Oh played irksome Dr. Cristina Yang since signing on to the series in 2005. Oh, 42, will depart the series after the end of the season.

"Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go," an emotional Oh tells THR. "It's such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well. [Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the Grey's writers to think of why she's going to go."

NBC Cancels The New Normal

NBC quietly canceled its groundbreaking gay sitcom "The New Normal" after just one season on Friday. The news was met with very little fanfare from the liberal media, which stood in stark contrast to the circus atmosphere hype surrounding the show's premiere on September 11, 2012.

The cancellation was among a long list of shows such as "Go On" and "Guys With Kids" which were also canceled Friday.
