Tim Daly who plays Pete Wilder on Private Practice announced on Tuesday that Shonda Rhimes has not picked up his contract option for the ABC drama’s upcoming sixth (and likely final) season. In a post on his twitter page Daly explained, “Wonderful fans of PPP. Shonda informed my agent today that Pete wont be returning for season 6. It was a great 5 yrs. R.I.P. Pete Wilder.” I guess it’s not too much of a shocker. In the season finale, Pete was jailed for compassionately ending the life of a patient kept alive by machines. Personally I would’ve much rather seen Violet go. What do you Private Practice fans think about this?
