EXCLUSIVE: Grey’s Anatomy is bidding adieu to two recent cast additions. I’ve learned that series regulars Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles are not getting their contracts picked up for next season. It is unclear whether they could make guest appearances in the future. Ferrer and Charles, along with Camilla Luddington and Jerikka Hinton, joined ABC‘s Grey’s Anatomy as recurring last season, playing new interns. All four got promoted to regular heading into the current 10th season of the medical drama, which is poised to return next fall after stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey inked new deals to continue on the show. Ferrer’s Leah Murphy is a second-year resident who has been involved with Alex (Justin Chambers) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw). Fellow resident Shane Ross (Charles) has been romantically linked to Stephanie (Hinton) and Cristina (Sandra Oh). This also marks the final season for original Grey’s Anatomy cast member Oh. Other notable Grey’s alums include Isaiah Washington — who is returning for Oh’s farewell — T.R. Knight, Katherine Heigl, Chyler Leigh and Eric Dane.
