Katherine Heigl is Leaving Grey’s Anatomy
Maybe it’s time to say goodbye to Izzie Stevens.
Although it’s not official yet, the sad news is a big possibility, as the actress who play the role on Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine Heigl is reportedly heading to exit door.
Insiders at the popular medical drama, and the show’s network, ABC, said that Heigl has been asking to leave the show for close to three years now, and she finally got what she wanted last week when Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes and the higher ABC executives agreed to let her out of her contract.
An insider shared, “She’s leaving the show. She wants to do movies.” But from Heigl’s camp, the actress was reported never given a call time to return to work on the show set after her family leave ended earlier this month. According to this source, Heigl’s “calls weren’t returned” when she phoned in asking when to report back.
It is said that she will return to the Grey’s set at all this season, and Shonda’s writing staff is still determining how to handle her departure in the storyline. It hasn’t been decided yet if it will be left open for her character to return.
About the news, ABC’s rep has no comment, and Heigl just parted ways with her personal publicist. Hmm… let’s just wait for more updates then!
