Kate Walsh to Exit Private Practice After Season 6

by at . Comments

ABC is yet to announce that the 13-episode sixth season of Private Practice will be the show's last, but it's sure beginning to look that way.

Just days after Tim Daly confirmed he would not be returning to the ABC drama, Deadline now reports that star Kate Walsh is also on her way out. She'll exit the series after these 13 episodes are over.

It's been known for some time that Walsh was interested in pursuing other avenues, considering she's played the character of Addison Montgomery for seven years when you account for her time on Grey's Anatomy.

But without ABC or Shonda Rhimes revealing whether the show will fold up without its lead, the question now must be asked: Should it? Should Private Practice go on without Kate Walsh?

This should be PP's last season. Have it end on a high note Shonda, and with all of the original characters (well most). For this season, I would love to see Addison get back to her fabulous yet adorably awkward ways. Remember the first season of PP when the pilot started in a crossover in Grey's? She was so funny!! This show needs more of that, which is why I think the ratings dropped so low. While this past season was it's best season yet, the drama of it all got a little melo-dramatic and anti climatic. The constant back and forth with Sam is getting old, as well as the Violet and Pete thing (thank God that's over.) Get back to the roots and end it well!

To continue my thought... A NEW show with Charolette and Cooper (and Mason) relocating to Charolette's southern roots and running a medical facility there.

I would actually like to see Shonda create a NEW show around Charlotte and Cooper.

The show needs to end with all the originals. I don't want to watch without Kate Walsh. Addison is the center of the show. She keeps it together.

Kate is Private Practice! Shonda could not in all her genius develop another character that could match Addison. Nor is there another actress that could carry a show like Kate. Yep, it's over after S6! I wouldn't watch without Kate. The others are good but not in the same way. There have been some amazing storylines in past seasons but Kate has delivered in all and any aspect. She is amazing! I wish her the best and hopefully we see her in some great roles.
