Remember how ABC’s Private Practice left off in May, with Pete getting arrested for the “murder” of a dying patient?
And remember how it was reported just weeks after that finale that Tim Daly would not be returning to the role of Pete come Season 6?
Yeah… that leaves the medical drama to do some fancy footwork as it enters its upcoming at-least-13-episodes run, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 25.
In this preview clip from the season opener, you’ll see that while Pete may be out of sight, he’s definitely very much on everyone’s mind — especially that of his in-denial sweetheart Violet. (As Amy Brenneman shared with TVLine, it’s “a brave new world” ahead for Violet and son Lucas as the new season unspools.)
