Guess Callie's moving to New York after all.

Following speculation that she was leaving the show after a particularly emotional tweet as filming wrapped, Sara Ramirez has confirmed that she's leaving Grey's Anatomy after 10 seasons.  

"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, the rest of the cast & crew, and I look forward to always being a part of the Shondaland family!"

Shonda Rhimes addressed the departure in her own statement.

"Dr. Callie Torres came into our lives dancing it out in her underwear almost a decade ago and I could not be happier or more proud of her journey.  Sara Ramirez's performance inspired me as well as millions of fans each week.  We wish her the best on her well-deserved time off. I will miss Callie tremendously, but am excited for what the future holds for Sara.  She will always have a home at Shondaland."

Callie spent the past few episodes considering a move to New York, where her girlfriend Penny (Samantha Sloyan) was about to start a fellowship. That plan died when Arizona won full custody of Sofia, but in tonight's season 12 finale, her ex-wife Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) arrived at Callie's door with two plane tickets and a plan to share custody as best they could.

Just a few weeks ago, Ramirez tweeted, "That's a wrap for Doctor #CallieTorres #Season13 #GreysAnatomy #ThankYou all for an enriching & unforgettable #Rollercoaster ride!"

She will be missed!
