Private Practice‘s current season will be its last.
Creator Shonda Rhimes made the announcement today, saying that the decision to make the 13-episode sixth season the show’s last came after “a lot of discussion and debate.”
Her full statement is below.
Star Kate Walsh had previously made it clear that she would be done with the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off after this season, but told EW last month that she thought the show could go on without her. Additionally, she left the door open for a return to either Grey’s Anatomy or Practice, should the latter continue in her absence. “That’s Shonda’s decision really. I wouldn’t want to do it all of the time but I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to it either especially if a good storyline came up that needed [Addison],” she had said.
