Life After fifteen years, Justin Chambers is cutting down with Grey’s Anatomy By weekster Posted on January 11, 2020 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Justin Chambers thinks it is enough after 15 years of Grey’s Anatomy and therefore stops the medical drama series. Chambers played the role of doctor Alex Karev for sixteen seasons. “There is not a good time to say goodbye to a show and character who have defined my life over the past fifteen years,” the actor says in a statement. “But lately I wanted to take on different roles and take a different path in my career. I will soon be fifty and happy with my wonderful, encouraging wife and five wonderful children, so now is the time.” Chambers started the Seattle Grace Hospital series in 2005. He and Ellen Pompeo are the only actors who played in all sixteen seasons.
