Poor Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) has had his ups and downs when it comes to relationships — both friendships and romances. His complicated relationship with Intern Morgan (Amanda Fuller) in Season 8 was no different.

Their relationship ended on a tragic note in Season 8, with Morgan's preemie baby dying. But is there a chance they could reconnect in some manner in Season 9?

Maybe not, because Amanda Fuller has scored herself a big new gig! According to Entertainment Weekly, Amanda has been cast in the role of Tim Allen's eldest daughter, Kristin Beth Baxter, on the ABC sitcom Last Man Standing. The role is actually a recasting — Kristin had previously been played by Alexandra Krosney.

Of course, this doesn't exclude Amanda from continuing to guest star on Grey's Anatomy, but it probably means she won't be expanding her part any time soon.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
