As Grey's Anatomy prepares to enter his 19th season, premiering Oct. 6 on ABC, the beloved medical drama is getting a bit of a facelift. 

Not only are a crop of new cast members joining the show, Ellen Pompeo, who has played Meredith Grey since the show's inception in 2005.

Grey's Anatomy without Meredith Grey?! Somebody sedate us!

Grey's cast insists that even if Meredith might not be around as much—it's not time to impale yourself with an icicle.

"As far as our story tones are concerned, we still have that Meredith voice there, that Meredith presence," Chandra Wilson told. 

"The thing we've learned over the seasons is that Grey's maintains its feel no matter who is there, no matter which characters are there. "

James Pickens Jr., who plays Richard Webber, agreed in saying, "She will hover over the show as long as the show is in existence."

Phew, we don't need to cue up "Chasing Cars" just yet.

If Meredith does eventually leave for good, it's hard to imagine she'll ever really leave Grey Sloan behind forever.
