by at . Comments

Tessa Ferrer will leave Grey Sloan Memorial at the end of Grey's Anatomy Season 10.

But the actress has already found a new home.

With Gaius Charles and Ferrer both not having their contracts picked up for Season 11 of this ABC hit, sources confirm that the actress has landed a recurring role on Extant.

The sci-fi drama will kick off on July 9 and star Halle Berry as an astronaut who tries to return to a normal life after a year in space.

But a life-changing event makes that impossible... and also threatens to change the course of human history.

Ferrer will portray Katie Sparks on the highly-anticipated series, an athletic, intelligent astronaut who must make a major decision when faced with something horrible.

Cue the suspense. And count us in.
