Kate Walsh to Exit Private Practice After Season 6

by at . Comments

ABC is yet to announce that the 13-episode sixth season of Private Practice will be the show's last, but it's sure beginning to look that way.

Just days after Tim Daly confirmed he would not be returning to the ABC drama, Deadline now reports that star Kate Walsh is also on her way out. She'll exit the series after these 13 episodes are over.

It's been known for some time that Walsh was interested in pursuing other avenues, considering she's played the character of Addison Montgomery for seven years when you account for her time on Grey's Anatomy.

But without ABC or Shonda Rhimes revealing whether the show will fold up without its lead, the question now must be asked: Should it? Should Private Practice go on without Kate Walsh?

I love the character of addison but i think the show might actually be better without her, because where the story lines have taken it. plus id love kate walsh who plays the character and i would enjoy seeing her play someone else. besides im sure with the final 2 seasons of greys coming up she will guest star on a few episodes as addison.

I wish she'd go back to Grey's. Addison is the only person that should ever get with Sloane now that little Grey is dead

i think as long as Amelia, Charlotte, Cooper, Sam, and Violet are still there the show can go on. obviously i'll miss seeing Addison since she's been one of my favorite characters for seven years but i don't want to see it end just because she leaves. i love Amelia, Cooper and Charlotte way too much to see them go. if they started a new show with those three (and mason of course) i would be perfectly happy

In order for Practice to continue, it would need to shift the focus to Amelia. Most became fans of Practice because of Grey's and that would keep the tie to the original show alive. And allow for crossovers more easily. Plus, if Amelia's there is a lot more room for growth in the show. CharCoop are great, but they are at a really settled point in their storyline. Either way Addison will be severely missed - both on Private Practice and on Grey's!!!!!

you know what i would really like to see.....
i don't follow private practice, but i do love grey's. it wouldn't be the first time addison up and move her whole life, maybe she's sick of cali...she hears about the crash and everything bad happening at seattle grace so she swoops in to help the hospital as a favor and takes care of mark after the loss of lexie not necessarly as a lover or gf but shes the only one mark ever tryed to love other than lexi and mark will need it. i always loved mark callie addison friendship it was so comical and sweet its almost as if heyre a whole separate team from mer cristina derek etc. alex and addy always had thing to though

Like the others who have said it, continue the show and focus are Charlotte and Cooper, they are the most interesting and inspiring part of the show anyway!

ER went on without George Clooney for many years, but I can't see the same happening with Private Practice. It is probably best to wrap it up, giving Addie a happy ending with a baby.

No! Its pointless!

Private Practice Quotes

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.

Charlotte

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.
