Sandra Oh, who has been with the series since the star, will also depart this season, but Grey's stars Patrick Dempsy and Ellen Pompeo signed new contracts for seasons 11 and 12 in January. However, "this doesn't mean Grey's has been renewed, but it is likely to go at least one more season," a source told E! News in January.

"I see the show going as long as I continue to be interested in the show," series creator Shonda Rhimes told E! News when Oh's departure was announced. "And then I don't know about the network, because they might see it going after me. But as I see it, as long as I'm interested and have stories to tell, I'm excited about being there."

However, ABC's Paul Lee told reporters at TCA that Grey's had many years left in it.

"[Executive producer] Shonda Rhimes is one of the greatest writers that our generation has seen. She's continuing to write an immensely powerful show. It makes you laugh and cry every week, and what season are we now? And by the way, to her enormous credit, it is completely different than Scandal. And I love it. I think it's going to stay on the network for many years to come," Lee told reporters about Grey's Anatomy at TCA.

Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays, 9 p.m. on ABC.
