Will Kate Walsh Return to Grey's Anatomy?

by at . Comments

Kate Walsh is leaving Private Practice after Season 6. This we know.

Addison Montgomery hasn't necessarily left the building, however.

Walsh could always show up on Grey's Anatomy, which she's open to: "There's always that possibility," she told E! at Entertainment Weekly's pre-Emmy party in West Hollywood. "It's really up to Shonda [Rhimes]."

That Look

"Of course I'd want to do it. I'm open to anything. I'm ready for my next chapter, but never close the door ... I'm going to rest, I'm going to travel and work hopefully on other stuff and spend time with my family and friends."

Walsh announced in June that she would leave Private Practice after this season.

"It's been an incredible journey and an amazing ride and I'm hugely, hugely grateful," the 44-year-old redhead said. "It's bittersweet. It's a huge chapter of my life. It's been eight years."

Walsh can currently be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the movie adaptation of the teen-angst novel of the same name, as the mom to The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev and Logan Lerman.

While the coming, 13-episode season of Private Practice may be its last, it's doubtful Grey's Anatomy will bow out after the show's ninth season, offering Walsh plenty of chances to return to Seattle Grace.

I think on Grey's Anatomy they have been writing off so many characters that they need to have Addison back in the picture.

I think she needs to come back for Marks funeral at least.

Addison is just an OBGYN, she's also a neonatal surgeon; one of the country's best. Sure a peds surgeon is capable of operating on a newborn, but Addison is specifically trained to operate on babies - she is, as she says, world-class. You can get decent OBGYNs, but Addie is on a level on her own. She's an OBGYN/perinatologist/neonatal-perinatal surgeon and a medical geneticist! Even Lucy Fields had to step aside when they called in Addie to save Sophia.

I would love to see Addison back at Seattle Grace but what's all this talk about her getting back with Derek? C'mon guys Grey's Anatomy isn't a cheesy soap opera and Meredith and Derek have finally got a good solid thing going with their marriage finally being official and having Zola!!! :)

Well apparently if she joins GA she wont get with Mark, since he is leaving the show.....so sad!!!

Yes! Yes! YES!
It will be a refreshing change to see Meredith be serious with someone different. Get McDreamy and Addison back together.

Avatar

Yes, of course!
Honestly, I was wishing that Private Practice's ratings would drop so that they would cancel the show so Kate could go back in Grey's.
Sorry.
