Kate Walsh to Officially Enter Her Own Private Practice Next Fall
Spin-offs don't always work, and the May 3 debut wasn't perfect. But in this case, ABC liked what it saw enough to take a shot.

The network is hoping that Kate Walsh will serve as its secret weapon next fall, and officially chose to pick up the Walsh-led Grey's Anatomy spin-off, currently entitled Private Practice, for next season.

In addition to Walsh's character, Addison Montgomery, the new show stars Taye Diggs, Tim Daly, Paul Adelstein, Chris Lowell, Merrin Dungey and Amy Brenneman.

While this certainly simplifies the race for a chief at Seattle Grace (not to mention a number of love lives), many Grey's fans would rather see Addison continue her ongoing Anatomy lesson with Dr. Alex Karev.

Then again, according to our exclusive poll, at least 50 percent of respondents either liked or loved what they saw of the spin-off as it debuted as part of "The Other Side of This Life."

Congratulations to Kate. We'll miss you on Grey's Anatomy, but we'll be watching your new venture and wishing you the best!

Oh no. I am happy for Kate, but I am agreeing with chikritolni. I think that Private Practice will be a hit, but still, I can't believe she's leaving Grey's Anatomy! And to answer your question, ChooseCallie, I think it will be in Wednesday, but I'm not sure.

While I am happy for her new challange of her own show, I will miss her on Greys and I am one that would love to see her continue the anatomy lesson with Alex.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
