Dear Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Chandra Wilson, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers and James Pickens Jr.,
As you may or may-not-have-noticed during your recent trips up and down the red carpet, or when sitting down to interviews with intrepid journalists of both the print and digital variety, there is one question at the forefront of everybody’s mind. That question: Is this your last season on GREY’S ANATOMY?
Now, before you give us the exclusive answer to that very question [Which by the way can be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org), please note that the purpose of this open letter is in no way to encourage you to remain on the show that turned you into a household name. After-all, unlike some of your colleagues who shall remain nameless (cough*killersmadewhatattheboxoffice*cough) you stuck around for the entirety of your seven year contract. Rather, our objective is only to take this opportunity to respectfully request that you make your intentions public, and soon.
Suffice it to say, it has been a little less than three weeks since GREY’S ANATOMY ended its season and we’ve already had our fill of headlines touting that “[Insert name of your favorite GREY’S ANATOMY star here] is leaving the show!” What’s more, after a string of insanely abrupt exits by big name like Christopher Meloni (LAW & ORDER: SVU), Lisa Edelstein (HOUSE) and most recently of all, Laurence Fishburne (CSI), fans — also known as those little people responsible for the multitude of zeros at the end of your paycheck — deserves the opportunity for their showrunner Shonda Rhimes to craft a proper and fond farewell.
