Don't go, Dr. Ben Warren! Another Grey's Anatomy actor bites the dust, as Jason George is sadly leaving the medical drama after seven years, he confirmed via Twitter on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Don't get too upset yet, though. He's joining the show's upcoming spin-off instead!
"Oh, and, um,...this is happening... The #GreysAnatomy universe is expanding," he tweeted with an article confirming the news. Jason has appeared on the hit medical drama since its sixth season in 2010. He became a series regular during Season 12 of the ABC series.

The spin-off is set to be about a group of Seattle firefighters, and will focus on both their professional and their home lives. If you remember from the Season 13 finale, Ben ran inside the fire to try and save his fellow doctor Stephanie Edwards — who has also left the show for another TV opportunity — so this role sounds totally fitting for him.
The new series has yet to be named (any suggestions?), but it's rumored to be airing midseason of Grey's Anatomy. Although it's yet to be confirmed, there's been talks that Rosewood alum Jaina Lee Ortiz will be the show's star. There's been no other word on who else is joining, but imagine if any of the former Grey's stars came on board?
But, what will this mean for his marriage with Dr. Miranda Bailey (aka Chandra Wilson)?! Will they divorce? Will she go with him? Will he die in the show? We're not saying that's out of the question knowing the show's creator Shonda Rhimes. Be sure to catch the Season 14 premiere of Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m on ABC to find out!
