Fans of the actor can look forward to her upcoming Hulu project, as well as her potential return to “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Ellen Pompeo’s character Meredith Grey may have said goodbye to “Grey’s Anatomy” in the Feb. 23 episode, but according to executive producer Debbie Allen, this isn’t the last we’ll hear of her. Allen shared with “Entertainment Tonight” that Meredith is “taking a departure” from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, but she is still alive and will be returning to the show. Pompeo will also continue to serve as an executive producer and narrator for the show.
In addition to her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” Pompeo is also taking on a new role in a forthcoming Hulu show. The streamer has green-lit eight episodes centered around a Midwestern family who adopt who they think is an 8-year-old girl with a rare form of dwarfism. However, they soon begin to question her identity, throwing their own relationships into turmoil as they discover that she might not be exactly who she says she is. Pompeo will act in the show and serve as an executive producer alongside Katie Robbins, Erin Levy, and other members of her Calamity Jane production company.
Though this means less screen time for Meredith Grey, Pompeo’s fans can look forward to her upcoming Hulu project, as well as her potential return to “Grey’s Anatomy.”
