Heigl, Knight Reportedly Leaving Grey’s Anatomy

T.R. Knight and Katherine HeiglUPDATE: When asked about the departures, Shonda Rhimes said “I’m not saying what’s going to happen on the show, but that is a rumor.”

Seattle Grace may be looking to hire two new surgeons next fall.

Over the weekend, actor James Pickens confirmed what many had already speculated: T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl will both be leaving . Pickens, who spoke to Us Weekly at a NAACP luncheon, said Knight’s decision to depart was simple. “He just wanted to pursue other career paths,” James explained.

And how will Pickens feel when Katherine finally works on movies full time? “Wherever Katherine goes, I wish her nothing but the best,” he claimed.

But was Dr. Richard Webber too quick to offer his well wishes?

While many believe T.R. and Katherine will eventually exit the program, many insiders assert that nothing has been made official. “There’s no way [Pickens] could know that, because nothing has been decided yet. Nothing has been written and [Heigl and Knight] are still working out what will happen next season with the network,” a source told E! Online.

Neither the network nor the actors’ reps have offered any comment on the rumors.
