Patrick Dempsey Talks "Grey's Anatomy"
You’d think starring on one of TV’s hottest shows would keep you busy enough, but Patrick Dempsey is a man on a mission.
When the Grey’s Anatomy star isn’t otherwise occupied saving lives, both on TV and in real life, he’s also doing what he can to help fight cancer.
Sigh… no wonder they call him McDreamy!
Dempsey called into Mornings with Carson Daly today to chat about his exciting Grey’s Anatomy news and the AMGEN Tour of California bike race.
Just yesterday, news broke that Dempsey, along with his co-stars Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, and Justin Chambers, all recently re-newed their contracts to return for two more seasons. Carson asked Dempsey how he feels about the new deal:
“It’s just so nice to have a job and it continues on as a wonderful thing, so, very grateful that it’s happening. You know, very happy to have all the negotiations done and to move forward and looking forward to another couple of years of the show.”
This means Dr. Derek Shepherd will be gracing our television screens through the tenth season and when asked if the series will end after that, Dempsey had this to say:
“I would imagine, I think so. We’ll see how we feel at the end of two years, but that’s been a long run…It’s been incredible and hopefully with this next two years we can infuse some new life into the show and I know there are a lot of interesting things coming up on the last two episodes that I think will be quite moving for people.”
