Grey's Anatomy Signs Quartet of Regulars to New Contracts

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy has signed four key cast members to brand new contracts.

ABC insiders confirm that Justin Chambers, Sara Ramirez, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr. have all signed deals that keep them in Seattle through Season 12; each of their previous contracts were scheduled to run out after this season.

The network is yet to actually renew Grey's Anatomy for even one more season, but it's clear Shonda Rhimes and company are planning for a very long run of their series.

In January, Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey signed similar deals.

Sandra Oh, of course, is set to leave the drama on the Grey's Anatomy Season 10 finale (May 15), while Gaius Charles and Tessa Ferrer will exit Grey Sloan Memorial at some point in the next two weeks.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Meredith: You're me.
Amelia: What?
Meredith: You're me before Derek. I can be here for you. I can do this. I get you. I can be a twisted sister for you. Just tell me how do you want to play this?

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)
