With 'Grey's Anatomy' still going fairly strong and Shonda Rhimes' other ABC drama 'Scandal' steadily picking up speed, there were bound to be casualties, particularly from the lowest rated of the bunch. And while we knew 'Private Practice' could come to an end when series lead Kate Walsh departs in episode 13, the show's creator has offically confirmed the news. Find out what Rhimes has to say about the cancellation inside!
It's going to take a serious miracle for ABC to opt for any additional episodes of the 'Grey's Anatomy' spin-off 'Private Practice' after its upcoming fall run. Not only did series boss Shonda Rhimes opt not to renew the contract of male lead Tim Daly, but now series anchor Kate Walsh herself is about to exit. Is there any hope for a renewal?
Brace yourself, 'Private Practice' fans. This may be the end. We've already endured a bit of heartache that 'Private Practice' would be losing its leading man Tim Daly for the sixth (and potentially) final thirteen-episode season, but now reports are swirling that the 'Grey's Anatomy' spin-off is definitely on its last legs. Will series lead Kate Walsh stick with the show after seven years as Dr. Addison Montgomery, as it heads into its next run of episodes?
ABC's 'Grey's Anatomy' spin-off series 'Private Practice' has always had a bit of trouble moving forward in the ratings, and with its upcoming sixth season likely to be the last, there's a bit more bad news for fans of the Shonda Rhimes series. Season five left lead character Pete Wilder in a rather sticky situation behind bars, but what will become of the character next season, and how will the latest behind-the scenes turmoil affect the show?
