Ellen Pompeo: Leaving Grey's Anatomy?

Ellen Pompeo takes her adorable daughter Stella to a playground for a day of fun on Friday (May 27) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress recently opened up to TV Line about possibly leaving her hit show after the end of next season, which marks the end of her contract.

“No one has asked us to come back after Season 8, so I couldn’t presume that I’m coming back … if I haven’t been invited,” Ellen said.

“If that’s what Chyler wants, and that’s what everyone wants, of course!” she added, about Chyler Leigh‘s character becoming the prominent character on the show.

FYI: Ellen is wearing TOMS Earthslate Classics.

Looks like a genuinely involved and engaged parent — not someone merely hamming it up for the benefit of the paparazzi like Gwen (I need a nanny to tie my shoes) Stefani!!!

Good for you, Ellen!

yeah, ive heard that the show might end after season 8 but if it doesnt and she will leave…well, that would be just wrong. its not greys anatomy without meredith!!! :(

She looks like a real hands on mom unlike other celebs in hollyweird.

@Brainy box: And who cares the father Ellen is a great mom, they dont need him!!!!

@Rochard. Yeah Ellen and her daughter looks happy without him Im personally think that Ellen and Stella looks better without him, he is ugly for Ellen. Besides Ellen and Stella dont seem sad at all. Sorry my english :)))))

Adorable mommy & daughter moment :)

You’re disgusting.

If Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh or Chandra Wilson leave Greys, then I’m out. I love those characters!

I don’t much care for her character on the show or think she’s that great of an actress but have to comment – some of the comments here are disgusting. She’s having fun playing with her baby yet some feel the need to drag race, etc into it, you should be ashamed.

bABY looks all black

Adorable little black girl!

well the show is sort of fading out any way …so its realy better to end it on high note rather then keeping streaching it with same polt lines over and over again

The kid’s MIXED, not black.

If she leaves and Grey’s continues, well… honestly… who actually thinks the show will survive? Especially if Patrick Dempsey leaves as well. As well as the other originals. If no originals stay, the cast is gonna be crap, and the ratings will drop lower than they already have. Lets just hope it ends after season 8.

NO, Grey’s is nothing without the original characters. I don’t care for Chyler’s character at all, I find her annoying.

they looks so cute together

@Maddie: I think if she leaves, Patrick should leave too. Or vice versa. I love them together and I don’t really care to see what the writers have in store for either if one of them leaves.
I think the person to leave should be Sara Ramirez. I can’t stand her character.
Regardless, I think season 8 will be the last I tune in for. I like Chyler, but I don’t care for her character. How long can her and Eric’s charater circle around each other? It got old after the first breakup.

grey’s anatomy would never be the same without meredith on it. if mer will leave, then derek should leave too. it would be a crap if Derek will stay while the love of his life is out, but as I said, GA will never be the same without MERDER. shonda will regret it if she pursue another season after season 8 without the two main cast on it.

by the way, ellen looks a very loving mom as usual… her daughter is so adorable ♥
