'Nurse Jackie' to End After Season 7
It's official: Showtime's Nurse Jackie's end is in sight.
Showtime announced Wednesday that the upcoming seventh season of the Edie Falco dramedy would be its last.
"#NurseJackie is working one last shift! Join us in celebrating and bidding farewell to the 7th & FINAL season in 2015," the cabler tweeted.
The series has become one of Showtime's signature shows and a critical darling. The show has garnered Emmys, a Humanitas Prize, an AFI Award and several Prism awards for its depiction of substance abuse. Falco is the only actress to ever win lead acting Emmys in drama (The Sopranos) and comedy (Nurse Jackie).
The series, from Lionsgate Television, earned an early renewal in March ahead of its sixth-season premiere. Its final season becomes the first without co-star Peter Facinelli as a series regular. The actor may still appear in some capacity but will be a regular on NBC drama Odyssey.
Season seven will feature Emmy darling Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as a new ER doc.
