Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Katherine Heigl Officially Gone From Grey's Anatomy

It can now be confirmed that Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl has officially left the show.

While reports of Heigl’s unhappiness at being forced to stay in her contract with ABC have been widely reported, it is now clear that Shonda Rhimes and company have agreed to let the actress who played Izzie Stevens out of her deal and she is now free to pursue movies.

Sources in Heigl’s camp claim that the actress was never given a call time to return to work on set after her family leave ended. According to this source, Heigl’s “calls weren’t returned” when she phoned in asking when to report back.

An official announcement is expected this week.
