It’s been forever and a day since we’ve seen Katherine Heigl’s Izzie at Seattle Grace and I’m sure you guys are wondering, what’s up with that? Well, Ausiello tells us what Grey’s show-runner Shonda Rhimes has in store for Katherine Heigl’s character!
According to Ausiello, Rhimes has agreed “to release the fast-rising movie star from her contract.” ABC and Heigl’s team have yet to come to an agreement on when and how Heigl’s character will be making her exit from the show.
Sources tell Ausiello that Heigl was due back on set on March 1 but when March 1 came, Heigl was nowhere to be found feeding the rumors that perhaps Heigl’s team and ABC have executed a final exit agreement and that Heigl will no longer be returning on set — meaning that Izzie’s last scenes have already been filmed and aired.
No official word yet from either ABC or Heigl’s reps — will keep you guys informed when we find out more!
