Addison Montgomery is back in Seattle and it sure made fans of Grey’s Anatomy, at the start of season 18. It must be said that it was long overdue:

Fans of the franchise will also learn more about Addison’s life, a few years after the finale of Private Practice. Where are her husband and her son? “They’re still married… You’re going to learn a little bit more about Addison’s backstory, if you will, with Jake and Henry, especially COVID and what she’s been through.
