Kate Walsh Eyes Private Practice Exit — Could the Show Go On Without Her?

If Private Practice carries on beyond next season it will likely do so without leading lady Kate Walsh.

The actress plans to depart the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff at the conclusion of the just-ordered 13-episode sixth season, our sister site Deadline reports.

It’s not clear if ABC and series creator Shonda Rhimes would keep the show going sans Walsh, but network execs stopped short of declaring the forthcoming season the show’s last.

The news comes just days after Walsh’s co-star, Tim Daly, announced on Twitter that he would not be returning in the fall.
