Goodbye Dr. Alex Karev.
Deadline exclusively reported Friday that Grey’s Anatomy veteran Justin Chambers is officially exiting the medical drama.
Chambers starred on the hit ABC series since it debuted in 2005.
“There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past 15 years,” Chambers said in a statement. “For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices. And, as I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time.
“As I move on from Grey’s Anatomy, I want to thank the ABC family, Shonda Rimes, original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, and the rest of the amazing cast and crew, both past and present, and, of course, the fans for an extraordinary ride.”
Pompeo, aka Dr. Meredith Grey, is officially the last original intern still on the show.
Chamber’s last episode has already aired on November 14th.
