LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: If you’re still in mourning about not being able to see television’s golden couple anymore, Dr Meredith Grey and Dr Derek Shepherd of Grey's Anatomy, fear not — your prayers may just be answered! Reports state that the side-lined stars of the once iconic medical drama, Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey are planning on coming back together to be part of a new show!

You read that right — Radar Online reports that the stars want to come up with an eyeball-grabbing, TV-rating-conquering show that will make the creators of Grey’s Anatomy realize what they’re missing. This goal comes from feeling bad about being phased out from a show that once solely belonged to them. Pompeo played the iconic Dr Grey for 18 seasons, while Dempsey stepped away after his character was killed off in 2015.

"They're both bitter about being phased out of the show,” a source has reportedly said. This decision to come together and take the TV world by storm once more may have also stemmed from Dempsey’s apparent sadness over the accusations levied against him by 'Grey’s Anatomy' producer James D Parriott. He’d said that the actor ‘terrorized’ people on the set and was involved in numerous scuffles with show creator Shonda Rhimes.

He is reportedly very thankful to Pompeo, who has steadfastly stood by him. "Patrick says Ellen was one of the only ones who had his back — and he'd love to work with her again, particularly in a new show that would stick it to their old colleagues and kick their butts in ratings," the insider spilled. "Ellen's totally up for it once she's done milking Grey's dry.”

The pair who are beloved by the show watchers despite the fact that they haven’t been seen together on the screen in a while, had also talked about a possible reunion at the Disney Fan Event in September. Pompeo was asked about whether or not she’s team up with Dempsey again, to which the actress had said, "We've done some of our greatest work together. Both of us are very proud of the work we did. We had a great time doing it, and we created something really iconic." She continued, "I think the fans would absolutely love it." Dempsey had also shared similar thoughts about a reunion with Pompeo, “I'd love to work with her again. It's always been a really special relationship Ellen and I have had together in front of the screen and behind it as well."
