PDempsey092108_01_X17200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Patrick Dempsey has confirmed this eighth season of Grey's Anatomy will be his final.

In an interview with Italian Vanity Fair, the actor tells the magazine:

    "It's gonna be my last," he said. "I do not know what's going to happen to the other characters, but for me it's done."

McDreamy's departure isn't much of a shocker. Dempsey has hinted his stint on the show was coming -- and has also been expanding his film career lately.

He has most recently starred in Enchanted, Valentine's Day and will be seen in the summer blockbuster Transformers: Dark of the Moon next month.
