Grey's Anatomy: Despite not airing a new episode, fans were talking about Grey's Anatomy last week - and for good reason. After nineteen seasons on the show and seemingly spending about fifteen of them eluding to an exit in the near future, Ellen Pompeo finally announced that was was, officially, hanging up her scrubs and exiting the series named for her iconic character. It's not a decision that came without warning: Pompeo had already drastically cut back her screen time recently, appearing in just eight episodes in the current season. While the news of Meredith Grey leaving  is likely upsetting for fans, they do have something to celebrate: this makes a renewal even more likely than it already was. If ABC wasn't planning to continue the show without Pompeo, which was the only potential hangup to a renewal to begin with, it would have certainly been announced that the show was ending rather than having Pompeo simply announce her exit. While I never doubted Grey's would make it to a milestone twentieth season, to me, this all but confirms it. Grey's Anatomy is a CERTAIN RENEWAL.

What do you think of my predictions? What are your predictions? Let me know in the comments and vote in the poll of the week!
