How Ellen Pompeo Wants Grey’s Anatomy To Change The Way It Tackles Social Issues


Ellen Pompeo may be taking a smaller role in Grey’s Anatomy’s 19th season when it comes to her role as Meredith Grey, but she is still an executive producer on the series who has shown that she cares about the stories they tell. To that end, the hit ABC medical drama has tackled a number of social issues, including sexual assault, racism, addiction, and the COVID pandemic, to name just some. As important as Pompeo knows that is, she spoke about the change she’d like to see when handling such touchy topics in future seasons of Grey’s Anatomy

The Meredith Grey actress spoke on her podcast Tell Me (opens in new tab) about how Grey’s Anatomy has handled certain episodes in the series’ first 18 seasons. She acknowledged that they’ve been able to cover a lot of important topics and continue to talk about what’s next. In speaking on what she’d like to see in the future, rather than picking a specific issue, Ellen Pompeo said she’d like to change how those issues are presented. She said:

I think if I had any desire [to address any issues], honestly, it would be to be less, sort of, preachy in one episode about certain things. It’s like we do one episode about, let’s see, Asian hate crimes is one we did this past season that was really moving. I think I’d like to see things happen a little more subtly and over time. You know, consistently and less ‘hit you over the head with it for just one hour and then we never talk about it again.’ I wish we could sort of touch on these social issues that are important and relevant and sort of have them be threads throughout.
