Two popular, long-time Grey’s Anatomy cast members, Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew, will be departing the hit ABC medical drama at the end of the current fourteenth season. Capshaw has been on the show for 10 seasons, nine of them as a series regular, playing Dr. Arizona Robbins; Drew has been on Grey’s for nine seasons, eight of them as a series regular, playing Dr. April Kepner.

 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.

 

Im devastated! Not Arizona :emofish:

But Ellen deserved that pay raise. Maybe they should cut payment some of the irrelevant male characters in the series

I agree,,, she is incredible and deserves it but hell get rid of those interns that have showed up this season lol if they trying to conservatively spend money. I guess this shuts down my hope that Kim Raver will return as series regular. (She still has that multi episodic arc coming up this season though :cool:)

No :weeps: Those are two of my favourites. I started watching it in season 6 when they had both just joined, it won't be the same without them. I was still holding out hope Callie would come back and reunite with Arizona :weeps: I hope Arizona leaves to be with her

I kind of saw April’s coming... Arizona’s has me absolutely stunned. 

 

I hate the narrative they’re trying to spin with Ellen’s raise - she doesn’t decide who gets paid what. The fault is on ABC being cheapskates.

all the show needs is Grey so.

 

I think that makes it just owen and Jackson who joined last decade who are still regulars.

omg Ellen clocked deadline. It is poor taste though ABC decided to announce the departures today of all days... and it's unfortunate the producers don't see a future for Arizona/April on the show. Especially Arizona.

it's kinda sad that bad characters are staying and good are leaving.

 

 april's and arizona's storyline was really bad so they leaving is kinda understood but it's writers fault that they were so bad written.

 

i would prefer to Owen and Amelia leave to somewhere and april and arizona stay - but with a good storyline.

 

I hope they will do good farawell to both characters like Callie coming, and taking back Arizona and maybe april coming to Cristina to work with here?

they delete two characters with no storyline. Jo has storyline with Alex so they would have to remove alex too

Yeah I don't watch but Grey's is still one of the higher rated Tv shows of the whole week. hard to believe they couldn't afford it.

Not April and Arizona. They were done so wrong. They are probably gonna put some of the current interns on regular contracts next season because their pay is not as high :skull:
