— -- Goodbye, Callie Torres.

"Grey's Anatomy" star Sara Ramirez, who has played the orthopedic surgeon since 2006, will not be returning next season.

"I'm deeply grateful to have spent the last 10 years with my family at Grey’s Anatomy & ABC but for now I'm taking some welcome time off," Ramirez said in a statement. "Shonda's been so incredible to work for and we will definitely continue our conversations! I send my Love to Ellen [Pompeo], the rest of the cast & crew, and I look forward to always being a part of the Shondaland family!"
