“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.”
