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.

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.

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.
