Katherine Heigl Takes Hiatus From Grey's Anatomy

Katherine Heigl will be stepping away from Grey’s Anatomy for five episodes this season, EW reports.

The 30-year-old actress needs the break to shoot her new romantic comedy Life as We Know It, which is being directed by Greg Berlanti (The Broken Hearts Club). Her leave of absence is bound to coincide with co-star Ellen Pompeo‘s maternity leave.

E! reports Izzie (Heigl) will disappear for awhile after getting fired during the merger of Seattle Grace and crosstown rival Mercy West. Meredith (Pompeo) will also fade into the background for a bit while new doctors take front and center: Nora Zehetner, Robert Baker, and Jesse Williams.
