Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy: Clearing Way For (Possible) Cast Departures? > Comments Page 2
I'm not surprised that the fifth years exit could be down to taking fellowships elsewhere. Won't it just be Mer, Cris and Alex who'll leave as I'm sure SD & JW will have contracts that will keep them on in GA. It would be wonderful to see Kepner and Avery leave SGH though.
There would be a caverous hole though if the remaining original cast left though. Not sure how long GA would keep it's fans if we see the end of MerDer, Cris, Alex, Bailey and Webber though
aww I will not watch greys anatomy anymore if all the main characters are gone..it wont be the same... thats so sad:( how can you not have derek and meredith anymore!!
I have not watched the show since Isiah Washington was fired. I tried after a season, but there was no sizzle left. I would give it another chance if Dr. Preston Burke returned. Also, never a Derek fan on the show nor the actor, both seemed arrogant and too pompous for me. Also, was happy to see George and Izzy depart!
Are you serious? Idk what show your watching but the show is still good the storie lines are amazing. I feel like were watching two differnt shows I hope they go for at least! Three more sesons
Ok this is the deal here we can't change everything I have awaited sooo long for a show like this where the charaters feel real I love the show the way it is and it cannot change I will always watch but I might not be a die-hard fan like I am now mer/der can't leave they just got to a good place and I love everone else please please don't change it this is the one show (beside privet practice) that I love to watch!
I truly wish the show would just END! I was once a big fan of it, but now it makes me sick to watch it! It is not like in the beginning, with good stories, something that made you want to watch week after week, and to see your favorite characters. Please don't keep it going like ER, because that should of ended many years before it did!
I'll just say that I only watched Grey's once in a blue moon in the first five seasons but didn't actually start watching it on a weekly bases until sixth season. The original cast never made me want to start watching the show in the first place so it won't make me stop watching Grey's if they leave now. Don't get me wrong, I actually really do enjoy most of them and will be sad if they do leave but personally, I was always more interested in the non-original cast (minus April and Jackson).
it's time to end DerMer's story,agree that let B cast take good story!
18~35 reviewers are careless about the sad story of Richard/Adele.
Try to hire other hot guy doctor for Lexi and April,I'm interestless to watch the triangle of M/L/J or L/J/April, There's nothing Left to Say
Teddy NEEDS to be kicked off the show 4 a while!
She told Owen he needs to DIE b/c he 'killed' her 'husband'
You mean that guy she married so he could have insurance & then went on dates with other men & only started liking him for a couple weeks before he died?
THAT'S IS SUCK BS ON HER PART!
Out of the original characters, the only ones I would really miss would be Alex, Cristina and Bailey, even though Bailey has been annoying me recently, especially with the lurking in Mark and Jackson's OR. I would also like to see more development in the Richard / Adele story.
Otherwise, Derek has been horrible all season. Fair dues, having his work trashed wasn't the biggest mood lifter, but he's hardly the McDreamy we all loved back in season 1. Meredith is a character I've never really liked to be honest, though she'd had some good moments this season. The name of the show might be Grey's Anatomy, but what would Mere be without Cristina, or the other characters provoking her into action?
Grey's relies on the "B" cast, I've found that some of my favourite storylines has been "B" cast related - Mark and Lexie have been given the best love story in my opinion, and I doubt anyone could argue that some of the best acting has come from Loretta Devine and Kate Burton.
Have been a faithful devoted fan since season 1, put up with all the breakups, makeups and everything in between.
I think ABC are keeping everything under raps for all we know contracts have probably already signed sealed but just not delivered to the people that want to know the fans. If you look at it not one ABC renewal has been announced yet so I'm thinking they will wait til end April/May to tell us the official statement otherwise will spoil SL's for finales.
i want to see christina (sans owen) and meredith stay. i would miss alex. the rest i would miss a little, but i could be fine without. derek kind of annoys me. i would rather see him on the show only occassionally. i think it will be good to cut down the cast so that we can put more thought into the storylines. as long as the twisted sisters, calzona and alex stay, i'm happy!
@ JR said If ABC wants to save money, they should end Private Practice and bring over Derek's sister and Tyne Daly over to Grey's. Get rid of the "not needed characters".
