Four Grey’s Anatomy faves have inked new contracts that would ensure their return to the series through season 12, EW confirms.

Sara Ramirez, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr.’s new two-year deals come as series regular Sandra Oh prepares to exit the medical drama at the end of the current season. Official word of the show’s 11th season renewal is expected in the coming weeks.

In January, on-screen married duo Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey led the contract renewal charge, scoring two-year deals of their own.

Following Oh’s exit, Pompeo, Dempsey, Chambers, Wilson, and Pickens will be the only cast members who have been with the hit show since its first season.

Grey’s Anatomy‘s season finale airs May 15 on ABC.
