The Grey Anatomy series since it premiered has kept its audiences spellbound to their screens because of talented acts like Sarah Drew, Jessica Capshaw, Sandra Oh, Patrick Dempsey, and Justin Chambers. The series which has made a good run with 16 seasons has made history as the longest-running medical television show thanks to the intrigues, plot twists and sudden death or scripting out/exit of some of its main or regular casts.
The unpredictability of the show is perhaps what has left many of it’s devoted fans wondering if Justin Chambers popularly known as Dr. Alex Karev at the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is about to take a bow from the show anytime soon or if he would emerge yet again in the 16th season.
What Is His Age?
Justin Willman Chambers is a former model, singer, and American actor who was birthed in the Springfield city of Ohio, 11th of July 1970. He kicked off his acting career in 1995 and burst into fame via the medical drama Grey’s Anatomy which he originally starred in as a surgical intern in 2005. Since then, he has grown over the past decades and has made a big impression on fans of the series who are eager to get more of him on the show.
Is Justin Chambers Leaving Grey’s Anatomy?
The actor’s exceptional acting skill in the show’s first season earned him a spot as a regular cast which he has explored in all ramifications and has grown to eventually became the chief medical officer of the hospital, a brief position he held in the place of Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo). This same seamless acting prowess has seen him stay on the show for its fifteen seasons – and perhaps will still be on board for the 16th installment. The Golden Globe award-winning series has kept the fans in rapt attention worldwide. Interestingly, the series is also one of ABC best-rated shows on TV.
Years down the line, the Grey Anatomy drama series via its plot twists has left many hearts broken when some main characters like Arizona Robbins (played by Jessica Capshaw) and Dr. April Kapner (portrayed by Sarah Drew) exited the show. Any more exit/death of the series main characters like Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr, Ellen Pompeo and even our subject of discourse Justin Chambers in the over a decade old TV series may further break more hearts. The multiple award-winning series has already been renewed in May 2019 for its 16th and 17th seasons still has more twists and could be nearing its end soon.
The season 16 is as intriguing as other seasons. Meredith Grey and Andrew DeLuca (who is portrayed by Giacomo Gianniotti) are already neck-deep in trouble for using illegal treatment periods on their patient. DeLuca is already serving prison term while Meredith who is also Andrew DeLuca’s love interest is getting ready to confess her complicity in the case which invariably would land her in jail. Will their declaration of love hold up or will their hearts become disengaged from each other as the aftermath of their incarceration in jail? Only view time will tell.
That’s not all, we are eager to see how Chief Alex Karev copes with his depressed wife Jo Karev who is played by Camilla Luddington, as well as the sudden incarceration of his good friend Dr. Meredith.
On other matters, how will Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) and Amelia Shephard (Caterina Scorsone) catastrophic marriage end? Will he manage the co-parenting of a baby with Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) well?. These and more are still to come.
The story is lining up pretty well and we can not wait to savor the moments on our TV screens with drinks and popcorn in hand. The obvious question from fans was if Justin Chambers will be in the next season but with the renewal of season 16, it has been told that it has Justin Chambers in it so we know he is still very much around.
Although the 5 feet 11 inches tall actor is famed as a regular face in the Primetime Emmy award-winning show, he has to his credit other cameos appearances and noteworthy movies and series such as Liberty Height, The Wedding Planner, The Musketeer, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Seasons of Love, 3 episodes of Cold Cases, the list goes on.
Amazingly, his long years on the set of Grey Anatomy has earned him many award nominations some of which are Satellite Award for Best Ensemble in television, Screen Actors Guild’s Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble, People’s Choice award for favorite dramatic actor and of course, Prism Award for Male Performance in a Drama Series Multi-Episode storyline.
