Eric Dane Leaves 'Grey's Anatomy' - McSteamy Says Bye!

Eric Dane has announced that he will not be returning to Grey’s Anatomy for the upcoming ninth season.

“I am extremely grateful to everyone at Grey’s, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories I have had over the course of this run,” the 39-year-old actor told TV Line. “It has been wonderful to work alongside and learn from a creative force such as [executive producer] Shonda Rhimes.”

“[McSteamy is] one of the most beloved characters on Grey’s Anatomy. [Eric] did not come to this decision lightly, but after much consideration and conversations, he and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end,” Shonda said. “We’re a big family here at Grey’s with a long history together and Eric will always remain an important part of our family. I wish him the best and I look forward to watching him as he continues to steam up the big and small screen.”

    The woman never even bothers changing her statement. She said the exact same thing when announced Lexie was leaving the show. I’m pissed!

    Mark and Lexie were one of the main reasons I watched the show. I was always hoping that they will end up together, especially after her “I love you ” in front of the hospital. I am very disappointed :(

    He was my favorite character ever.
    No matter what Shonda says anymore, the show dies a little bit every time she kills (or make go away) someone we love.

    But SERIOUSLY, after what happened to Lexie, I would expect anything from Grey’s. it’s a shame though.

    Grey’s Anatomy is a fantastic show but it is just way too much of an emotional roller coaster with all the departures of beloved characters. Denny, Burke, Izzie, George, Lexie, Teddy, and now Mark!? I get that some of them were forced upon Shonda by the actors who demanded to leave but others were not. It’s tough to get attached to a character only to see them exit the show.

    Liz Says:

    Wow… Shonda really wants to kill her show. The only characters I like are Meredith, Derek, Mark (I LOVED the friendship between those two… Heck, Mark made even Lexie be likeable!), and Cristina & Owen.

    Well, since he left the show as well, Shonda could have made Lexie leave with Mark, living happily ever after…

    Damn, I’m kind of sad. Tough I haven’t watched grey’s for the last season because the show lost some magic for me in earlier seasons. And I’ve always was a great fan of Mark and Addison relationship and was sad when it didn’t work out. Then I kind of liked Mark and Lexie together but started getting tired of the on and off thing. So maybe it’s better Eric leaves. Maybe Shonda will see there’s something wrong with her show…

    right time? LOL she said the same thing about Lexie. Rhimes wanted the two gone because she can NOT write a good story.
    Proper bye? Have him die with his soul mate b-! She thought she can kill people for attention, she is not unhappy she can write another killing/death!

    GreysFan Says:

    How in the Hell are ya’ll blaming Shonda? How do you know it wasn’t Eric’s decision to leave? That he approached her on his character making an exit?

    I’m soooo sick of black folks being the scapegoat for damn thing. That’s for damn sure.

    Mara Says:

    LMAO. Good, now I don’t have to feel bad not watching anymore. My heart broke with Lexie’s death and watching Mark mourn would be too much for me. McSlexie forever.

    So, judging by the end of last season, she’s gonna kill Mark too ? Awesome, Shonda. You know how to kill a great show. Mark and Lexie were my favorite couple, I was rooting for them, hoping they will eventually come together, but nooo. Shootings, plane crashes, car crashes, ambulance crashes, bombs – just a normal day at Seattle Grace. At least keep him alive, making him move out of Seattle, because living there is too painful for him.
