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.

Are you ready to let go of Cristina Yang? Sound off in the comments!

    noo.. Greys anatomy is incomplete without the twisted sisters and nobody complements Meredith like Christina!! its like Meredith family is getting smaller after George and Lexie dying and Izie leaving… I missed them already

    Wow I was upset when Lexie died, but this is a totally different story. Cristina has been my favorite character since the first episode, and I don’t think I’ll keep watching this show after she “leaves”.
    Not even Jackson and April’s relationship one of my fave aspects of the show could be able to change that. I think they should just end the show now, when it’s still great, instead of coming up with catastrophies for the finale! (a shooting, a plaincrash, a superstorm to mention a few…) More of those and Shonda should consider bringing Sam and Dean Winchester in to make everything make at least a little bit of sense.

    I think they need to end the show. At this point so many of my favorite characters are already gone and now we are losing Cristina. I have lost interest the past few seasons already and only was coming back for certain characters. Losing the reason to watch!
