There's been nonstop rumors surrounding the fate of the show, and now "Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey is opening up about what's to come on this season and what could lie ahead for the ABC hit.

While on the set, "Entertainment Tonight" caught up with Patrick - who says fans can expect Derek and Meredith's relationship to definitely hit a rough patch - but he thinks they pair will make it, just not down the aisle as some reports have claimed.

“There’s a lot of conflict but it’s good. It was fun this year. It’s nice to see where the characters are going and it’s all about the baby for Derek and Meredith," he revealed to OK! magazine.

As for worries that this season may be "Grey's" last, Dempsey told, "I don’t know! No one has talked about it from ABC...So we’ll see, I think it’s yet to be determined for everybody and for the network to see what’s working and what isn’t.”
