Ellen Pompeo plots 'Grey's Anatomy' exit

May 6, 2010, 8:40 PM EST

WENN -- Ellen Pompeo has dealt a blow to fans of TV medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" -- she's planning to exit the show in 2012.

The actress, who plays titular character Meredith Grey in the series, has revealed she's considering walking away when her contract is up in two years' time.

She tells TV news show "Extra," "I think the world has had a lot of Meredith Grey ... I haven't said I'm moving on; I have said that when my contract is up after season eight, I would probably not renew."

Ok...thats not bad...two years, alot can change in that time. but I agree with her 8yrs run is great! might be time for something else something even better by then!

Was the same way with ER...it got old! should've hung it up awhile ago!

you can't have "Greys" without her! soo its ok! I understand!

I have a love/hate thing going on with Meridith. While I can't imagine the show without her, I would love to get the chance!!!

It seems that Patrick Dempsey would bail when he gets the chance as well. He and Izzie seem to have the biggest options career-wise, why stick around tv if you can be on the big screen?
