Private Practice Season 6 Promo: One Decision. Three Lives.

No pressure, Addison Montgomery, but you have a decision to make. And it will alter the course of three lives. So teases the short/intriguing promo for Private Practice Season 6, which we know will be the last for Kate Walsh and which may very well be the last for the ABC drama in general. As a result, Shonda Rhimes has already teased new episodes as unlike any other in show history, with no rules and no holds barred . We're not sure what that means. But we'll be tuning in September 25 to find out. Watch the first Season 6 promo now:

Private Practice to Give Addison Which "Happy Ending?"

On September 25, Private Practice will kick off its sixth and possibly final season. But while the fate of this ABC drama is unknown, the future of its main attraction was made clear in May: Kate Walsh will depart the series after its subsequent 13 episodes. How will Addison be written out? Shonda Rhimes told TV Line during a recent set visit that she changes her mind on a weekly basis, but the "character deserves a happy ending" of some kind.

Private Practice Season 6: No Rules, No Holds Barred!

Despite the impending departure of Kate Walsh , it's unclear if Private Practice will bow out after its 13-episode sixth season. But creator Shonda Rhimes has made one thing clear in a new interview: the drama will be doing all out this fall! "The writers and I have approached this season as a no-holds-barred, all bets off season," the uber producer tells William Keck of TV Guide magazine. Meaning what, exactly? Rhimes teases that time will have "no meaning," stories will "overlap one another" and everyone will have a "point of view" on Season 6. Sounds vague, confusing and intriguing, no? "Any episodes we've ever wanted to do we're doing," says Rhimes. "Any idea we ever had we're playing. Every single episode will be a special episode and none will seem like your typical episode of Private Practice . No two will even seem alike. It's really freeing and the actors are really energized." The series returns on Tuesday, September 25. Do you think Private Practice should go on without Kate Walsh?

'Private Practice' star Paul Adelstein dishes on the Season 5 finale

Thank goodness "Private Practice" is officially coming back for a sixth season, because star Paul Adelstein tells Zap2it that the Season 5 finale, airing Tuesday, May 15 at 10 p.m. on ABC, is filled with multiple cliffhangers. " I don't think there's a lot of closure built into that finale," he admits. "There's a lot of stuff going on."Obviously, a lot of the storyline will revolve around Amelia and what's going on with her baby (it's developing without a brain, and she decided to carry it to term and donate its organs to help other infants). At the beginning of the episode, everyone will find out. "There are very mixed opinions and very passionate opinions on both sides of that debate," Adelstein says. "Cooper feels pretty strongly that as horrible as it is, the opportunity to help save so many other children is worth it. Which is to a certain degree dispassionate. It's a professional...
