Boo. I say again. Boo.

Jay-Jay - a 'spinoff' is a tv show based on character(s) and/or a plot line from another (usually VERY successful) show. So, in this case, Kate Walsh would continue to play Addison, but she would probably be in another hospital with a totally new cast of characters.

This has been done in the past, but the chances of success aren't guaranteed. Sometimes it works ("Frasier" as a spinoff from "Cheers") and sometimes it's a terrible flop ("Joey" from "Friends" - how many shows did THAT last...).

Hope this helps...

and like someone else said, if it bombs, she can always come back!

the more i think about it i don't think it's a half bad idea. honestly grey's first season was without addison and they did just fine. and if any one of the doctors can pull this off i think it would be addison. i really like her as a character and kate walsh is a great actress with a lot of comedic talent. if they put a few interesting ppl with her it really might be okay.

i really hope this isnt true. i love addison and what she contributes to the greys cast. without her..i dont know. im obviously still going to watch greys, and i might even watch the spinoff because i love addison, but still. i agree with a lot of people here: if it aint broke, dont fix it.

i seriously hope this is a rumor. a horrible, HORRIBLE rumor.

this is a total fuck up if you ask me..looks like shonda is getting the big head. this will fail and we will lose addie for no reason. Why replace addie for this new woman...she is not near as gorgeous as Addison btw...im totally pissed...

one word- Joey.

Take it as you wish, thats my thoughts on this particular subject.

it would be hard to create a spinoff on greys because greys is sooooooo unique. they would be too close in plot it just wouldn't work. There is an upside to this however- Greys fans would be able to basically watch *two* new episodes a week!!! that would be amazing!!! Maybe they could call it "Addisons Anatomy" or "Sorting Out All the Mc's In Your McLife".

I love her she is the most beautiful woman on the show she's great. Hate to see her go I hope the spinoff is worth losing her on GA.

I just hope that if it doesn't work out, they will absolutely put Kate Walsh back on Grey's. It would be tragic to lose her character. I think I could get on board with the spin-off if we were guaranteed to have Addison Montogmery in our lives, in one form or another.
