Moved on.

According to OK Magazine, actress Katherine Heigl, who plays Dr. Izzy Stevens on Grey's Anatomy, has confirmed that she will not be returning this season to do a guest spot as the popular character.

She reportedly explained that she is disappointed that her exit from the Primetime series is so final, but she has moved on. Katherine added that she felt any return at this point would be manipulative, and added that she misses her friendship with Justin Chambers who plays her character's husband, Dr. Alex Korev.
