In the interview, Pompeo said she thinks Grey’s Anatomy is nearing its end and she’s looking for a change:
I’m clearly not prepared right now to make any formal announcement about what my future is on the show, but I am really feeling like we have told the majority of the stories that we can tell. It’s about time that I mix it up. I’m definitely looking for a change.”
