Is Patrick Dempsey Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' For Good?

Is Patrick Dempsey Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' For Good?


It sounds like Dr. McDreamy is checking out of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for good.

Patrick Dempsey is leaving Grey’s Anatomy after 11 seasons with the show, according to a new feature in this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, which some fans got a hold of before tonight’s (April 23) episode could air. See below.

A source confirms to that Patrick recently filmed his death scene on location in a Los Angeles park.

According to Page Six, Patrick was forced out by creator Shonda Rhimes.

Patrick has been acting like a diva and has clashed with Shonda. She suspended him for a while, and the word on set is that he isn’t coming back full time,” a source told the paper, adding, “Given all the past problems with Katherine Heigl and Isaiah Washington, there is little tolerance on the show for troublesome talent.”

    Time to end the show. I don’t really know what’s left to do with it. Unless they’re trying to turn it into the new E.R.

    Let’s be honest we ALL saw this coming. Patrick Dempsey has been in and out ALL season. It’s clear her doesn’t want to be there. But he’s been there from the beginning and I’m sure he stuck around for legacy. It is time to wrap this show up. I love this show, big fan. It’s honestly one of my favorites, but all good things must come to an end. Seriously though, Private Practice literally ran it’s entire series while this was and still is in production.

    Stopped watching after they killed George off…checked in for the plane crash and was glad I stopped watching….

  • Enilda Rivera

    I will be very sad if McDreamy dies. But the show is called Grey’s Anatomy so most likely Meredith will end up like her mother.

  • Benny Ehud

    Yep….Money Money Money!

  • Meredith

    I’m dying like my heart is broken!!!

  • Barry

    Since six years, we have a main actor leaving the show each season.
    So… Justin Chambers for next year ?


    I don’t really think that Shonda pushed him off the show. He has been dealing with a lot with his divorce and Shonda gave him some time off at his request. I would take the suspension rumors with a grain of salt.

  • Lindsey Bergman

    If they kill off McDreamy they should just end the series cause there is nothing left then. My mom and I enjoy watching this show together and we both agree we will not watch Grey’s anymore if they do a season 12 without Patrick.

  • Cheyenne

    That show should have ended four seasons ago.

  • Pineapple

    Please just end the show!!!!!! You cant keep it going forever. I just cant deal with watching Meredith after Shepard dies. Its not fair. Shes been through enough. Them them be happy and just end it.

  • lag8

    If he wanted to leave, they should have made it better. Stopping in the middle of the road to find his cell? Rotten, just rotten. Shonda should be ashamed of herself.

  • Becky Call

    I had not watched this show since Denny died…now this season….ugh!

  • Yvonne Pimental

    This was such horrible writing in the last few minutes it makes you wonder who Really wrote it, Shonda or someone else. Would Meredith drag her kids with her, would she not have called Her colleagues, wouldn’t she have had him flown to the hospital she and Derek are part owners of? Would she have pulled the plug so quickly in a Podunk backwoods hospital? Hardly! And the acting, especially by the staff of said hospital sucked.

    Shonda if you wrote this hang your head in shame.

    Btw I thought he had a 2 year contract, as yet still in place.

  • Pam Rutledge

    NOOOOOO I cried the whole death scene.. I love this show have not missed ONE… But, what now, where will they go with Meredith???

  • shoes4life

    Time to end Grey’s.

  • shoes4life

    I wonder if Patrick left to try and save his marriage?

  • Melanie mark

    I cried through the whole show! I knew it was coming but didn’t want to believe it! I didn’t see Patrick much last year and only a few times this year but I saw this coming a mile away when they laid in bed two shows ago and he said “It’s a quick trip out and back and I’ll never leave again” You knew they were setting it up for an exit but I have to say I like the fact they sent him out a hero helping those other people from the first car accident..before taking him out but I don’t think Derek would have been so stupid as to stop in the middle of a turn like that in the middle of the street! Not after what had just happened! I’m devastated and sad for the characters they were truly meant to be! A genuine fairy tale couple! RIP Derek and Good luck to you Patrick in whatever you do next!
    On a side note: I wouldn’t mind if they decide to open next season with a dream sequence of Meredith dreaming something bad happened to Derek but when she wakes up he’s right beside her in bed! Like they did on Dallas so many years ago. Opps, I just aged myself.
    Thanks for listening !

    Given the number of rumors regarding Patrick’s attitude on set, she probably thought she was giving him the send off he deserved.
