Dr. Jackson Avery is sticking around Grey-Sloan Memorial.
His portrayer Jesse Williams has signed a new two-year deal on hit medical drama, Grey’s Anatomy.
Per Deadline, Williams was the only series regular whose contract has not been extended for seasons 16 and 17 after lead actress Ellen Pompeo and other original cast members closed new deals with the network. The new contract negotiation between Williams and ABC involved a pay raise and his availability.
Williams made his Grey’s debut in season 6 as a recurring and was upped to a series regular the following season.
Grey’s Anatomy returns in the fall on ABC.
