Grey's Anatomy: Is Patrick Dempsey Leaving the Show?

Will Patrick Dempsey hang up his scrubs and quit Grey's Anatomy after one more season?

It would seem so, judging by a recent interview he gave to the Italian edition of Vanity Fair, in which the actor, 45, suggested he will leave ABC's hit medical drama.

"It will be my last," he said. "I don't know what will happen with the other characters, but for me, it's done." He adds that the decision is "bittersweet because it's been a great part of my life. But I can't see me doing it anymore."





But wait, not so fast. Dempsey's publicist says those comments were taken out of context, telling EW.com, "He was referring to the fact that his contract is up at the end of next season and we have no idea what the future holds."

Sounds like we might need a third opinion on the future of Dr. McDreamy. Paging Shonda Rhimes!
