Here's hoping McDreamy loves Bridget Jones just as she is.
Patrick Dempsey is in final negotiations to star in the third installment of the beloved Pride and Prejudice-inspired romcom franchise Bridget Jones's Diary, according to Deadline Hollywood.
The casting marks Dempsey's first role since he left Grey's Anatomy last season when his character, neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd, died in a car wreck after saving people from another crash.

Following Tuesday's much anticipated release of Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, author Helen Fielding took some time to chat live with PEOPLE.com readers and reflect on the beloved fictional character she made into a household name.
"I love talking about Bridget and it is very touching that people still care about her after so much time," Fielding, 55, told readers, adding that she never gets tired of talking about her.
Bridget, played by Renée Zellweger in the two film adaptations of the book, is a widowed mom in the third and most recent installment of the series – and fans have expressed outrage that Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth, has been killed off.

In author Helen Fielding's third Bridget Jones novel, Mad About the Boy (out Tuesday, Oct. 15), Bridget is older, a mother of two, a widow (R.I.P. Colin Firth's Mark Darcy) – and none the wiser.
Still obsessed with her weight, alcohol consumption and nicotine habit, she also has new preoccupations: how many Twitter followers she has, and how to get back in the dating game.
In true hapless Bridget fashion, she manages to do just fine in this chapter.

When it was revealed that the third installment of the Bridget Jones series would bring about the death of fan favorite Mark Darcy, fans were horrified.
But how did Colin Firth, 53, who plays the uptight but lovable lawyer in the film adaptations of Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, take the news?
"I did want to tell Colin in person but we were trying to have lunch, and I couldn't really tell him why I was trying to meet him, and he was in a different place," the books' author, Helen Fielding, tells Time magazine.
