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

by 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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
