‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Kills A Main Character

If you have not watched the April 23 episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” ‘How to Save a Life’ stop reading. 

Rest in Peace Derek Shepard.

I could not bring myself to write this article about the recent death on “Grey’s Anatomy,” which killed off a main character Derek Shepard, McDreamy himself.

“It’s been a remarkable ride,” the Patrick Dempsey told TVLine. “The worldwide impact has been extraordinary. It is incredible how devoted and passionate the fans are and I will forever be grateful and humbled by the experience.”

Series creator Shonda Rhimes also released a statement:

Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character — for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our ‘McDreamy.’ Patrick Dempsey’s performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example — happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true — of what young women should demand from modern love. His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: the carousel never stops turning.

He was a husband to many, not only Meredith. R.I.P., McDreamy.

Sandra Oh Leaving ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

SANDRA OH

Sandra Oh is leaving “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Oh who plays the brilliant and sassy Cristina Yang on “Grey’s Anatomy” revealed Tuesday, she is leaving the series after the tenth season, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

“It’s been a great privilege to play the character of Cristina Yang on ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and I am both sad and excited to see where this, her final season will take her,” Oh said in a statement. “It was an emotional and deeply creative decision for me and I feel fully supported by [executive producer Shonda Rhimes] and the writers. It’s so rare in an actor’s life to be able to explore and grow a character so fully, so completely. I am profoundly grateful to everyone at ‘GA’ for the opportunity. I’m excited to celebrate and cherish every moment of my final season on GA with the fans who have made it all possible.”

The five-time Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner has contemplated leaving the series when she signed a two-year contract after season 8.

“I’ve gone through a lot of therapy over this,” Oh told THR. “I started thinking about it because I had to prepare myself. I gave myself two years to emotionally let go. At the end of last season, Shonda [Rhimes] took me aside and said, ‘What are your thoughts?’ I said, ‘I’m ready.'”

Shonda Rhimes said in a statement: “One of the best days of my life as a writer happened the day Sandra Oh walked in my door to audition and forever changed the course of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ with her brilliant, nuanced portrayal of Cristina Yang. Over the past 10 seasons, I have been made better by Sandra’s trust, faith and friendship and I can’t quantify how grateful I am for her collaboration on a character we both love so deeply. This year is going to be bittersweet for us — we’re both going to savor every moment of Cristina Yang and then we’re going to give her the exit she deserves. And when Sandra walks out of my door, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ will be once again be forever changed.”

Original cast members Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr. also signed a two-year contract along with Oh.

Despite talk of cancellation, ABC reassured fans: “It’s our intention to have ‘Grey’s’ on the air for many years to come, with as many of the original cast as possible,” ABC said in a statement.
