Katherine Heigl announced yesterday she will no longer be part of the cast of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Heigl asked series creator Shonda Rhimes to end her contract early and will not be returning for the current season’s last five episodes as previously planned. Therefore, the January 21 episode was her last as Dr. Isobel Stevens. Heigl cited her family as the reason she was leaving the show and not because of her growing film career. Recently, Heigl took a three-month family leave from the show after she adopted her daughter. ABC Studios in response to Heigl’s decision released this statement: “By mutual agreement, Katherine Heigl has ended her successful run as Dr. Isobel Stevens. The studio wishes her well. Everyone at Grey’s Anatomy is now focused on delivering a shocking season finale and a great show for seasons to come.”

Hines will play Evelyn’s liberal counterpart who can’t stand her and Fisher will play Evelyn’s cranky manager.
