Ellen Pompeo is leaving Grey’s Anatomy

After 17 years, it’s over

“Grey’s Anatomy” end for Ellen Pompeo

Ellen Pompeo has had enough after 19 seasons: the American now confirms that she is leaving the cult series “Grey’s Anatomy” – despite the alleged XXL fee.


Meredith Gray’s character leaves Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital.

For “Grey’s Anatomy” fans, it’s a shock: Ellen Pompeo (53) is quitting her job in the medical series. “I am endlessly grateful and humbled by the love and support you have shown me, Meredith Gray, and the show over 19 seasons,” she captioned the pic on Instagram.

There has long been speculation about Ellen Pompeo. Because in recent seasons, the American actress who plays the main role has increasingly withdrawn and has been seen only sporadically. Instead, she increasingly worked behind the camera and was responsible for individual episodes of the award-winning series as a producer. This was said to be the condition of the star of the series – in addition to XXL’s fee of over half a million dollars per episode – not to leave the serial doctor earlier.
