Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Justin Chambers

Grey's Anatomy: Justin Chambers Confirms Season 13 Return

Tear up those discharge papers: Justin Chambers is staying put on Grey’s Anatomy.

The actor confirmed on Twitter Thursday night that he will be back as Alex Karev for the ABC drama’s just-renewed 13th season.

Chambers’ current deal expires this spring, at the conclusion of the show’s current 12th season. Other Grey’s vets whose contracts are set to expire this season include Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Sara Ramirez and Kevin McKidd.

Back in January, McKidd told TVLine that the likelihood of him re-signing was very high. “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t happen. I love [the show],” he said, adding, “I’m not being corny or giving you the party line, but this has been like a family for me.”

ABC declined to comment.
