Ellen Pompeo is ‘Super Happy’ About Grey’s Anatomy Exit

December 14, 2022

After nearly two decades as the star of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo is stepping back in her role as Dr. Meredith Grey—a decision that the actress says she’s “super happy” with. The Shonda Rhimes-led series, which began in 2005 and is the longest-running primetime medical drama in TV history, followed Pompeo’s Dr. Grey through her residency and career at Seattle Grace Hospital. Over its 19 seasons, Pompeo has earned multiple awards and nominations for her role on Grey’s, but the actress tells Drew Barrymore that she’s ready to move on to other projects.
