There’ll be 50 percent less chatter amongst the Grey Sloan residents next season on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

Per our sister site Deadline, neither Friday Night Lights alum Gaius Charles nor Tessa Ferrer are having their options picked up for Season 11, and thus will not be series regulars come fall.

Both Charles and Ferrer (who play Shane and Leah) joined Grey’s in Season 9 – along with Tina Majorino, who was killed off in this season’s opener, Camilla Luddington and Jerikka Hinton – then got promoted to full-on cast members last summer.

Also to be absent from Grey’s Season 11 is original cast member Sandra Oh, whose exit was announced in August.
