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.  Creatively, we are all extremely proud of the show and especially proud of this season -- which you will all soon discover is a creative renaissance.   I can't wait for you to see it.

It's heartbreaking to end.  Truly.  I feel so lucky to write for these characters and tell these stories and I truly feel this show has taught me so much as a writer.  And there's a family here, of crew and cast, people who have bonded over these past five and a half seasons.  It's rare for a show to go for more than 100 episodes and we are incredibly proud to have been such a show.  And we're grateful to all of you for spending time with us for an hour every week for the last 6 years.  It's meant the world.

Thank you.
