Grey's Anatomy season 15 might get a little scary for Miranda Bailey and Ben Warren, but will we have to worry about Bailey leaving anytime soon? Here's what actress Chandra Wilson has to say.

Will Miranda Bailey Leave Grey's Anatomy Before Its Series Finale?

You never really know who's safe on Grey's Anatomy. Unless you're Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), of course. With 14 extraordinary seasons and a 15th airing now, we're left wondering when the series will end. But with that, we know that we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite characters. Will Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) be one of them? Will Bailey leave Grey's Anatomy before the series ends?

Earlier this year, we had a scare when Wilson was cast in E.R. While it was just a guest starring role, we know things have been (and will continue to be) difficult with her husband, Ben Warren (Jason George), who has been a series regular on the Grey's spinoff, Station 19, since last season. Could Bailey be making the jump, too? We can't imagine Grey's without our favorite Chief Bailey, who remains one of four original characters still on the flagship series.

So, will Bailey leave Grey's Anatomy? anytime before the series ends? Here's what Wilson had to say.

You're in luck.

Truly, you should count your lucky stars. Because it looks like we're going to have Miranda Bailey at least until the end of the series, whenever that may be.

In an interview with Bustle, Wilson explained why she has stayed on Grey's Anatomy for so long and something tells us that she is in it until the end.

"I enjoy being a part of this history. I enjoy being a part of a story, of starting a thing from scratch and seeing it through till the end," Wilson said. "Because then after that, whatever the next opportunity is, that'll be there. It's not going anywhere. So I would really like to ride my Bailey ride, and tell her story, and then be able to point to that and say, look, I started it and I finished it."

Are you screaming? Because we are, too.

It looks like we're going to be with Bailey until the end. At least, as long as it's up to Wilson.

But as to when Grey's Anatomy will put up its scrubs, that has yet to be determined.

Though, like every year past season 8, we're getting ready.
