'Grey's Anatomy' Showrunner Opens Up About How Series Will End

There’s been a lot of speculation about just when and how Grey’s Anatomy will sign off the air.

“We don’t know when the show is really ending yet. But the truth is, this year could be it,” star Ellen Pompeo shared in an interview last year about how last season could’ve been the end.

Now, showrunner Krista Vernoff is opening up about the ideas she has.

During an appearance on the latest episode of the At Home with the Creative Coalition podcast, Krista opened up about not having just one idea for the end, but several.

“I have something percolating in my mind,” she shared. “And the percolating changes. I had some ideas percolating during the first seven seasons — I used to pitch things to Shonda [Rhimes] and she’d go, ‘That’s a season eight idea.’”

Krista continued, “Meaning, that’s the final-season-of-the-show idea. And now, we blew so far past season eight, we’re in season 18. So your idea of where the characters are going to end changes each year.”

“Every year, I never know if I’m writing the last season of the show, literally. I percolate new ideas every year. If we ended it this year, what would it be?”

Just last week, Grey’s fans got a big surprise about a former guest star who was returning to the show as a series regular. See who it was here!
