Grey's Anatomy > How Many More Seasons Will Grey's Anatomy Run? > Comments Page 2
Greys can't end and Mer and Derek can't leave if they do the show WOULDN'T be the same without them. Lost and lots of other series kept going for years and they were S*** with S*** storylines. Greys have great storylines Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee keep it going and make Ellen Pompeo sign and new contract
Grey's gabble tends to have the storylines first. It's more iterested in following the actors too. They still promote actors who have left GA too.
Plus isn't standard for actors to sign to do 7 seasons. Ellen said she was signed for 7 seasons ( she said this prior to her pregnancy being announced)
I agree nelson. Not sure how long any character spin offs would last though. I think PP would struggle too if left on its own with out GA
I think it needs to end when Ellen and Patrick are done. Then there needs to be a spin off for the actors still interested in their characters.
dont want it to end!.. i love Grey's anatomy
OOOOpppps sorry i wasn't trying to correct your information i thought you were asking if Shonda set a date so my mistake :) as for your thoughts concerning the show if Ellen doesn't renew after season 8 i totally agree with you :)
I never said that Shonda set an end date for the show. I said IF they had a set end date...it would give the writers enough time to tie up loose ends and give the fans the payoff they deserve. I think it would be better that way than going from one season to the next without knowing if that was going to be their last season and then leaving some stories hanging.
I still stand by my thoughts on the matter. If EP is serious about season 8 being her last season, I think that is when the show should wrap up. Let them do a spin-off or something with the remaining characters, but Grey's Anatomy without Meredith Grey just isn't going to be Grey's Anatomy. I love Lexie, but she is not as complex a character to be able to carry the show the way Meredith has been able to.
Wow! If Grey's does end, it would have brought me from fourth grade (when I first started watching it), to the end of my freshman year of high school! That's a LONG time. I'll be really sad if it does...I've sort of grown up with this show. I've thrown myself into the drama and felt like I was there with them. It's even helped me deal with some of my own drama..(cheesy, right?) haha. If it really has to end in two seasons, then I hope they end it well. And I don't think it would go on very well without Ellen/Meredith..unless her storyline has an appropriate ending. Like Izzie's storyline...it didn't tie up correctly for me. George's was okay...(I wish when Mer would have her McBaby that George could see... :( ) But Ellen's has to be GOOD. EXCELLENT.
@ Abbie and JDC
Shonda never set an end date for the show all she said was the show is sure to be on for the year 2012 wether after that they would continue with it depends on many things first the ratings,audience wether ABC wishes to renew the show we shouldn't also forget Production Cost some popular shows got cancelled not becuase of ratings but production cost and the most impportant example is FRIENDS on NBC and the other reasons wether Shonda wishes to continue with the show if she fails to persuade the main actors Ellen & Patrick to renew their contracts and as i said before i have a strong feeling that if one doesn't renew the other won't 'cose they're like one package but i think if the finale is of any indication next season would be extraordinary so i think Shonda will do her best for Ellen and Patrick to stay ( i mean she said that she would go on her knees and beg them to stay)but i mean we just adore this show that we're worrying ourselves way ahead of time :) relax
I think the show should end after season 8 if that's how long EP is staying until. I would be sad to see it go, but Grey's Anatomy without Meredith Grey as the lead just wouldn't be Grey's Anatomy.
I think if the writers had a set end date, they would be able to tie up loose ends and get all the characters to where they want them to eventually end up, hopefully with some sort of payoff for the fans who stuck by them through it all.
If they really wanted to, they could probably do another spin-off with a few of the more popular characters...but once EP leaves, that is when Grey's Anatomy should take its final curtain call.
I don't think it would be bad if it ended with season 8, but who doesn't want their favorite show to go on forever (assuming it remains fulfilling). My main concern with Ellen Pompeo not renewing her contract makes me feel like if they continue the show after season 8, perhaps she will make appearances but won't be in every episode. And if Meredith Grey appears less in episodes, Derek will most likely too since they are associated with one another. It's like you can't take the Mer or Der out of MerDer, or the whole thing vanishes. And if Derek isn't on the show anymore, then I'm done for sure. He is the character I am the most interested in, and his relationships too.
As far as i know (actually i'm sure) all the original cast has signed to stay for at least 8 seasons so the only one that was let go without asking was Isaiah Washington but the others they asked to be released from their contract Katherine Heigl's been bugging Shonda Rhimes and ABC for 3 years now and T.R knight asked also to be released so it was not Shonda's wish as for Patrick Dempsey & Ellen Pompeo they never asked to be released all the buzz about them leaving is for nothing in many interviews i heard Patrick saying that he's fortunate to be working and having this chance and he's there as long as they want him and for Ellen also she always said she was thrilled o be on the show all she said was that she might not renew her contract after season 8 if the show continued but she added that it doesn't mean that she won't 'cose all is possible in life... so all i can say is don't worry we're on the safe side for @ least 2 more seasons assuming that the show will continue a
Hm... I went to Grey's Gabble for the first time which was interesting footage I haven't seen before. I must say Katherine Heigl on the Jay Leno show was interesting. She knows how to be entertaining and I felt bad for her when she was saying "this is so horrible" about her brother dieing.
So did you mean they are doing an extra season after season 7 because they are signed up until season 8? They have always been contracted up until season 8. I thought you meant another season, which would be season 9? Yes, no?
