Grey's Anatomy: T.R. Knight Out, Jessica Capshaw In

Senior Writer, BuddyTV's Michael Ausiello must've had a fabulous brunch with Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes today, because after a bit of a lull, he has confirmed two major pieces of Grey's Anatomy casting information for next season.  Ausiello has confirmed that T.R. Knight is leaving the show while Jessica Capshaw will be promoted to a series regular.

The Knight news is not incredibly surprising as the season ended with George being horribly crushed and disfigured by a bus, leading to him dressed in his soldier outfit in Seattle Grace's Hospital Heaven.  Ausiello claims that the network has finally agreed to let Knight out of his contract, meaning, unlike Meredith, George probably won't come back from the afterlife.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

Since George hasn't done much of anything for the past year or two, it's hard to be upset about this.  Now if only they let Katherine Heigl go as well, they can kill two birds with one stone.

The other bit of news is that Capshaw, who plays the delightfully quirky Arizona Robbins, will enter the new season of Grey's Anatomy as a series regular.  Before she goes off buying a new house and car, she should realize that the last time Grey's Anatomy promoted a woman from recurring to regular with hopes of being Callie's lesbian love interest, it didn't end well.
In fact, with Knight leaving, this could mean that sleeping with Callie Torres on Grey's Anatomy is the kiss of death.  Watch out, Eric Dane.
