Fans have grown fond of Owen Hunt, played by the multitalented Kevin McKidd, but after season 18’s winter finale, many are worried he might be leaving “Grey’s Anatomy.” With the show’s penchant for killing off its popular characters, the concern is merited, so what does the future have in store for Dr. Hunt?
In the winter finale, Owen was involved in a car accident that culminated with his vehicle toppling over a cliff. The status of his character has yet to be confirmed, but there are several signs that McKidd will not be leaving the show.
When "Grey's Anatomy" Season 19 renewal was announced in January, McKidd was named as one of the confirmed returning actors and his name is listed on IMDb as a cast member in future episodes. None of this is conclusive proof he will stay, so fans will just have to keep tuning in to learn Owen’s fate.
