This week ended with the news that Justin has left Grey’s Anatomy. His final episode already aired in November and it was the 350th episode (ep 16.08 titled “My Shot”).

This is Justin’s statement on his departure:

null“There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past 15 years. For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices. And, as I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time. As I move on from Grey’s Anatomy, I want to thank the ABC family, Shonda, original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, and the rest of the amazing cast and crew, both past and present, and, of course, the fans for an extraordinary ride.”

 
This is kind of hard to do but I just wanted to briefly say something. As an Alex Karev fan since 2005, it’s been a privilege to have been on this extraordinary ride for 15 years. Words can’t even begin to express how much Alex has meant to me and to so many others. He is a complex and layered individual who has overcome so many hardships, and it resulted in the greatest character development of anyone on the show. The character and his journey resonated with people because he was portrayed truthfully and beautifully by such a talented actor. Grey’s owes much of its success to Justin devoting all these years to playing Alex. He has been an integral part of the show and by far a fan favorite. Not everyone can say they’re a part of TV history, or that they’re a pop culture icon, or that they’ve played a character that has inspired and given hope to so many, but Justin can (though he won’t because he’s humble like that). And at the end of it all, I (and I’m sure so many other fans) have so much love and appreciation for him and endless gratitude for his dedication to playing Alex Karev for 15 years.🙏❤️
Now a new chapter has begun and I look forward to whatever Justin chooses to do next.✨

P.S. – The site has been down for a while with technical issues but things seem to be getting resolved, so I’ll likely be updating in the next few days.

So, here’s what has been going on lately. JCO moved to another server and it caused several problems on the site, such as not being able to make posts and the photo archive being invisible. I’m now able to make posts (clearly), the archive is visible again, but there’s an issue with seeing the full-sized photos. Just letting you know it’s being worked on. Once that problem is solved, I’ll post links to the new material added to the archive.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but it’s been complicated to say the least. 😣

I’ve been updating JCO’s social media accounts with the Grey’s synopses, photos, sneak peeks & promos, so you can get all that on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

 
In the meantime, I’ll leave the synopsis and promo for this Thursday’s episode of Grey’s titled “It’s Raining Men.”

“It’s Raining Men” – After Meredith inadvertently stirs up negative press for Grey Sloan, she tries to make things right with her former colleagues, jeopardizing her community service hours. Station 19’s Ben and Vic bring a young woman into the hospital, and Jackson stands up to Koracick when he goes too far with a patient’s family. Meanwhile, Bailey receives unexpected news; and Owen finds himself at Pac-North Gen, which Alex sees as a recruiting opportunity on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, OCT. 17 (8:00-9:01 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

 
 
To wrap this update, this Wednesday, the Grey’s Anatomy cast, crew, producers (including creator Shonda Rhimes) along with the President of ABC Entertainment celebrated another milestone – the 350th episode! Congratulations to everyone on Grey’s! 🎉👏
Check out a few pics from the celebration in the IG post below (swipe/click for the pics). When the archive is fully back, I’ll make a more complete post about the 350th episode celebration including these photos in high quality.😉

We’re days away from the September 26th season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy, and we’ve got a bit more footage and news about Alex Karev in season 16.

★ In an interview with E!, showrunner Krista Vernoff mentions Justin and talks about what’s ahead of Alex. Check out what she had to say before and read the full interview at the link.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 Is About the Consequences Of the Romantic Comedy

Richard and Alex: Richard and Alex may not have exactly committed the same crime Mer did, but they’re fired for knowing about it. This results in both comedy and drama. 
“Jim [Pickens] and Justin [Chambers] are very funny this season, and it’s not just comedy. This show lives in that dramedy place, so there are dramatic ramifications and consequences, particularly for Richard. It’s a dramatic shift to be fired from the place that you’ve worked all these years, and to have your wife sit by and not do anything about you being fired. So there are dramatic consequences for sure, but there’s a lot of comedy surrounding it.”

Jo and Alex: Jo (Camilla Luddington) committed herself at the end of last season, and Vernoff says the season “follow[s] through on that story in away that feels really beautiful and honest to me.” 
“We play a little bit of it in the season premiere and then we play a little bit more of it a few episodes into the season, and I feel really hopeful for Jo and Alex because she’s addressing her mental health, but that can be frightening for Alex because he has a history of women in his life with mental health problems,” Vernoff says, reminding us of Alex’s mother and ex. “So for sure as we head into our season, Alex is shaken up and it’s hard to know exactly where they’re going to land.” 

 

★ ABC released an extended promo for the Grey’s season premiere and it has more Justin/Alex in it.

 

★ Finally, ABC also posted a behind the scenes video from episode 15.06 titled “Flowers Grow Out of My Grave” showing Justin and Camilla Luddington shooting a hallway scene.

★ As many of you noticed, the site was down for quite a while due to technical issues. However, those issues have mostly been resolved now and, hopefully, new ones won’t come up. Sorry for the inconvenience of that down time, but JCO is back now. 🙂

★ Production on season 16 of Grey’s Anatomy started in late July and the premiere is on Thursday, September 26. The season premiere is titled “Nothing Left to Cling To.”

TVLine published a Fall TV preview for Grey’s featuring a photo of a scene between Alex Karev and Richard Webber at the loft.

 

ABC also released a promo for the season premiere. Check it out:

 

★ And finally, Camilla Luddington posted this photo of herself and Justin styled as 16-year-olds in the 80’s as a play on Grey’s 16th season starting later this month.

Over the past week I’ve been doing a much needed update to the Photo shoots/Modeling category of the photo archive. I added new photos, replaced old photos with better quality ones, and made some corrections to the album labels.

However, the biggest change is that I made new sub-categories for the albums. Previously, there were 2 sub-categories that divided everything by year (1990-2000 and 2000-present), but I found that having different types of content together just made things confusing. So, now there are 3 sub-categories: brand campaigns (photos and scans of advertising campaigns), fashion editorials (photos and scans of magazine editorials), and photo shoots (sorted by name of the photographer).

There is still more to be added but that will be for some other time. For now, here are the links to the albums that are new or have been updated:

Brand campaigns
Calvin Klein Sport & Jeans (1990)
Sport Ice – Iceberg (1992)
Emporio Armani (1993)
Diesel (1993)
Emporio Armani (1995)
Polo Jeans – Ralph Lauren
Calvin Klein Contradiction (1998)
Calvin Klein Contradiction (1999)
Calvin Klein (F/W 1999)
Calvin Klein (2000)
Calvin Klein Contradiction (2000)
Club Monaco (2000)
Emporio Armani (2003)

I took a bit of a break from the site and the social media accounts after season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy ended, but I’m back now. In fact, not only am I back, but I started an Instagram for the site. So, besides this site, Twitter and the Facebook page, there is also an Instagram account!

Below is the first JCO post and like it says, I’ll be posting photos, videos and news there so follow for more Justin content.😎
