Grey's Anatomy old-timers Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew will not be returning for the next season of the series.
It's a real hit for the fans, but an even bigger loss for the entire cast of the show. The actresses' colleagues couldn't hide their sorrow to see Jessica and Sarah's departure, and they decided to make farewell posts on social media.
Thanks for the memories
Ellen Pompeo, who plays the show's titular character, made an extensive post about the series' loss. She noted how hard it is to see them go and promised there will be no dry eyes watching Capshaw and Drew's final episodes.
The 48-year-old actress then made separate appreciation post for both of her colleagues thanking them for hard work and contribution to the series.
Boom... @thank you @jessicacapshaw for bringing it the way you have brought it for 10 amazing years... what a blessing you are and what a contribution you made to television history. Lit that screen up with your glow on the LGBT community... making a difference and making it all look so easy... ⭐️⭐️⭐️💥💥❤️💔⭐️GOAT #representationmatters #loveyou
Jesse Williams had a particularly close storyline with Sarah Drew's character. He highlighted how much work went into their time on the show, and it is very sad to see how his dear friend leaves.
Y’all have no idea how much work we both put into these stories. The late nights, rehearsals & rewrites. The patience, frustration & tears. You didn’t always love us. Somethings take time, effort & trust. #Japril will last forever for a reason. #ThankYouSarahDrew @sarahdrew pic.twitter.com/tZQfIee2Dk— jesse Williams. (@iJesseWilliams) 18 мая 2018 г.
Other cast members also didn't stand aside and said their goodbyes to Jessica and Sarah.
So much love all around.
Many dedicated fans of the show took to Twitter to express their sadness and thank the actresses for creating their beloved characters.

I hate seeing April leave. She's a role model. Japril was one of the reasons I watch Grey's. I love you and April so much.— SydVaughnFan2🎈🌹 (@Sydvaughnfan2) 18 мая 2018 г.
