She may have signed on for two more seasons of Grey's Anatomy — the upcoming Season 11 and the all-but-official Season 12 — but will Chandra Wilson hang up her stethoscope after that? Are we savoring the last stories of Miranda Bailey?


It doesn't sound like it, according to an interview the 44-year-old actress just gave CocoaFab.

"Miranda never gets old to me," Chandra tells the site. "There's always something new I'm being made to discover about her. Her journey isn't finished yet, and there's still stuff for her to do."

Plus, Chandra is aware of Bailey's legacy — and that of all the characters.

"Slowly but surely, seeing Miranda Bailey on the show every week on a major network has been influential for the people that watch," she explains. "There are folks in college now who were watching as kids who are in medical school because they watched her on Grey's Anatomy. We have become a generational show. The look of the show… is the accepted look of America."

According to this Houston native, the show's success is largely due to its relatability. "Here you have a hit television show with a multi-ethnic cast that you were comfortable with. I think people figured out they were comfortable because it looked like their every day. It looked like it looks when you go to the grocery store or to the doctor's office. It looked real."

Well said! Now here's to many more seasons of real-ness.

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 premieres Thursday, September 25, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
