On Thursday, Deadline that Grey's Anatomy producers would not be renewing contracts for Sarah Drew (Dr. April) or Jessica Capshaw (Dr. Arizona Robbins), making the current 14th season their last.
This is how the rest of the cast responded to the news.
Jesse Williams (Jackson)
Ellen Pompeo (Meredith)
The Deadline article included the following: "The decision not to bring back Capshaw and Drew comes on the heels of the blockbuster new Pompeo pact that gave her a significant salary increase, paying her as much as $20 million a year, including signing bonus, producing fees, ownership in the show and other extras."
The detail seemingly implied, at least to Pompeo, that because she recently got more money for her work on the show, Drew and Capshaw had to be let go.
Understandably, Pompeo wasn't having it.
