“It’s always hard for me to say goodbye to any of my characters,”
said Grey’s creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes of the fan-favorite characters.
“Both Arizona Robbins and April Kepner are not only beloved but iconic — both the LBGTQ and devout Christian communities are underrepresented on TV. I will be forever grateful to both Jessica and Sarah for bringing these characters to life with such vibrant performance and for inspiring women around the globe. They will always be a part of our Shondaland family.”
