One of the original cast members is leaving ABC’s medical drama "Private Practice," according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
Tim Daly, who played Pete Wilder for the show’s five seasons, won’t be returning to the series. At the end of the fifth season, the character was sent to jail after mercy-killing one of his patients, although he was later freed on bail, the story says.
The program had been considered a bubble show, but was renewed for a sixth season.
"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," Daly wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
