ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” fans were hit with some tough news this week and the news was definitely bittersweet.
Meredith Grey will say goodbye to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital in February 2023 and Ellen Pompeo is sharing her goodbye early.
Pompeo took to Instagram to share an emotional post:
“I am eternally grateful and humbled by the love and support you have all shown me, Meredith GREY and the show for 19 seasons,” the star wrote. “Through it all….none of it …would have been possible without the best fans in the world. You all are RIDERS and you all have made the ride so fun and ICONIC!!
“I love you madly and appreciate you right back. This isn’t your first time on the rollercoaster… you know the show must go on and I’ll definitely be back to visit.”
Shonda Rhimes, who created “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2005, shared a post on Instagram sharing her thoughts on Meredith Grey’s leaving the show.
“What a wild ride these past 19 seasons have been. None of it could have been possible without the incomparable @ellenpompeo, the one and only Meredith Grey. This isn’t a goodbye, it’s a see ya later! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Ellen, Meredith and Grey Sloan Memorial. #greysanatomy.”
