The ABC drama “Private Practice” will end a successful six-season run after star Kate Walsh leaves.

Creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes released the following statement, “I’m sad to say that ‘Private Practice’s’ run will end after episode 613 this season. 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.”

Walsh announced last summer that she would be leaving the series after fulfilling her 13-episode commitment for the current season. According to the show’s ABC schedule, this would mean the series finale would air sometime in January.

One thing Walsh hasn’t ruled out is a return to the place that started it all, “Grey’s Anatomy.” The actress confessed, “That’s Shonda’s decision, really. I wouldn’t want to do it all of the time but I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to it either, especially if a good storyline came up that needed her.”
