Sandra Oh Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' after Season 10

Sandra Oh and Cristina Yang

Very, very sad news today 'Grey's Anatomy' fans. Sandra Oh, who has played the complicated and snarky Cristina Yang on the medical drama for the past 9 seasons, has decided that she will be leaving the show at the end of Season 10. Cristina Yang is my favourite character on 'Grey's Anatomy' and I am truly sad to hear that she will be moving on.

Oh decided to break the news to her co-workers today during the table read for the series' 200th episode. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Oh said about her departure, "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.”

'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes has promised that she will be giving Cristina "the exit she deserves." I swear to you, Shonda, you better not break my heart again like you did with George. I am going to miss the dynamic between Meredith and Cristina, which when all else has gone a little crazy in the series, has always been a constant source of entertainment and familiarity.

Are you said to hear that Sandra Oh is leaving 'Grey's'? How do you think her character should be written out of the show?

This: "I swear to you, Shonda, you better not break my heart again..."

As much as I hate to say it, at this point, I think Grey's should probably end gracefully after next season.
