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.

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:

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.

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!

The cast of Grey's Anatomy may need some-real life doctors on the set.

According to sources, stars Isaiah Washington (pictured) and Patrick Dempsey recently were involved in a violent brawl. With each other.

The ever-reliable National Enquirer first broke the story, but other sources have confirmed it. They report that a long-simmering feud boiled over on Monday when Washington and Dempsey started arguing over cast members being late for a scene.

It's no Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, but here's the play-by-play:

"What are we waiting on?" said Isaiah.

"Not me," said Patrick. "I'm always ready."

"At that point," said the source, "Isaiah said something mean to T.R. Knight" (who plays mild-mannered Dr. George O'Malley).

"That's when Patrick told Isaiah, 'Pick on somebody your own size.' Well, that did it. Isaiah became enraged and grabbed Patrick by the throat and shoved him back a few feet."

Jeepers. Rumors have been swirling that Washington, an experienced stage actor, hasn't been pleased with the attention Dempsey has received as the face of the hit ABC show.

But there are better ways to handle things, Isaiah. Take a lesson from Jessica Biel and stretch out that anger. Take a deep breath.

And then follow the always inspirational lead of Nicole Richie and make up with your friend/co-star.

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:
