Jesse Williams, 41, who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on “Grey’s Anatomy” said he supports Ellen Pompeo’s decision, 52, to reduce her role in the 19th season of the ABC series. On August 3, it was announced that the actress who plays lead character Meredith Gray will only appear in 8 of the 20 new episodes.

“That woman has worked so hard all year, every year for 20 years for that franchise,” told E! News Daily Pop. “Whatever time she takes off is well-earned, and I’m sure they have a master plan”, completed Williams.

In fact, ABC has a plan. Season 19 will feature the entry of several new characters, an entire team of young people in their first year of residency, and episodes will be able to focus on new plots.

Ellen Pompeo has revealed several times that she would like to finish ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. This time, the actress only got it because she signed on with the streaming service Hulu to star in an unreleased series, based on the same story that inspired the movie “Orphan” (2009). Williams left the series in Season 17, but returned for a cameo alongside her onscreen love interest, Dr. April Kepner, played by Sarah Drew.
