Showrunner Krista Vernoff is exiting GREY’S ANATOMY and STATION 19 at the end of the season.

“It has been the privilege of a lifetime to be entrusted to run GREY’S ANATOMY for the past six years and STATION 19 for the last four,” Vernoff said in a statement. The passion of the dedicated fandoms and the impact that these shows have on hearts and minds cannot be overstated. The amount of talent in these two extraordinary casts and these two brilliant writers rooms is beyond measure — and these crews work magic week after week. I will be forever grateful to Shonda Rhimes for her trust and to Disney and ABC for their support.”

“The last time I left GREY’S ANATOMY, I was gone for seven seasons and the show was still going when Shonda called me to run it,” she continued. “So I’m not saying goodbye because that would be too bitter sweet. I’m saying ‘See you in seven seasons.’”

Added Rhimes: “Krista’s creativity, vision and dedicated leadership have allowed GREY’S ANATOMY and STATION 19 to continue to flourish. I am incredibly grateful to her for all her hard work. She will always remain part of the Shondaland family.”

“Krista Vernoff has poured her heart and soul into GREY’S ANATOMY and STATION 19, and her voice has been pivotal to the success of these beloved series,” Craig Erwich, president, ABC Entertainment, Hulu & Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals concluded. “It takes a formidable leader to run two shows simultaneously and Krista has done so effortlessly. Her creative force has left an indelible mark and thanks to her, our viewers will continue to be invested in these dynamic and cherished characters for many years to come.”

GREY’S ANATOMY is undergoing its own major transition this season, as longtime star Ellen Pompeo is also exiting the medical drama in February.

Deadline was first to report the news.
