Amidst breakups and contract negotiations, what will happen next with “Grey’s Anatomy” -- on-screen or off -- is anyone’s guess.

And that goes for the actors as much as the fans.

Last week, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams, who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on the medical drama, told E Online! that he never knows what’s happening with the series, as he remarked “I think that by the time I got on the show they learned to stop telling us anything.”

However, Williams gave it his best guess.

“Season eight, I think, is a new beginning. I think it's almost like the beginning of a new series in some ways. We’ve all been through something together, we had some troubles and now it’s time to start fresh and I think you'll see a lot of new relationships and you'll have new characters interacting with new characters.”

The actor gave the interview while attending the Monte Carlo TV Festival.

Earlier this month, Williams received the TV Actor of the Year award from the Young Hollywood Awards, which was presented to him by his “Grey’s” co-star, Ellen Pompeo.

Before appearing on “Grey’s Anatomy,” Williams appeared on the big screen in films “Brooklyn’s Finest” and “The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2,” with TV appearances on “Law & Order,” Beyond the Break” and “Greek,” as “The Hotness Monster.”

The 29-year-old was born in Chicago, Illinois, and holds degrees in African American Studies and Film & Media arts.

Williams is also set to star in Joss Whedon’s 3-D thriller, “The Cabin in the Woods,” which also stars Richard Jenkins (The dead dad on “Six Feet Under”) and Bradley Whitford (Red John on “The Mentalist”).

The actor first appeared on “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2009 on the season six episode, “Invasion,” where doctors from Mercy West were merged with the staff of Seattle Grace.

Full episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” are currently available online at CTV.ca.
