Which Other Grey’s Anatomy Original NEEDS to Stay on the Show?

Yesterday Grey's Anatomy fans were treated to some fantastic news: stars Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) and Patrick Dempsey (Derek) have signed onto the show for two more years. We breathed a sigh of relief after hearing that, because Sandra Oh (Cristina) leaving at the end of the year has us on edge. That said, there are still plenty of actors whose fates after Season 10 are in question.

Original cast members Justin Chambers (Alex), Chandra Wilson (Bailey), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard) all have contracts ending at the end of the season, as does Sara Ramirez (Callie). So far, we haven't heard news one way or the other for these actors.

In a perfect world, all four will remain on the show — it's hard to imagine Grey Sloan Memorial without any of them — but right now we're wondering which actor you most hope signs on for more seasons.

Personally, our number one from that group is Sara Ramirez, because there's so much left to do with Callie's story. Her relationship with Arizona is still on the rocks, and we'd hate to see that plot resolved hastily because Sara decided to leave.

That said, we also want to see Bailey regain her confidence, and Alex still has a lot of growing to do. In many ways, Richard leaving would make the most sense, since retirement is definitely not out of the question at this point, but if he went, part of the show's heart would go with him.

Enough about our opinions. Let us know what you think by voting in our poll and sharing your thoughts in the comments below!

Some of them could leave...

They ALL needs to stay.
