Both Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are leaving ABC's struggling drama Grey's Anatomy.

Co-star James Pickens Jr. confirmed the rumors. Pickens was backstage at last weekend's NAACP when he was asked by US weekly if Heigl was leaving the show. "Yes, she is. Wherever Katherine goes, I wish her nothing but the best."

Pickens expressed similar sentiments regarding Knight.

"He's going too," Pickens said. "He just wanted to pursue other career paths."

Both Heigl and Knight--who are best friends in real life - have made no secret about their unhappiness on "Grey's." Knight has publicly complained about his lack of screen time and was reportedly threatening to leave the show earlier this season.

Fans have also grown tired this season of Izzy's storyline having "ghost sex" with her dead boyfriend, Denny.
