Eric Dane is Checking Out of 'Grey's Anatomy'

| by I Need My Fix

NOOOOOO. This can't be happening. Eric Dane announced that he won't be returning to our beloved Grey's Anatomy:

"I am extremely grateful to everyone at Grey's, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories I have had over the course of this run. It has been wonderful to work alongside and learn from a creative force such as Shonda Rhimes." 

He plays Dr. Eric Sloan or as the majority of us call him Dr. McSteamy. The show's creator (Rhimes):

"After much consideration and conversations, he and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end," she told TVLine. "We're a big family here at Grey's with a long history together and Eric will always remain an important part of our family." 

People is also reporting that Kim Raver left the show. That's it. I bet this will be its last season. 

Will you miss him? Do you think the show can survive without him?
