It is impossible to envision Grey's Anatomy without Pompeo after 19 seasons, as she has been the show's central character. After all, her character's name is in the series' title.
However, Pompeo's character will not be completely eliminated from the series, and the actor has already hinted that she may resurface in future episodes of Grey's Anatomy if the drama continues. Meredith is anticipated to continue serving as the show's narrator throughout the balance of season 19. Although her physical presence on Grey's Anatomy will be drastically reduced, Pompeo will continue to play a substantial role as an executive producer.
