Private Practice Scoop: Look Who's Returning!

by at . Comments

A very familiar face will make an appearance on Private Practice Season 6 before this ABC drama says goodbye.

TV Guide has confirmed that Audra McDonald will reprise the role of Naomi Bennett on the upcoming series finale. The best friend of Addison and ex-husband of Sam moved to New York near the end of Season 4.

In real life, the actress also departed for The Big Apple in order to be closer to her family.

Taye Diggs, Audra McDonald

No word yet on what brings Naomi back into the Seaside Wellness picture. A reunion of some kind? A wedding? A funeral?

Take your best guess now.

I enjoy Na as an actress but was not fond of the sometimes moody neediness that she portrayed. I do not want Addison with Sam. The relationship crossed a line that should not have crossed but her being a girl...***** un em (clearing my throat) allowed her to lose her faculties for a few minutes in order to believe that it was alright even though it wasn't. I like her with Jake. There is a balance there. Like he told her I am NOT running and that is what she needs. Someone that is going to hold on and allow her to be. If there has too be a series finale, I would like for it to consist of as Jake put it "having given her a baby" and now she will commit to him the way that they both deserve.

I just made a comment and I stated why not bring Naomi back and she is coming back for a show or two. Why not permanent and keep the show going. ABC PLEASE RECONSIDER your decision. I think the show can make it beef it up a bit and bring some characters back and introduce new ones. Life changes and people come and go from our lives.

YAYY!! The show hasn't been the same without Naomi there. I'm so happy Shonda decided to end the show on the right note.

I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but I was never fond of Naomi and was thrilled when she left. She is a fine actress, but I can't stand the character so I do hope that her presence is mostly unnoticeable.

She is definitely coming for Addie and Jake's wedding.

if Charlotte is going to have a baby naomi is going to want to see it with her own eyes.
