Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd) and his sexy scruff just got us even more pumped for the Grey's Anatomy premiere.

The on-screen doc, who we'll get to see back at Seattle Grace-Mercy West in just one month(!), looked hotter than ever during an outing in New York City on August 26. Patrick was spotted rocking a suit and tie (swoon) while posing for pics outside of the Late Show with David Letterman.

But will we get to see McDreamy on Grey's for much longer? In an interview with TVLine, Patrick reveals that for Season 11, "Everything is open to a conversation at this point." He goes on to say, "We’re talking. We’ll see what happens."

While the suspense may drive us nuts, at least Patrick hasn't ruled out future seasons just yet. Sandra Oh (Cristina) on the other hand, will be leaving the show after Season 10. Bring on the waterworks!

Catch the Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 premiere on Thursday, September 26, 2013, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
