Kate Walsh has confirmed speculation she is leaving Private Practice after Season 6.
“This is my last season for Private Practice,” she said. “It’s been an incredible journey an amazing ride. I’m hugely, hugely grateful.”
The character of Addison Montgomery already had many years in on Grey’s Anatomy before her own spinoff.
“It’s been a long time being Addison. I feel incredibly grateful to Shonda Rhimes and all the fans that have been there from day one to now. I’m really excited about the last season.”
Private Practice is returning for at least 13 episodes of Season 6 but Tim Daly is not returning to the series due to budget cuts.
“We need to make sure the show is viable and that we can produce it. I feel as though Tim’s character had a wonderful journey,” said creator Shonda Rhimes.
