Private Practice Season 6 Shocker: Who's Out?

by at . Comments

A key Private Practice cast member won't be scrubbing in for Season 6.

Sadly for many fans of the ABC drama, Tim Daly Tweeted last night that his character has performed his last risky medical procedure, writing: 

“Wonderful fans of PPP. Shonda informed my agent today that Pete won’t be returning for season 6. It was a great 5 yrs. R.I.P. Pete Wilder.”

Hmmm...

Pete was last seen on the Private Practice Season 5 finale, taken into custody after ending the life of a patient kept alive by machines.

The departure of Daly is likely financially-based, as the show itself was among the final ABC renewals for 2012-2013. It is scheduled to air 13 episodes in what most assume will be its final season.

Are you sad to see Daly/Pete go?

I miss Naomi, is she coming back, the show doesn't seem the same without her. Also, I hope her and Sam get back together because to me they have a lot of chemistry. Naomi or the actress Audra is outstanding, so the show doesn't feel the same.

Private Practice IS and always has been LUDICROUS in terms of story line and limp acting except for Ka Dee and Audra. Time to end all of their misery. And that SCORSONE is positively repulsive.
