Katherine Heigl and TR Knight Leaving Grey's Anatomy, Pickens Says

The Chief Says George and Izzie Are Leaving Grey's Anatomy

This crazy season of Grey's Anatomy just got a little weirder. James Pickens Jr. — Chief Richard Webber to you and me — has said that both Katherine Heigl and TR Knight are saying goodbye to the show.

According to the story, Us Weekly asked Pickens if Heigl was leaving, and he said, "Yes, she is" and added, "Wherever Katherine goes, I wish her nothing but the best." Then, of Knight, he said, "He's going too. He just wanted to pursue other career paths."

ABC hasn't commented, and Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello says he's hearing that Pickens may have jumped the gun, but unofficially, "all indications are that it will happen" and both Heigl and Knight will be leaving at some point.

Knight's barely been on screen this season, while Heigl's been front-and-center in the much-maligned ghost sex plotline. George and Izzie were the two original Grey's characters you wanted to ditch, but how do you want them to say goodbye?
