Grey’s Anatomy’ is currently one of the longest-running television shows out there, with its 17th season still going strong. The show made its debut in 2005 and was a smash hit with fans and critics alike. It remains ABC’s most popular drama.
Throughout its duration, the show has featured several characters being killed off or actors leaving the show. It was reported earlier that fan-favorite Jesse Williams confirmed that he will be leaving the show and that happened on the latest episode of the show. On top of that, even Greg Germann left the show as a series regular.
Jesse Williams portrayed Jackson Avery and became an instant hit with fans. His final scene saw Avery leave Seattle for a new job in Boston. Since then fans have been wondering if it is truly the end of Jackson Avery.
While speaking to TVLine, Jesse Williams discussed the possibility of a spin-off based on his character’s new life in Boston. Jesse Williams revealed that he is definitely interested in a spin-off but at this moment there is no guarantee it will happen in the first place.
We’ll see. I’m not entirely sure. There is certainly a part of me that is compelled to go out into the wilderness as well [as Jackson] and do something different and new, so I’m very excited to do that. That said, I’m really proud of the work and the character I’ve created here in this world, and I get [fans’ interest]. That would be a damn interesting and meaty spinoff with incredibly talented actors in a world that I don’t see reflected in television as far as equity in medicine and the actual role that the medical community plays in impacting our livelihoods, so there is something there. I don’t begrudge it. So we’ll see. We’ll see.
We will have to see what is next in store for Williams after his exit from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and whether the spin-off will become a reality one day.
