[ # ] Alex Karev checked out of Grey’s Anatomy
January 10th, 2020 under Shonda Rhimes

Justin Chambers has been with Grey’s Anatomy since day one. However, after 350 episodes, he is saying goodbye to the show that has been his home for 15 years.

He explained why he left to Deadline as, “There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past 15 years.” Then he added, “For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices. And, as I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time.”

He also went on to thank the fans, show creator Shonda Rhimes, the remaining three originals: Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, and everyone else who has worked on the show.

Sadly, it does not look like he is going to get a proper send-off like Sandra Oh or get killed off like so many others. Instead, when he left to take care of his mom in the 350th episodes, that was his swan song. Which is sad because Alex Karev deserved better than that.

BTW Who is still watching this show? I gave it up so long ago; I cannot remember why I stopped watching. Yet, I do not miss it.
