Grey's Anatomy kills off major cast


On Thursday's episode of 'Grey's Anatomy', Shonda Rhimes killed off one of the show's lead and original character, Derek Shepard (Patrick Dempsey).

While some fans have accepted the exit of McDreamy, others are set to bring him back via a petition launched on Change.org.

Following his exit, Courtney Williams launched a petition on Change.org “It’s like you’ve killed the President of Grey’s Anatomy!” he wrote. “YOU HAVE TO BRING DEREK BACK! NOW! IMMEDIATELY!”

According to William, Shonda can turn Thursday's episode into a dream or hallucination. “You do NOT get to toy with our lives and emotions like this Shonda, NO! That is NOT RIGHT! How do you sleep at night?!?!!, "  - He wrote.

In an interview with EW, Derek says he understands the anger and disappointment of fans.

“I think any time an original cast member has left, there’s always a void that will never be filled.”

“Shepherd is a beloved character. People don’t want to lose him. He’s been in their lives for over 10 years. But it goes on, and it will evolve.”

Over  4,268 have signed the petition.
