After almost a decade of starring in hit US drama “Grey’s Anatomy”, actor Patrick Dempsey shocked the world with bowing out.

The last hour of McDreamy’s life in the show was written by its creator Shonda Rhimes.

Unpleasantness has happened when, despite the fact that Dempsey’s departure wasn’t included in an official series trailer, the subscribers of the US magazine Entertainment Weekly got their copies that revealed the breaking news hours before the plot twist aired.
The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes said that Dempsey has always been to the whole filming team a much-loved McDreamy, the husband of Meredith Gray – a fellow doctor and titular character as well.
Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character – for Meredith, for me and for the fans.
I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our ‘McDreamy’
– said Rhimes.
This season Dempsey’s appearance on the screens was far and away less frequently, but his departure became an extremely shocking surprise for many fans, since it was reported that his contract with the show would remain signed till season 12 in 2012.
