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.✨