How exactly would that save money ? ABC would still have to run another show in place of PrP
you said and I quote washington said "i am no punk"
Thats not true he used the word fa##ot and then used it again during a live interview on TV .Get the story strait .IW is a homophobic , loud mouth bully with anger management issues who had already been fired twice before for losing it and in one case assaulted a crew member .He smeared Jim Pickens ,made sexually and racially innuendo laced comments about EP and the reason he never got to play Derek (which he auditioned for ) ,and blamed and continues to blame everyone else in sight apart from himself for what happened
really I agree... leave the cast as it is..and just renew their contracts already... the show is great the way it is.... there are so many stupid reality shows on...and not enough good programs on.... and when you start taking the original cast off the show is just not the sme anymore and it just goes down hill so if you it to fail, lost the main characters.... its great the way it is.... we have followed mer/der since the beginning. they are the best... & so belong together. almost like for real. and mark and lexie shld also get back together. as we know they are both not
happy the places they are at the moment. sincerely j.
I will cry forever if they all leave and separate. It's going to suck.
In all honesty, it is very realistic that they would be going to other hospitals and they would be separated from eacth and potentially have fleeting relationships. They can't all work in the same hospital for the rest of their careers together.That being said I would like them all to remian :p
be sad to see any of the original cast leave. lexie doesn't qualify to carry the "grey" legacy, as the icon of the series is and was ellis grey, meredith's mother, to whom lexie has no connection. i'd like to see richard return as chief, preston burke return and as well, george's character return (as he was not officially identified as injured in the bus accident). for the record, i never bought that whole gay slur incident. the way it was reported was that washington and dempsey had a argument and washington said "i am no punk", which in the real world of that age group means i'm no a weakling. no reference at all to anyone's sexual orientation and it is unfortunate that all the hoopla had to follow instead of clearing up the misunderstanding right from the beginning. ummm....maybe george shouldn't come back and "izzy" had gotten just a little too self absorbed and forgetting the fact that the entire cast are basically co-stars.
I hope that Grey's Anatomy will continue for a long time it's one of my favorite series, it would be nice to see Issy come back, let's hope that all the cast members will remain on the series, I enjoy it so much that I even watch repeats when it's not on. I hope Shonda will continue with this series including Private Practice and the crossovers.

Love the show keep it going,
Just a note many years ago they had Doctor Kildare and Ben Casey those shows are gone never to be seen again let's hope it's not the case with Grey's Anatomy the character are great. Callie, Arizona, Christina and all the rest.
I wish the season wasn't so short, but then again I do watch repeats.
it's simple to me, I'll drop away GA if Sandra/Cristina leave GA, no matter who orignal cast will stay, coz it makes me sad to watch Owen love someone else!!
by the way,I wonder how ABC can keep so many cast when GA S8 keep the rating around 3.1~3.3 ?? it's reasonable some of 14 people should leave and recruit new intern in
Shonda has said before that she set the show up so that it could continue without the original characters. Some of them will be back, and I hope that Ellen Pompeo is one of them, but I think she has said that she's not sure she'll come back.
"Fans fell in love with the original characters?" Which "fans?" I never watched the show in the early years and never fell in love with them, especially the Fab 5. Bailey, the Chief and Season 4+ Cristina are okay but the "B" players were always more interesting to me--Mark, Callie, Denny, Erica, Arizona, Owen, April. That said, I still wouldn't want to see the originals leave but if they do "se la vie."
I really don't see why at least most of them won't be back. Justin for sure is a lock-in for Season9, he has five kids to support so I doubt he's willing to opt out of a GREAT, high-paying job in exchange for a huge hunt for work. Same with Ellen and Sandra-both could probably easily find jobs elsewhere, but why take the chance? As for Patrick, I don't think he needs the work as much as these three but it still irks me a little that he would be wiling to "pursue other interests" and leave his devoted fans hanging for the rest of the series. Grey's will surely be different if any of them depart, but while I love them all I have no doubt Grey's could still carry on with Lexie as the namesake. Chyler is a beautiful, talented woman and I think she would fit the role nicely.
Who writes some of these comments... Shonda Rhimes?? These contract negotiations should have been wrapped up 3 months ago. The only reason they are not done is incompetency and the fact that they are screwing with the actors. They should can can resolve all the issues if they really want to. This show has done well in the US and in other countries. This is because fans fell in love with the original characters. I won't watch this show without Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo. If ABC wants to save money, they should end Private Practice and bring over Derek's sister and Tyne Daly over to Grey's. Get rid of the "not needed characters".
