"Grey’s Anatomy" has let T.R. Knight out of his contract, Entertainment Weekly reports, citing unnamed sources.
The actor asked to be let out of his contract three years early amid rumors that he and showrunner Shonda Rhimes were not getting along. The official decision was made in the past few days.
Knight’s exit suggests that his character George, whose fate was left in question at the end of last season’s finale, will not survive.
Representatives for Knight and ABC declined to comment.
Additionally, the Web site reports that Jessica Capshaw has been made a series regular on the ABC series.
