Patrick Dempsey speelt al elf seizoenen lang Dr Derek Shepherd (McDreamy) in Grey’s Anatomy. Nu blijkt dat hij de serie zal verlaten. Dempsey’s personage werd aangereden tijdens een auto-ongeluk, waardoor zijn vrouw Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) de beslissing moet nemen om hem wel of niet in leven te houden. Showrunner Shonda Rhimes schrijft zelf de aflevering How to save a life, waarin Derek dood zou gaan.

Rhimes zei: “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.”
