If Ellen Pompeo had hinted that it might be time to put an end to “Grey’s Anatomy”, the actress has just signed a new contract to return to the medical series, with a new salary increase in the key.
A decision allowing the American channel ABC to announce in advance the start of production of a 19e season, thus beating its own longevity record for a medical series broadcast in prime time on television.
“I couldn’t be more excited to continue telling the story of the adventures of Meredith, Bailey, Richard, and the other Gray Sloan Memorial Doctors for one more season,” said series creator Shonda Rhimes, in a press release published by the American site The Hollywood Reporter.
For the moment, however, no information on the future of Grey’s anatomy beyond season 19 has been revealed. The hearings of the 18e, currently being broadcast across the Atlantic, are excellent.
Like those of Station 19, his spin-off which awaits its almost certain extension for a season 6. For Ellen Pompeo, whose name also appears in the executive production of both series, this new salary increase granted by ABC allows him to stay at the top of the list of highest paid actresses on American television. For at least one more year.
