As "Grey's Anatomy" begins season 10, creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes is setting a clear message to the original cast-leave if you want, but tell me ahead of time.

ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee has voiced the fact that the medical drama could outlive its remaining original cast members, which include Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, Sandra Oh, and James Pickens Jr.
"Shonda is an extraordinary creative force," says Lee on the possible creative struggles should "Grey's Anatomy" season 10 see the outing of all its veteran cast members that fans have come to love.
"If I commented on who was coming in and out, I think Shonda would yell at me."
And like Paul Lee, Shonda Rhimes is confident "Grey's Anatomy" can survive any cast outing in season 10.
"What's nice is I've been through this before because we had to try to prepare for it at the end of Season 8. Having been through it before, I have a different attitude about it," says Rhimes according to TV Guide.
"I've asked very clearly that I'd like to know things sooner rather than later so that I can plan. Every last one of the originals that we have left is very special to me, and if we're going to have anybody exit, I really wanted the time to plan and write and execute really fitting and beautiful ends for those characters."
So, it seems that despite many character being on the brink of exiting for "Grey's Anatomy," season 10 will have more of a lead-in and fans should see early signs should any cast member decide to leave.
