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.

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.

Best. News. Ever. I'm so glad she's returning. I'd love for Tm Daly and Chris Lowell to make an appearance even if it's in the form of a flashback or just appearing as a ghost for Betsy, while Pete is some kind of sub-conscious thing for Violet and tells her to move on or something. As for Naomi, hopefully her and Sam will rekindle! That'll be fantastic!


You mean the actress left so she could return to her beloved Broadway and get that sixth tony award.


This is great! Nai has been missed.
