It looks like Seattle Grace will boast a cast of familiar faces next season. Six of the series’ original cast members have signed new, two-year contracts.
With many of the veteran’s contracts up this year, there had been doubt that many of the original cast would return for season nine. But fear not as veterans Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Chandra Wilson, Justin Chambers and James Pickens Jr. have all reportedly signed two-year deals according to Deadline, guaranteeing they will all remain at least through a season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy.
So whatever cliff-hanger Shonda Rimes has in store, rest assured these doctors will all survive into next fall.
