The recently widowed Mrs. McDreamy is breaking her silence on her late TV husband’s untimely death.

Sure, Grey’s Anatomy’s lead character Meredith Grey has suffered a lot, but the actress is still “honoured and excited” to continue the story of Meredith Grey.

Grey's Anatomy 11x21


45-year-old Ellen Pompeo, who has been playing Meredith on the hit medical drama since the very beginning, took to Twitter on Monday (27th April) to address her on-screen husband, Patrick Dempsey’s, shocking departure from the ABC series on Season 11 episode 21’s “How to Save a Life”.

While fans might not be too happy about Derek Shepherd’s death, Ellen Pompeo came forward to say that she’s excited for what’s next.

She wrote:

Show creator/executive producer Shonda Rhimes also previously issued a statement on Dr. Derek Shepherd’s fatal car wreck after the episode ran, saying:

Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character – for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our “McDreamy”. Patrick Dempsey’s performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example – happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true – of what young women should demand from modern love. His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire Grey’s Anatomy family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: the carousel never stops turning.


Let’s not forget that McDreamy Patrick Dempsey himself also addressed his fans and their thousands of mournful tweets on Friday(24th April) via his Twitter account, saying:

The new 2-hour episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Season 11 episode 22’s “She’s Leaving Home” will focus on how Meredith and the other doctors mourn Shepherd.

Watch the episode’s promo below:

RIP, McDreamy. We’ll miss you 🙁
