In another interview, Wilson said that the avid viewers should not expect season 17 to be the last of "Grey's Anatomy," regardless of the show's long-lasting run on television, according to PEOPLE.

"There have been many 'This is how the season would end' conversations and then they all end up [not happening] because of a myriad of reasons," she recently told Entertainment Tonight.

The star also pointed out that the team of "Grey's Anatomy" feels that closing the show with the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic would not be ending on a happy note.

After 11 seasons in 2015, Dempsey, whose character is a neurosurgeon, decided to leave "Grey's Anatomy." His character died because doctors failed to do a CT scan after he was in a car accident.

It was the first episode Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the series, had written since the season 8 finale. Rhimes enlisted screenwriter Krista Vernoff to take over as showrunner when she left ABC in 2017.
