Speaking to ET about the theories that Grey's Anatomy is ending soon, Ellen let slip: "They're not far off. I mean, I've been trying to get away for years. I have been trying. It's not because I haven't been trying. I have strong relationships at the network and they have been very, very good to me, and have incentivized me to stay."

When pushed further and asked specifically when Grey's Anatomy will end, Ellen added: "I'm not really supposed to say anything about it. I don't want to be disrespectful to people I've promised things to." In other words, while there are no official dates just yet, it looks like our favourite medical drama's days are numbered.
