Whew! Shonda Rhimes has been putting Grey’s Anatomy fans through it for 17 seasons now, and it looks like she and her team have don’t it yet again. Thursday’s epidote of Grey’s revealed that Jesse Williams is saying goodbye to the show and his role as Dr. Jackson Avery after 12 seasons.
In the latest episode, fans learnt that Dr. Avery is moving to Boston and his twin flame April is signing those divorce papers! Grey’s fans took to Twitter with so many spoilers about how the last episode ended, and it’s safe to say Dr. Avery will be sorely missed.
“Jesse Williams is an extraordinary artist and activist. Watching his evolution these past 11 years both on screen and off has been a true gift,” Krista Vernon said in a statement to ET. “Jesse brings so much hear, such depth of care, and so much intelligence to his work. We will miss Jesse terribly and we will miss Jackson Avery–played to perfection for so many years.”
While Jesse has not revealed what prompted his exit from the show, he told ET that he is very proud of the work that he has done while being part of the cast.
“The experience and endurance born of creating nearly 300 hours of leading global television is a gift that I’ll cary always,” Jesse said. “I am immensely proud of our work, our impact and to be moving forward with so many tools, opportunities, allies and dear friends.”
It seems like the cast of Grey’s has been dropping like flies as of late, as many of them have been killed off. Who do y’all think will be next, Roomies?
