Playing Is Sara Ramirez Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' After This Season?

Is Sara Ramirez ready to say goodbye to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital?

The actress wrapped her work on the 12th season of Grey’s Anatomy on Wednesday and sent fans into a frenzy with a celebratory tweet.

“That's a wrap for Doctor #CallieTorres #Season13 #GreysAnatomy,” Ramirez wrote. “#ThankYou all for an enriching & unforgettable #Rollercoaster ride!”

The wording of Ramirez’s tweet immediately launched speculation that she might not be returning for the next season of Shonda Rhimes’ medical drama, despite the fact that she did add the “#Season13” hashtag. The actress joined the long-running ABC show in season two.

ET has reached out to Ramirez’s reps for confirmation, while an ABC rep declined to comment on the matter to TVLine.

So what’s going to happen? Was Ramirez just celebrating the end of her season with an introspective tweet? Is she attempting to build up some negotiating leverage? (The actress’ contract is set to expire in June.) Or, in true Grey’s fashion, is May’s season 12 finale the last fans will see of Dr. Callie Torres?
