Kate Walsh May Return Again This Season

by at . Comments

Kate Walsh has a big job ahead for fall. First and foremost, the actress has to help with the relaunch Private Practice, the much-touted but somewhat disappointing spinoff of Grey's Anatomy about a beach-based group of randy L.A. doctors.

But even though her character, Dr. Addison Montgomery, is starting to settle in at the Oceanside Wellness Center (David Sutcliffe guest stars as her boy toy!) she may take another trip back to Seattle Grace sometime this year.

The creator and executive producer of both shows, Shonda Rhimes, sort of hinted at this in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.

"I don't know if it's going to work with the story, and we don't want her to come back for a visit if it doesn't feel important, something only Addison can do," says Rhimes, wary of it being seen as a stunt. "But the idea is on the table."

This wouldn't be the first return of Addison; the redhead showed up in a Season Four episode of Grey's Anatomy last spring with Private Practice on hiatus.

Please bring her back fast!

Ever since she showed up at the end of season one I have been in love with Addison. She's beautiful, powerful, smart, and a bit jaded. She's my favorite grey's anatomy star.

YES! woohoo! I LOVE ADDISON! but yea I agree with the baby ideas... she is a baby doc after all... :D

Addierulzzz

yes!!!! wohooooo!!! I´m so freakin happy!
I always thought that merder wedding wouldnt be it if addie wasnt there, so that might be the reason but there has to be more drama as a reason for her coming at seattle cuz she IS board certified neo-natal surgeon! hehehe :):):)
and definetly more people are gonna watch greys when she is in it! that is a fact-it´s happening from the first episode she starred in :) LOVE GA ND PP
