  • Ellen Pompeo hinting about her time on the show coming to an end??

    I just saw this article online and thought I'd post it for anyone who's interested:

    https://www.usmagazine.com/entertain...will-end-soon/

    She may just have been throwing out possibilities during an interview but it sounds like she wants to move on to spend more time with her kids and do more producing instead of acting. I do agree with something she said though: that they've told just about all the stories they can. If it does come to an end after this season, I really wish they'd find a way to get the actors whose characters are still alive (Sandra Oh, Sara Ramirez, Sarah Drew, Jessica Capshaw, etc.) to make one last appearance. Pay them whatever they want to have them do it! But for the very last scene, I'd love to see the doctors just continue on to the next crisis instead of having a big goodbye party and have them walk off into the sunset because the characters will still be doctors and not all retire at the same time.

    She said after season 16 so that would make for two more seasons . They are starting season 15.

      JMHTGO, I think Shonda has given Ellen too much power and I think the actress and her character are overrated. Certainly not worth $20 million. Again JMHTGO.

        Agreed ....the show would run on without her just fine ! Loosing Derrick was a big loss to Greys.......
        She most certainly does not deserve that salary that’s crazy.
        Thinking thatswgy we lost April,Kallie,and Arizona......

        They did present a first good show.

        Alex and Joe lovethem !

          I agree. I don't think Ellen Pompeo is worth $20 million a year but since they're paying her that and she's now a producer (or executive producer... can't remember which), she can call a lot of the shots as to storylines. It seems to me that the other female characters who are still on the show are whiny (Maggie), wildly insecure when it comes to romantic relationships (Amelia), quick to fly off the handle (also Amelia), and afraid to assert themselves as doctors (Jo). And on top of that, Miranda keeps changing her mind as to what she wants to do in her career and one of the newbies is so blatant in her desire to be Meredith's lover that it's downright cringeworthy. The show tries to talk a good game about women being empowered and strong but the characters (except for Meredith, of course) aren't necessarily written that way. Just my two cents.

            I agree with you Mox. It seems to me that they have gotten rid of all the female characters that outshined Meredith, including her original Person Christina. I wasn't a Christina fan, but she was far more interesting than Meredith. All the other female characters were much more likeable than Meredith, so now we are stuck with ones that bow down to her. It's just sad, as you said, especially for a show that claims to promote women being empowered. The only one empowered is Meredith and only because they have given EP way too much power in what happens to her character and on the show.

              I know this is long after your post but thannkk you for this! You can't express that sentiment a lot of places without being lectured and yelled at.

              She isn't a compelling enough character to be the lead at all not to mention the actress is fairly overrated and has never been able to hold a story on her own. Notice how all of her interesting stories had Lexie/Christina/Derek or all involved in them?

              honestly the show has been treading water for well over 4 seasons and is still around IMO to break the records that ER made
