‘Grey’s Anatomy’ is currently one of the longest-running television shows out there, with its 17th season still going strong. The show made its debut in 2005 and was a smash hit with fans and critics alike. It remains ABC’s most popular drama.
Throughout its duration, the show has featured several characters being killed off or actors leaving the show. As reported earlier, fan-favorite Jesse Williams confirmed that he will be leaving the show and that happened on the latest episode of the show. However, in an unexpected twist, another star has left the show during the episode.
Greg Germann, who portrayed the role of Tom Koracick since 2017 will no longer be a regular on the series. E! News reports Germann is no longer a series regular but fans can still expect to see his character somewhere down the line. Showrunner Krista Vernoff released a statement regarding Greg Germann’s departure from the series as a regular.
“Greg Germann is a comic genius, and we are so lucky that he brought his talents to our show these last few years. We will miss Greg terribly in the day to day—but we plan to see Tom Koracick again!”
The 63-year-old actor is also famous for his roles in Ally McBeal and films including Talladega Nights. Germann released a statement where he showed his appreciation to fans and his co-stars.
“To have worked with all the incredibly talented people involved with Grey’s over the past few years has been such a privilege. A big thank you to the fans, as it has truly been a shared experience!”
The two aren’t the only actors to leave the show as earlier in the season, Giacomo Giannotti’s Andrew DeLuca died after being stabbed by an attempted kidnapper on the crossover episode of Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy. We will have to see what is next in store for Greg Germann.
