Tv Season Info

The sixth and final series of the "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off finds Addison (Kate Walsh) trying to make a go of it with Jake (Benjamin Bratt) after turning down a marriage proposal from Sam (Taye Diggs). Things between Addison and Jake move fast and soon they are living together and talking about tying the knot. Their relationship is tested, however, when a social worker expresses reservations about letting Addison adopt Henry if Jake, who has an arrest in his past, remains in the picture. Meanwhile, Sam rebounds from Addy quite nicely with a nurse named Stephanie (Justina Machado). Sam also makes a pilot for a reality series about his life as a heart surgeon, and during the filming his mother Dee (Alfre Woodard) arrives for a visit and drops a major bombshell. Violet (Amy Brenneman) struggles to cope with being a single mom to Lucas asks best friend Cooper (Paul Adelstein) to be Lucas's caretaker if anything should happen to her. Meanwhile, Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) is shocked to discover that she and Cooper are expecting triplets. With the impending arrival of three little "Cooplets," Charlotte is under the gun to fill Pete's shoes in the ER. She hires James Peterson (Matt Long), who strikes up a flirtation with Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) just as she reenters the dating scene with a year of sobriety under her belt. As the series progresses, it's revealed that Sheldon (Brian Benben) is keeping a secret from his colleagues. Also weighing heavily on the good shrink is the possibility that someone he's counseling snatched a young girl from the hospital. It's not all bad, though, when he meets a fellow cancer patient named Miranda (Diane Farr) and they become more than just acquaintances.

Critic Reviews for Private Practice Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

But in the end, they were always meant to be. It seemed only fitting that they would walk down the aisle and eventually have another child together, despite the fact that Sam was against more children.

If you thought ABC's Private Practice would go off gently into the night with its Tuesday series finale, you underestimated Shonda Rhimes.

"Aftershock" [the season premiere] was a group-centric episode and the perfect way to explore those kind of days when everything seems to be changing.

Sep 25, 2012 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I'm surprised-but should not have been, given Rhimes' proven skill-to find that Private Practice ends remarkably well, with a flourish of its own melodramatic style

Looks like Amelia's request that Sheldon be around for a long time might be put to the test.
