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

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.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

You want to be a mess, be a mess. I don't care. I can take it.

Alex

It's one of those things that people say, you can't move on until you let go of the past. Letting go is the easy part, it's the moving on that's painful. So sometimes we fight it, try and keep things the same. Things can't stay the same though. At some point, you just have to let go. Move on. Because no matter how painful it is, it's the only way we grow.
