Sarah Drew recounts the devastation of Grey's Anatomy dumping her
Drew was on set shadowing Kevin McKidd, who was directing an episode, when she learned the bad news. "A whole bunch of people came into my trailer to give me hugs and cry with me and tell me they were so sad I was leaving," she said. She added that her Emmy nomination for directing Grey's Anatomy: B-Team was "a bolt of good news" because "my confidence had gotten a bit shaken in the wake of being let go and the nomination after the fact made me go, 'I don't need to be worried about anything or have my confidence shaken.'"

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday that Meredith would stay single for the forseeable future.

But as the showrunner, I can confirm for you that Meredith Grey is very much a part of our 'Season of Love.'”

Grey’s Anatomy stands as a testament to the power of an old-fashioned, long-running network series
Source: The A.V. Club
While the current TV trend emphasizes shorter seasons and quality over quantity, Grey's is that rare throwback to past TV series that were able to run for years while maintaining interest among fans. As Caroline Siede explains, "long-running show like Grey’s Anatomy measures its successes and failures in eras, not episodes or even seasons. And while Grey’s Anatomy has had some real low points over the years (yes, this is a medical series where someone had sex with a ghost that turned out to be a manifestation of her brain tumor), it’s had plenty of peaks to counter those valleys. The show’s most recent creative renaissance came thanks to its biggest ever creative shakeup—the decision to kill off Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek 'McDreamy' Shepherd in the 11th season episode 'How To Save A Life.' In examining what Meredith’s life looks like in a post-Derek world, Grey’s Anatomy got a creative kick start (not to mention a ratings boost). And since then it’s been refreshingly willing to mine its own past for emotional resonance, most successfully in seasons 12 and 14."
