Attention: Private Practice fans! Shondaland boss and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes said on Good Morning America recently that she would love to bring Private Practice back. The popular Grey’s spinoff focused on Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and her colleagues at a medical practice in Los Angeles, California.
ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy offshoot, which transplanted Kate Walsh’s doc from Seattle to L.A., ran for six seasons on ABC, from 2007-2013 (read our recap of the series finale here). The OG ensemble also included Tim Daly, Audra McDonald, Paul Adelstein, KaDee Strickland, Chris Lowell, Taye Diggs and Amy Brenneman.
“I actually feel like we didn’t finish telling our stories on Private Practice,” Rhimes told GMA. “We had so many more stories we could tell. I just felt like we had so much more to say with those characters and so much further to go, and that also felt like a show that had endless possibility.”
Indeed, fan votes suggest that ABC canceled Private Practice (or, at least, announced that its sixth season would be its last) right as the going got especially good. Of IMDb voters’ picks for the 10 best Private Practice episodes, all are from the third season or later, and three are from the final five episodes of the show.
