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

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

Sandra Oh is set to leave her hit series Grey’s Anatomy after the upcoming tenth season, she tells The Hollywood Reporter.

“Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go,” the 42-year-old actress said. “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.”

Sandra says she told her co-stars about her plan to leave the show during their table read for the 200th episode today.

“I seriously think I need that much support over processing it over this next year for me to be able to leave fully and leave in a way that I feel like Cristina deserves,” Sandra said. “For the first time, at least for my character, you actually have an endpoint, which in series television you never or very rarely have.”

ARE YOU SAD that Sandra Oh is leaving Grey’s Anatomy?

    then grey’s anatomy needs to be cancelled after 10 seasons!! it can’t go on without mer&cristina’s friendship

  • Alaia

    Time to ditch the show altogether. It hasn’t been relevant for years.

    Cristina was always my favorite! I enjoy the seasons now, but the first 3 will always be the absolute best. I loved loved LOVED her storyline with Burke, I wish he never left. Good for her for making the decision, she was such a sassy “robot” who turned into so much more. I’ll miss her for sure

  • Sunshine

    OMG, I love cristina and I really love the show, I know I should let it go, but I can’t. I see another horrible death in the hands of Shonda!

  • Talia

    It’s still on? LOL

    THIS makes me SUPER sad
    the last season only rocked because of her and meredith

  • LOL

    Cristina is literally the best character on the show. She’s such a role model (career wise) for all girls. I can personally say she inspired me.

  • yorda

    Not good… there is barely any roles for minority actors especially asians she will have a really hard time getting other roles but anyways GOOD LUCK sandra!

  • Peeve

    I liked her with Burke too, but I haven’t watched the addictive Greys for years. It’s a black hole for your time. Switch off the TV, folks, and enjoy the outdoors or getting involved in social causes.

  • Jamie

    lol why would they cancel a show that still receives top ratings? TV is a business. Sucks …I love her character.


    Is this crap on tv

  • Tiana

    It is so funny how people call this show crap, or why is it still on b/c the demo and the ratings are still good sometimes the writing of the show can be off at times but believe it or not it’s still bringing in cash like it or not that what only matters.

  • Nancy1947

    I love Sandra Oh It won’t be the same without her! But at the same time I kinda expected it cause the way season 9 ended! Her and Owen want different thing’s he want’s kid’s she doesn’t which I never could understand! Meridith will be lost without her but she will have her new Baby and and Daughter to keep her busy! and Meridith will be ok!!!! I love Grey’s Anatomy and I hope it never goes off!!!!!!! My character’s are Meridith and Derrek!!!!!

    What’s the point of watching Grey’s Anatomy without Yang? It’s like Grey was the Yin and without his yang you just can’t go on. Cancel the show and have another spin off of it.

  • Enrique Reveles

    Grey’s Anatomy is Still on ???? ..
    Time for some shows to wrap it up as well .. this is one of them .

  • fade

    I watched this show for years and this character inspired me to became a surgeon as well. Now I’m almost there and i want to genuinely thank show creators and Sandra for giving me such a role-model when i was young.

  • Shawna

    I don’t think I’ll watch without Christina. She is my favorite character.

  • Natalie

    I agree with some users. Grey’s Anatomy just needs to be cancelled all together. Too many of their main/most interesting cast members are leaving because they want to move on to other things. Why can’t GA take the hint and just let them go by cancelling?

  • Barry Hussein

    She looks like she hit a concrete block wall at full speed.

  • JameyfromHolland

    Im going to miss her on the show. Im a big big big fan! and she will be missed from holland!

  • Rony

    Christina is one of the reasons we watch Grey’s. Without her, the show is probably on the way down. After losing Katherine Heigl, T.R. Knight and Eric Dane who knows if the show can survive without her.

  • christiana

    The show is superb it makes me want to be a doctor its well acted and well directed even better than Boston med that involved real doctors. Anyone can leave the show and be replaced after all.variety is the spice of life
