WARNING: SPOILER ALERTS
Grey’s Anatomy fans – I don’t quite know how to tell you this…
One of your favourite characters is exiting the show – and they’re not moving intersate.
Yes, it seems that after 10 seasons, Hollywood’s most scrumptious doctor was shockingly killed off during an episode that aired on Thursday night on the ABC in the US.
Dempsey, 49, just signed a two-year contract that would have taken him through to a 12th season of Greys.
It’s this fact that makes McDreamy’s sudden departure even more shocking.
According to a report on people.com, the episode in question made it very, very clear that Dempsey’s run on the show is definitely over.
“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,’ ” creator/executive producer Shonda Rhimes said in a statement. “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.”
