It's the end of an era! After 15 years on the show, actor Justin Chambers has announced he's leaving Grey's Anatomy.
The 50 year old is the man behind Dr Alex Karev - who has been on the show since the very beginning.
"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." the actor told E! News.
"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."
"As I move on from Grey's Anatomy, I want to thank the ABC family, Shonda Rimes, original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, and the rest of the amazing cast and crew, both past and present, and, of course, the fans for an extraordinary ride."
We wish Justin and his family all the best for whatever comes next!
