Dr. Preston Burke is not likely to appear on the next season of Grey’s Anatomy.

Yes, he’s been fired. Producers will probably prepare one of those melodramatic disappearances for Dr. Preston Burke, maybe he’ll be pushed down the stairs and be paralyzed for the rest of his life or get stuck in the hospital elevator and just die there ‘cause no one will actually realize he is missing.

Sources say he even got fired over the phone. Oouch!
