Sad news, Grey’s Anatomy fandom. Our favorite kickass surgeon Cristina Yang will be leaving us soon.
In an interview with THR, actress Sandra Oh has confirmed that she has decided to depart the series after a decade.
“Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go. It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well. [Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the Grey’s writers to think of why she’s going to go.”
Showrunner Shonda Rhimes also echoed her thoughts on Oh’s decision and said that Cristina will get “the exit she deserves.”
Other original cast members of Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, James Pickens Jr. and Chandra Wilson) which contracts are also due to expire in May will also be deciding their GA fates in the coming weeks and months.
