Cristina Yang may have one foot out the door, but the rest of 'Grey's Anatomy's core cast doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), Justin Chambers (Alex Karev), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) have all inked new two-year deals that will keep them on board the ABC medical drama until at least the end of a potential Season 12. The quartet joins stars Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) and Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd), who both signed new two-year deals back in January.

Wilson, Chambers, and Pickens — along with Pompeo and Dempsey — will mark the last remaining series regulars who have been with the show since the pilot aired back in 2005. Ramirez joined the show as a recurring player at the end of Season 2 and was later upped to regular for Season 3. However, she's still on the same renegotiation schedule as the others.
Granted, the network has yet to formally renew the series beyond its current tenth season, however, these newly brokered deals pretty much confirm that 'Grey's clearly plans on being around for years to come. Nobody puts Shondaland in a corner.

Meanwhile, Sandra Oh is gearing up to turn in her scrubs in the upcoming season finale. Also exiting Grey Sloan Memorial are second-year cast members Gaius Charles (Shane Ross) and Tessa Ferrer (Leah Murphy), who boarded the show as recurring players and were promoted to series regulars ahead of Season 10.
News of a confirmed Season 11 is expected to happen sometime next week. In the meantime, 'Grey's Anatomy' airs on Thursdays at 9/8c on ABC.
