Private Practice Kate WalshAttention Seaside Wellness patients: You’re going to want to book those appointments by Jan. 22, 2013.

That’s the date ABC will air the final episode of Shonda Rhimes’ Private Practice, TVLine has confirmed.

The episode, titled “In Which We Say Goodbye,” will bring the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off to an end after six seasons.

As previously reported, original cast member Audra McDonald will return for the last episode — which also likely will serve as an uplifting swan song for Kate Walsh’s series lead, Addison.

“The character deserves a happy ending,” Rhimes told TVLine in August. “We’ve watched Addison from the beginning. She started out as one of the most hated characters on Grey’s Anatomy and has grown to be this person that we really love. That character’s journey, I think, deserves a happy ending.”
