Winter TV Preview: Private Practice

Private Practice, ABC
Returns Tuesday, January 8 at 10/9c

Sadly it’s the end of the road for ABC’s medical drama Private Practice. The hunky Benjamin Bratt will be hanging up his scrubs when the show ends its six-season run this winter. But not before we reportedly see the half-Peruvian American actor’s character, Dr. Jake Reilly, give Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) a white wedding. “Shonda [Rimes] had hinted and indicated that that‘s probably where it would go and I knew that she’d deliver and make it an amazing episode,” star Walsh told The Hollywood Reporter of the show creator’s finale plans. “It was clear she wanted to give Addison her happy ending. After all Addison has suffered and struggled with throughout the series — all the heartache and hardship — Shonda really wanted to have her find a meaningful relationship and she got to have her child and find a guy that was her match.”
