When it comes to Greys Anatomyseason 19 and Scott Speedman, there's some good news and bad news to report.
It's undoubtedly true that no word has been given on how the Pompeos character will leave the program, but we can't help but imagine her being around Seattle but off-screen for a significant chunk of the season.
Following the events of the season 18 finale, the aforementioned website confirmed several returning regulars beyond Pompeo. They include Chandra Wilson (Bailey), James Pickens, Jr. (Richard), Kelly McCreary (Maggie), Caterina Scorsone (Amelia), Chris Carmack (Link), and Jake Borelli (Levi).
Remember that all of these returning performers are part of a new generation of surgical residents, as the hospital prepares to rebuild following the program's closure.
