Bad news, Private Practice fans! Star Kate Walsh (Addison Montgomery) has confirmed that Private Practice Season 6 is her last season — even if the show itself goes on.

Kate confirmed the news while appearing on former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel's new talk show, Bethenny.

"This is my last season of Private Practice," Kate said. "It’s been an incredible journey and an amazing ride … and I feel incredibly grateful to Shonda Rhimes and all the fans that have been there from day one 'til now."

Kate's contract is up after the first 13 episodes of the new season. Do you think the show can or should do on without her? Let us know in the comments!

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
