Over the years, Grey's Anatomy has featured a main character being run over by a bus.

Also: a giant storm, a hospital shooting and a plane crash, among many other large-scale tragedies.

In other words: this long-running ABC drama isn't known for its humor.

But Ellen Pompeo - who may quit acting when the show's run is complete - is perhaps seeking to change that impression, at least based on the following hilarious set photo the actress posted to her WhoSay account.

"Blue is the new black #8daystillgreys #greysanatomy," Pompeo Tweeted in anticipation of the Grey's Anatomy Season 11 opener, which airs on Thursday, September 25 at 8/7c.

Ellen Pompeo may soon be checking out of Grey's Anatomy.

And acting altogether.

In a discussion with Buzzfeed last night, the veteran actress - who is signed through Grey's Anatomy Season 11 and Grey's Anatomy Season 12 - made it clear that being in front of the camera is no longer a passion.

“I definitely don’t have a strong desire to act after Grey’s. I definitely feel myself transitioning. I don’t find acting terribly empowering,” Pompeo said during a BuzzFeed Brews Q&A while seated alongside stars Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder).

Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have signed two-year contracts to stay with ABC's Grey's Anatomy through the spring of 2016, according to reports.

The actors who have played Dr. Meredith Grey and Dr. Derek Shepherd since the show's debut in 2005 will keep the actors on the show through Season 12.

ABC has yet to officially pick up the medical drama beyond Grey's Anatomy Season 10, but it seemed more than likely before this and even more so now.

Fellow Grey's original Sandra Oh won't be joining them, however. The perennial Emmy contender announced in August that this spring is her swan song.

Six originals in all - Oh, Dempsey, Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr. - came into the current season with expiring contracts.

The future for the others is unclear, but with Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, plus a bunch of newcomers on board, the show will go on ... for awhile it appears.

Grey's Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo wasn't a fan of this year's Emmy Awards.

A big reason for that? The telecast's lack of diversity, according to the star.

Ellen and Chris Pic

"I didn't see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me," she said, adding specifically that "The dance number was embarrassing."

Did you see one person of color in that dance number?"

Grey's Anatomy is one of the more diverse shows on TV, which Pompeo, who is also in a biracial marriage (to Chris Ivery) says is one of her favorite things about it.

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo was among the People's Choice Awards winners Wednesday night. For Favorite Dramatic TV Actress, not Favorite Crotch Shot.

She might as well have won the latter, though. When she walked up to accept the honor, she held up her dress, spread her legs and flashed her crotch for all to see.

Grey's Anatomy? More like Pink's Anatomy! Or something. Sorry.

If Grey's Anatomy has any fans left, tonight's two-hour fourth season finale is supposedly the night you've been waiting for!

Just kidding. The show still draws millions of loyal viewers. Yet it's been a long time since something interesting happened on it.

Patrick Dempsey Style

Well, that supposedly changes tonight. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are going to be getting together for good.

We know this because the show's own creator and producer, Shonda Rhimes, has already said so publicly. We don't get it either.

Anyway, here's a photo from tonight's show. Meredith is holding what looks like champagne, ready to celebrate ... something.

More than three years later, will a terrific episode finally bring Meredith and Derek together - or will the hit medical drama jump the shark for good?

Also, Alex and Izzie may or may not get together, and there's another love triangle involving possible girl-on-girl action. Gotta love Grey's Anatomy!

He may not have brought his daughter with him, but that didn't make Patrick Demspey look any less (Mc)dreamy at the launch party for Grey's Anatomy Season Two on DVD this week:

Of course, what would a Grey's Anatomy party be without the title character? Ellen Pompeo also showed up, although she wouldn't dish on whether Meredith and the beloved Dr. Sheperd finally give in to love and tempation when season three stars in two weeks.

Ever wonder how Ellen Pompeo maintains her exquisite... well, rail-thin figure? The Defamer and its operatives say they've got her secret figured out -- the ever-popular Big Fat Plate of Nothing Diet.

Here's the blow-by-blow account of a trip to a Los Angeles diner on Friday night by the leading lady of Grey's Anatomy, according to the site:

9:15 PM: Sitting at Lucky Devils on Hollywood and Cherokee. Ellen Pompeo just walked in. She looks pretty hot. I will tell you what she orders as it happens.

9:27 PM: So far just a milkshake that she's sharing with her boyfriend. And by sharing, I mean letting him have it all.

9:46 PM: It's the Hollywood actress moment I was waiting for. The three people with Pompeo at her table have all ordered cheeseburgers. Pompeo has ordered a big fat plate of nothing. That's right, there are three plates at the table, none of which are in front of Ellen. She's just sitting there watching her friends eat. And that's how you get cast on TV's number one show, boys and girls.

Are we jumping to conclusions? Is it unfair to suggest that Ellen has an eating disorder simply because of this one incident? Yes and yes. But come on, it's still pretty amusing. We're just wondering if boyfriend Chris Ivery was there.

Sources report that Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo did not appear in any interviews with her fellow cast members during a visit to the Monte Carlo Television Festival. Pompeo's representative, Jennifer Allen, said it was at the request of the broadcasters that she be interviewed separately, but tabloids speculate that Ellen may have what is known as Diva-itis, if you know what we're saying. We're saying she's a diva!

The actress also had a fight with boyfriend, Chris Ivery, at one point getting out of a car and running down the street, shouting to the driver that Ivery is "not her husband" when told by the driver to get back in the car with her husband.

We're guessing that previous reports of Pompeo's reluctance to marry the ex-felon and current music producer may have some weight to them.
