Private Practice Season 6: No Rules, No Holds Barred!

by at . Comments

Despite the impending departure of Kate Walsh, it's unclear if Private Practice will bow out after its 13-episode sixth season.

But creator Shonda Rhimes has made one thing clear in a new interview: the drama will be doing all out this fall!

One Happy Addison

"The writers and I have approached this season as a no-holds-barred, all bets off season," the uber producer tells William Keck of TV Guide magazine.

Meaning what, exactly?

Rhimes teases that time will have "no meaning," stories will "overlap one another" and everyone will have a "point of view" on Season 6. Sounds vague, confusing and intriguing, no?

"Any episodes we've ever wanted to do we're doing," says Rhimes. "Any idea we ever had we're playing. Every single episode will be a special episode and none will seem like your typical episode of Private Practice. No two will even seem alike. It's really freeing and the actors are really energized."

The series returns on Tuesday, September 25. Do you think Private Practice should go on without Kate Walsh?

    I'm both nervous and excited for how these 13 episodes are going to be but I really hope they won't ruin the quality of the show. As for a world of Private Practice without Addison Montgomery, it would be really different. But if Charlotte and Cooper are there, I'm still in it!

    I'm sad KW is leaving! but her character got to a conclusion! and to mess with "her" life just so we can watch wouldn't be funny anymore! It would be good to bring in Sheldon's ex as a Main and make her the star and involve her in a triangle with Amelia and Sheldon, and after them hook up give her a story! :D

    I believe that this show is Addison's show and that without her it wouldn't really make sense anymore. However! This show still has a lot of potential with remaining couples and their futures. I would like to see ABC back-order it for 9 episodes to see how the show could go without Kate Walsh. If it were not to succeed, pull it out with notice in order to have Kate Walsh, Tim Daly and Audra McDonald to appear in the series finale.
    I'm just curious though, if Kate goes, does that mean Taye or Benjamin are being written out to go without pending on her characters decision? If so, could Tim Daly be put back on the show? So many burning questions.

    I think that if they have to carry on without Addie, it won't be the worse thing. Charlotte, Amelia and Cooper could carry the show. Plus is Addie chooses between Sam and Jake, the looser would still need to find love. I can't wait to see what happens.

    She better give Addison a great season. No, I will be done with PP at the same time Kate is done.
