Katherine Heigl Leaving Grey’s Anatomy

Katherine Heigl is finally leaving Grey’s Anatomy. Katherine-Heigl

After six years stormy of relationship with the hit medical drama, Heigl will be finally cut from the show just as she had wanted all along to focus on her movie career.

Heigl plays the role of Dr. Isobel “Izzie” Stevens, which gave her the 2007 Primetime Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes has already agreed for the departure of the actress. Latest news indicate that Heigl will not be returning to shoot any new episodes which may mean that her January 21 appearance was her last.

Heigl did not report back to work March 11 as she was expected to. She was on maternity leave for her adoptive daughter and she was also working on her next film Life As We Know It with Josh Duhamel. This may have helped Rhimes to agree on letting go of Heigl.