Also, anyone else got other spoiler sites that updated as good as tvfanatic? Ew.com doesn't seem too up to date, but Grey's Gabble was.
I can't give you a link JDC, but I look at things like Spoiler TV, Grey's Gabble, ew.com. etc. I read all this info in the last month or so. But GA does earn ABC a lot of money, PD and EP have reportedly signed up to S8, and SR does want them to stay with GA
OH MY.... Link me to the source please. This better not be a joke, because if it isn't you just made my freaking summer...
GA is the fourth highest earner for tv programmes. Other series e.g. 'The Mentalist' have higher ratings, but not necessarily a high spending target audience advertising revenue wise who'll buy the dvd also.
SR reportedly said she'd go down on her knees to keep EP and PD in GA. Well they've agreed to appear in an extra season, which really is great news. But I would hate to see GA decline and outlive it's original sparkle, like ER. Lost has finished after S6. Smallville will end after S8.If GA finishes after S8 when EP and PD have had enough, that'll be OK.
GA started with MerDer, it should have an end scene of MerDer. No GA with out THE GREY, Meredith!
if Capshaw, Ramirez, Oh and Wilson I wouldn't had kept watching the show, but now there are all full time. And I LOVE them! And I just Can't wait for season 7, 8 and hopefully 9!!
The show won't be able to survive the lost of the two mains. A percentage of the Grey watchers watch it for Derek and Meredith and i don't think there's enough material for the show to continue for too long.
In this last season Shonda has experimented the introdution of new characters and this didn't do so well to show.This means that the original cast is and 'll be always what likes to the pure people without george and izzie.The season final has shown who's that has made great this show ,the original cast and the main character of the show,that's MEREDITH ,CRISTINA,DEREK,ALEX,AND BAILEY FOR THE LIFE.So i 'm not able continue to see GA without Meredith in the first place and Derek in the second place and for continuing with Cri ,Alex and Bailey.Lexie cuoldn't never take the place of Meredith .I watch the show for her ,because i 'm a dark and thirsty person,too.I 'll not watch more this show without Meredith or other that i just said.
Well i just love the show i would probably watch it if it went on forever :) but let's be realistic it depends on many things i mean if Ellen & Patrick didn't renew their contract in 2012 then there should be no point in continuing another thing is that gladly and saddly at the same time Grey's is on one of the most important tv company which is ABC but it's sad 'cose ABC doesn't allow her shows to go on if they start to lose market share (audience) so they would cancel a show even if it attracts 7 or 6 million viewers where other channels would keep a show even if it attracts 1 or 2 million viewers or maybe less............... Let's just hope they'll continue to be creative enough i mean if they pull a few episodes in S7 like the finale we'll be on the safe side beyond season 8 but i don't wanna think about it and be depressed 2 years ahead :)
Well, i strongly believe in my merder happiness, and I like the way it's going. But after seeing the way the show's quality has been decreasing over time, instead of getting better, I think that this should actually be the last season. Season 7. The End. Meredith and Derek will explore their relationship/marriage this season, build there house, have a kid. And it could end... Them... Happily ever after. What i would find SUPER cool, is if they created a MerDer spin-off, where MerDer and McBaby move back to New York and live there lives. This would open a new opportunity for them to show more of Derek's character form his past, as well as open doors to getting to know his family. Thats the one thing that we missed during the 6 years that Grey's Has been running - Derek's background. We might get to see a little of that in Season 7, because his mother and sisters will probably come out after they hear he's injured. I believe that Grey's has already passed it's peak, but is still interest
I say after this season they should fast forward a couple of years and make season 8 the final one, wrapping up everyone's stories as attendings and daily lives and stuff like that. have an epic storyline mid-season, and then end happily :)
There should be an end date for sure. MerDer hold much appeal on this show and just because Ellen said she might not renew doesn't means he won't appear again. If they decide to make the show last after she doesn't renew, they will probably slowly transition the story lines away from MerDer. I mean Derek will lose out on his story lines since he is associated with Meredith. You can't just give Derek story lines and have Ellen show up like 2-3 times a season... It wouldn't work. They should just end the show if she doesn't want to remain the main character. This is Grey's Anatomy and as this has been said before, the show opened with MerDer so it should end with MerDer.
Just do like a flash forward such as Charmed at the end. That is a proper way to end. Although Grey's goes in depth for each character, so you would probably need a series finale of 2 episodes fully on a flash forward to wrap things up. It would take many episodes to wrap it up properly. Unless they spend an
The only problem I see with Grey's going on for a long time is how many story lines can they come up with surgery-wise? Half the show is about the patients and the strange or interesting cases they have. Since there are so many medical dramas out there, a lot of patient encounters have to be repeated. Like the anesthesia one, where the woman wakes up in the middle of surgery. There may have been a different reason for her waking up, but it's been done.
I know that the field of surgery is as broad as they come, and there will never be always the same patient, the same diagnosis, etc. But in the world of television, they can only come up and repeat so many cases before it becomes old. That's what happened with ER. How many GSWs and car accidents can you see before it starts to get boring? Grey's Anatomy, while it focuses on how residents and attendings and the hospital works as a whole, could not actually be a show without patients and diseases.
I'm certainly not ar
