Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers along with James Pickens, Jr. and Chandra Wilson have signed new two-year deals according to Deadline. While we can't speak for the second year -- which would carry the show into its 10th seaon in 2013-14 -- a ninth season renewal for the 2012-13 season is merely a formality (one of many remaining for ABC). Those formalities will be taken care of by this Tuesday, May 15.

    ok, am i imagining things, or did patrick dempsey say before this season started this would be his last? or was that a rumor?

  • SarahL

    Wise choices. It is not like most of them have major acting careers ahead.

  • TheFlyGuy2

    @Sid: Look at Desperate Housewives as an example. The cast also signed a two year deal, but the show is ending after only one.

    I wonder if Izzy is comming back, she is or was my favorite.

  • Ingmar

    If I were ABC I would give Grey’s a 2 year renewal with S10 being its final season.

    As for the death….SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS

    Richard is the one dying. His contract is just a smoke-screen. An extra posted her experience on the finale and she saw him get zipped into a body-bag. Derek, Mark and Julia are involved in the cliffhanger.

    But ofcourse that could be a smoke-screen aswell. In that case I fear for Arizona. She’s a fan favorite and she doesnt have a SL going in the finale along with Callie. Everyone has a SL but them….

    I’m sure they announced the completion of the contract agreements because they have to get their advertising committed for next year but I’m glad they did. This has gone on for too long.

    I am preparing myself for an Arizona death. I think after her friend dies and it makes back up too many feeling of her dead brother, she becomes depressed and kills herself. Shocking and sad. That’s my prediction

    Somehow the show needs to give the main characters a reason to stay at Seattle Grace. In the promo Yang was telling Meredith that Derek got sucked out the window of the plane – if he is still alive (and I guess he is since he signed a new contract) then he is probably hurt pretty bad. Meredith will have a hard time coping with an ill husband and a baby so that could be a reason for Christina to stay – to help her “person” even though she tried to claim that Meredith wasn’t her person anymore. I hope its not Lexie who dies; I think more opens up if it is Arizona – Karev would stay to step into a fast track to being chief of Pediatrics; Callie may decide she can’t stay without Arizona and goes home to sort things out. Mark looked fine in the promo for next week and very intent on getting Lexie out of where she was trapped….so interesting things could happen there. And if the AZ and Callie thing isn’t right then the one that leaves would probably be April as she wasn’t going to be re-hired anyway. However it goes its going to be interesting and frustrating that we probably won’t know much until the fall.
