E! Online’s Marc Malkin is reporting that T.R. Knight will not be returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ next season.

Knight’s departure shouldn’t come as too much of a shock…

Not only was [Knight’s character] George flatlining at the end of the season finale earlier this month, but the 36-year-old actor has reportedly wanted off the hit ABC series for quite some time.

An original member of the Grey’s cast, Knight asked out of his contract last December because he was not happy with the way his character was progressing. Word is that his relationship with show creator Shonda Rhimes has become too strained for either to continue working together.
