Everyone’s back. Days after star Ellen Pompeo closed a new deal to return to Grey’s Anatomy for the upcoming thirteenth season, the other four cast members who had been negotiating new contracts also have signed new deals. That includes Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens, Jr. and Kevin McKidd.
There were a total of six Grey’s Anatomy regulars whose contracts were up at the end of Season 12. Of them one, Sara Ramirez opted to depart, while the rest had been expected to come back.
Among Chambers, Wilson, Pickens, Jr. and McKidd, Chambers, Wilson and Pickens Jr. are original cast members, while McKidd joined as a regular in Season 5.
Shonda Rhimes’ Grey’s Anatomy is coming off one of its strongest seasons creatively and ratings-wise. In its recently concluded 12th season, Grey’s Anatomy was ABC’s highest-rated show in key demographics and ranked among television’s top five dramas.
Chambers is repped by Gersh and Anonymous Content. Wilson is with Abrams Artists and Station 3. Pickens Jr. is with Stone Manners Salners and Wright Entertainment. McKidd is with WME.
