Grey's Anatomy SEASON 8 - Official Sneak Peek

After 6 seasons as Dr. Mark Sloane, the man whose abs made him a sex symbol and gave him the nickname “McSteamy”, Eric Dane made the announcement Thursday that he will not be returning to the hit ABC series, Grey’s Anatomy.

“I am extremely grateful to everyone at Grey‘s, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories”; he said in a statement to TV Line. “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.”

Dane follows actresses Chyler Leigh (Lexi Grey) and Kim Raver (Teddy Altman) out the door, but will be back for a few episodes for the upcoming 9th season to give him a proper send-off (his TV beau, Lexi died in a plane crash in the season 8 finale).

“After much consideration and conversations, she and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end,” creator Shonda Rhimes also 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.”

Well, there goes my last reason to watch.
