Ellen Pompeo sent an emotional message to “Grey’s Anatomy” fans on Thursday as she prepares for her final episodes on the hit ABC series.

“I am eternally grateful and humbled by the love and support you have all shown me, Meredith GREY and the show for 19 seasons!,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a selfie. “Through it all….none of it …would have been possible without the best fans in the world.”

Pompeo, who announced her departure from the show over the summer, went on to say the ride-or-die fanbase made her experience “so fun and ICONIC.”

“I love you madly and appreciate you right back. This isn’t your first time on the rollercoaster… you know the show must go on and I’ll definitely be back to visit,” the 53-year-old teased.

Pompeo, who has been with the series since its premiere in 2005, was met with praise and gratitude in her comments section from fans of the long-lasting show.

“19 incredible seasons of trailblazing. Looking forward to seeing what’s next for you as you transition. ❤️,” one person commented.

“’Thank you’ doesn’t even come close to being enough, Ellen, but it’s all we have. 🙏🏻🥹😘,” another fan chimed in.

While a third fan told the actress her role on the show “saved” her life, adding, “Mer became the character I so very needed to look up to as she went through so much, while growing as a person myself.”
