Alas, Addison fans, it sounds like Kate Walsh is ready to hang up her lab coat once she films the remaining 13 episodes of Private Practice in her contract.

According to Deadline, Kate was hesitant to return for a sixth season, but she agreed to do 13 more episodes after “intense negotiations.” Once she's done with them, she reportedly hopes to move on to other projects. Since Season 6 itself was only renewed for 13 episodes, ABC would have to decide whether or not they’d continue the series without her.

The show already lost Tim Daly (Pete), so do you think it could stand the loss of Kate too? Sound off in our poll below!
