Fans of ABC’s hit show ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ have been left hanging by a thread, as the TV show regulars were unsure if they’d return to the medical drama. A couple of seasons back, there was uncertainty about the majority of the original cast returning. We let you all in how Sandra Oh (Dr.Cristina Yang) has confirmed she is officially not returning to ABC’s number one hit show (read about it here). It seems as though fans of the show have been sitting on pins and needles lately. However, recent news may change how they feel, as it has been confirmed that both Ellen Pompeo (Dr. Meredith Grey) and Patrick Dempsey (Dr. Derek Shepherd) have officially inked new two-year deals. The show itself hasn’t been picked up for two more seasons. However, with both the shows original stars signing deals for the near future, abc will most likely renew the show for at least two more seasons.

Patrick Dempsey has a love for race car driving and when he’s not filming ‘Grey’s’ the actor can be found on the race track.  The actor is so serious about the racing lifestyle that many close to him believed he wouldn’t renew his contract with the show and instead focus on his racing future. Ellen Pompeo on the other hand is very different. She is the mother of a beautiful baby girl, lives close to the studio where ‘Grey’s’ is filmed and has stated that she has a wonderful work/life balance and wouldn’t give it up for the world.

*Show originals Justin Chambers (Dr. Alex Karev), James Pickens Jr.(Dr. Richard Webber) and Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey) have yet to sign new deals.
