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.

Sometimes life imitates art, or something like that.

Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey channeled his inner Dr. McDreamy this week when he helped rescue a teenager who careened off the road and overturned his car completely near the actor's property in Malibu, Calif.

The car had rolled repeatedly and was totaled.

Dempsey reportedly ran toward the car with crowbar in hand so he could pry the driver out of the wrecked Mustang, and was successful.

A neighbor called 911 and the police came, with paramedics treating the crash victim for a concussion, and stunningly nothing worse.

Patrick, of course, never mentioned any of this. No word who the kid who crashed is, but Shawn Ryan, the creator of The Shield, tweeted:

"True Story: Grey's Anatomy actor Patrick Dempsey pulled my friend's son out of an overturned car after bad accident on Tuesday. #GoodDude"

Thank about an #understatement.

Jim Carrey vs. Patrick Dempsey. Not a style showdown you were probably expecting in THG's Fashion Face-Off series, but a fun one just the same!

Carrey's still an all-time movie star, yet has been absent from the spotlight (relatively speaking) in recent years. The Grey's Anatomy cast member, meanwhile, has seen a resurgence in his career over the past half-decade.

Both gents dressed down for the MTV Movie Awards. No ties required. Who do you think was the best dressed Sunday? Tell us by casting a vote:

Get ready to say your McByes, Grey's Anatomy fans.

Patrick Dempsey, who has been with the ABC series since its premiere and who has seen his career resurrected as the result of playing Dr. Derek Sheperd, has made it official: the 2011-2012 season will be his last.

"I do not know what’s going to happen to the other characters, but for me it’s done," the actor says in Italian Vanity Fair, saying the decision is “bittersweet because it’s been great and a great part of my life. But I can’t see me doing it anymore.”

Dempsey's rep tells E! News his client "was referring to the fact that his contract is up at the end of next season and we have no idea what the future holds," but rumors have ran rampant that both Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo will make season eight their last.

That actress' deal is also up next spring.

Can Grey's Anatomy go on without its two leads? Most likely. Creator Shonda Rhimes has made it clear she's open to continuing without Meredith and Derek and, hey, there's even another Grey on board in the former of Chyler Leigh's Lexie.

But would you watch the show without MerDer? That's the question, viewers. Answer it now:

People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive honor is quite coveted.

Fans and gossip sites like THG debate who it should go, but while debates can be heated, but most of us happily salute the winner, whomever it might be.

Most of us. Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey was none too pleased when he learned that Ryan Reynolds earned the title over him this year ...

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!

Ghost Whisperer star Jennifer Love Hewitt and Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey were recently voted the sexiest stars on TV by TV Guide.

Hard to argue with that logic. The respective hotties will appear on two alternative covers of the TV magazine's "Sexiest Stars" issue.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Pregnant?

In honor of the (well-deserved, sexy) honors earned by Jennifer Love Hewitt and Patrick Dempsey, here is a very sexy photo of each. Enjoy ...

J. Love and Patrick Dempsey: The sexiest stars on TV.

All we have to say about these pics is that McDreamy is living up to his McNickname, and man, all those ghosts Jennifer Love Hewitt whispers to on the CBS TV show she apparently stars on are pretty damn lucky.

McDreamy is no McSteamy, Patrick Dempsey admits.

"I'm not Eric Dane â€" McSteamy is in perfect shape" the Grey's Anatomy star tells the new issue of Parade Magazine. "I definitely have pec envy."

"There's a lot of pressure being a man in this town."

He says his wife of eight years, Jillian, keeps him grounded.

"She always says in the morning, ‘They should see you now!'" jokes Dempsey, who adds that fame "gets very heady ... you've got to be very careful.

"I think I've been managing that well. This is a great opportunity now to really define the next part of my life. I just want to do it right."

Defining the life of Patrick Dempsey these days at home? His daughter Tallulah, 6, and his one-year-old twins, Darby and Sullivan.

"It's like a slapstick routine watching these drunk little men run around because they're so wobbly," he says. "When you see something happen that they couldn't do the day before, it's really heartwarming."

As for what happens tonight with Meredith and Derek? That you'll have to wait and see, although Dempsey says he's "excited" for the couple to finally move forward and grow together.

Patrick and the rest of the Grey's Anatomy cast return at 9 p.m. on ABC. How well do you know the hit medical drama? Follow this link for an exclusive Grey's Anatomy quiz!

Just call him Dr. McDreamy ... on Grey's Anatomy and in real life!

Patrick Dempsey unveiled a cancer center in his name at the Central Maine Medical Center in his hometown of Lewiston, Maine, on Monday.

The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing, which opens March 31, will offer education and support for cancer patients and their families.

The handsome Grey's Anatomy star, 42, says he was inspired after his mother successfully overcame ovarian cancer at the hospital.

"For a family to get a cancer diagnosis is devastating, and all the information out there can be overwhelming," Patrick Dempsey said.

"A lot of the Web sites I went to just didn't have enough information."

Patrick provided a seed grant for the center, will also take part in the center's public education campaign about cancer prevention and detection.

His sister, Mary, a hospital employee, will run the center.

Dempsey has been married to his wife, Jillian Dempsey, for eight years. They have twins, Darby and Sullivan, 1, and a daughter, Tallulah, 6.

With all the scandal we write about on The Hollywood Gossip, it's always nice to see that some celebrities are grounded and giving back to their community.
