Sandra Oh to leave ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ in season 10

The 10th season of “Grey’s Anatomy” will debut on September 26th, and the last episode of this season will be broadcast next spring (May 2014).

“It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well,” the actress tells THR.

“Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go.[Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the writers to think of why she’s going to go.”

Sandra Oh has played doctor Cristina Yang since the first season of the show aired in 2005.
