Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) may never quit the ABC primetime powerhouse. She has been on the show for 15 seasons and still going strong. ABC said that if she decided to walk away, they would end the show. Knowing that Pompeo has decided not to walk away. Does that mean she never will? The actress shares her thoughts to TV Line.
Grey’s Anatomy – Great Place To Work
Pompeo said that ABC is a great place to work. She added that finding a new project is appealing to her, but she isn’t interested in traveling with three children and living in a hotel. With Grey’s, she goes to work and come home every day. Plus, she added that the network keeps giving her more incentives to stay, including adding childcare into her contract.

Realizes That Her Departure Would Affect Many
