Creator Shonda Rhimes has announced that the show “Private Practice” is set to come to an end after this season. The last season will be 13 episodes, and then everyone is set to go their separate ways.
“There was a lot of discussion and debate but, in the end, the guys at the network and the studio and I all decided that Private Practice was reaching its finish line,” Rhimes wrote. “Creatively, we are all extremely proud of the show and especially proud of this season — which you will all soon discover is a creative renaissance. I can’t wait for you to see it.”
Rhimes seemed sentimental when talking about the end of her show.
Rhimes added, “It’s heartbreaking to end. Truly. I feel so lucky to write for these characters and tell these stories and I truly feel this show has taught me so much as a writer. And there’s a family here, of crew and cast, people who have bonded over these past five and a half seasons. It’s rare for a show to go for more than 100 episodes and we are incredibly proud to have been such a show. And we’re grateful to all of you for spending time with us for an hour every week for the last 6 years. It’s meant the world.”
The star of the show, 56-year old Tim Daly, left back in May and Kate Walsh also announced that she was leaving after this season. This may have been the beginning of the end for the show.
The show started back in 2007 as a spin-off to the highly successful show, “Grey’s Anatomy.”
The diverse face on the show was actor Taye Diggs. Taye is best-known for his roles in the Broadway Musical “Rent,” as well as the film, “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.”
