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.”
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?
