Shonda Rhimes Confirms Wedding Bells will Ring on GREY'S ANATOMY this Season; Plus Sandra Oh's Exit Arc Finalized
At last night's GREY'S ANATOMY 200th episode celebration, series creator Shonda Rhimes opened up about the current tenth season - including a wedding, and Sandra Oh's impending exit.
Rhimes told TV Guide that she's currenly at work on writing in a wedding, saying: "I've been planning one, so I think we're going to see one, yes. I'm not going to say a word, but we've been making plans for that kind of thing." The site notes that there's a good chance April and Matthew might be walking down the aisle, considering their engagement last spring.
Though wedding bells may ring before the end of the season, it'll also bring the exit of series staple Sandra Oh, who plays 'Dr. Cristina Yang.'
"We're all avoiding it tremendously," Rhimes said about Oh's departure, also confirming that Cristina's story arc has been finalized. "It's the back half of the season, so we have 22 episodes to really enjoy Cristina and love her, so we're just going to enjoy ourselves doing what we're doing now."
