Grey's Anatomy Won't Write in Pregnancy of Sarah Drew

at . Comments

The pregnancy of Sarah Drew won't be incorporated into the Grey's Anatomy scripts in season eight. Probably for the best, as it would de-virginize April pretty fast.

That's creator Shonda Rhimes' take, anyway.

“Sarah’s due in January or February so that would be a little extreme,” she tells TV Line, though she isn’t ruling out the possibility of sex for April this season.

“I’m hopeful,” she says. “My fingers are crossed that April finally gets some.”

Not that being chief resident won't keep Dr. Kepner busy enough.

“Watching April try to be in charge of people like Cristina and Alex and Jackson is a pretty impossible task, and it’s made for comedy,” laughs Rhimes. “It’s one of the funniest things we’re working on this season.”

As for whether the effects of the shooting rampage are finally healing?

“I think so,” Rhimes says. “What’s nice about where we are [this season] is that the experience still informs them in a huge way, but it doesn’t define them.”

Waste. Of. Time.


Very clever creator,very clever.


Only now you're posting this?


how about write out Aprils character all together! I am sure the majority will not miss her


Can't wait to see April as Chief Resident, it will be so funny seeing her giving orders to Cristina, and Cristina rolling her eyes thinking 'seriously', Alex and Jackson will be funny to watch taking orders from April, April is sweet and they are macho men who will fight her authority all the way. We need some comedy now and then. It's finally September 1st and 21 days till the 2 hour Premiere, can't wait.


Please Do Something With April's Voice - It Goes Right Through You- Hope She Gets The Dr's To Finally Like And Listen To Her. As For Mer & Der - Please Please Shonda Get Them To Sign On For Two More Years - They Are Needed To Carry Grey's Without Them Forget It.


I wish they would just write her off and focus more storyline time to more interesting characters.


Can you say B O R I N G?????


I agree, April has waited so long for the right guy to come along. To rush into it and get pregnant would just ruin the character and casting her off with Karev is a waste because as we've seen, he's not good for her. Bailey also stated that point when she was drunk


I do not care about April or Jackson they are a waste of time and Story lines. I really wish that Shonda focus on the character that are worth it like Meredith for once!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
