McDreamy may have been killed off toward the end of Grey’s Anatomy Season 11.

But now it’s apparently time to make room for McSexy… in the form of Ellen Pompeo!

The actress covers the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, and she does so with a white coat draped over, well… not much at all.

That’s right: Ellen Pompeo is naked! And looking nothing short of amazing at 45 … seriously, who knew?!

Aside from baring (almost) all physically, Pompeo also opens up about the storyline fans can’t keep discussing:

Creator Shonda Rhimes deciding to kill off Patrick Dempsey‘s beloved character, who played Meredith’s husband on screen.

"All of a sudden, Patrick [Dempsey] leaves, and it’s like, Oh my God, ­Meredith’s gonna get killed with Alzheimer’s!

"The show couldn’t possibly go on ­without the man!" said Pompeo, citing some sexism among the negative responses out there. 

Following Derek’s death, the series jumped ahead a full year, with spoilers saying Grey’s Anatomy Season 12 may jump ahead even further.

We’ll find out when Grey’s Anatomy (and fellow Thursday ABC dramas Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder) return on September 24.

We can’t wait!
