Ellen Pompeo Is Back For ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 13 — You Won’t Believe How Much She Makes!


It's official, guys: Ellen Pompeo is coming back for Grey's Anatomy Season 13!

No one really thought the show's star was going to bail without a goodbye, but it's still nice to know her return is a 100 percent done deal.

NEWS: Ellen Pompeo Is Basically Meredith Grey IRL

The 46-year-old's rep confirmed the good news to Deadline. It sounds like her new contract is only for next season (unless some details are just being kept under wraps), though this far into the show we assume that just means she's hedging her bets.

One of the things that probably keeps luring the mom of two back, beyond just loving the show, is her salary. She's one of the highest paid actresses on TV, making a reported $300,000 an episode. Not too shabby if you ask us!

Ellen's not the only cast member whose contract was up this year. As we all know, Sara Ramirez chose to depart the show.
