on the US broadcaster ABC. In Germany, fans will have to wait a little longer, as the start date is not yet known.
