"Nurse Jackie's" Edie Falco

Jackie may now be clean and officially divorced, but that doesn't mean her life is any less complicated on Showtime's Nurse Jackie.

In the newly released trailer for the upcoming fifth season of the Showtime dramedy, Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) is back barking orders as All Saints bulks up its staff with the arrival of a handsome Army doc named Ike (Morris Chestnut) who takes over as chief of the ER and the preppy Dr. Carrie Roman (Betty Gilpin) -- who immediately catches the eye (and a handful) of Dr. Coop.

Elsewhere, Jackie (Edie Falco) sparks up a potential new romance with the cop who responds to her car accident seemingly moments after her divorce is finalized. In a shocker, she fully discloses who she really is -- an overworked, recently divorced mother of two and a recovering drug addict -- during their first potential date.

Amid all the changes this season, it's the return of Bobby Cannavale's contentious Mike Cruz that piques our interest the most -- is he back for more than just one episode? One can only hope.

Check out the season five trailer, below, and hit the comments with your thoughts. Nurse Jackie returns April 14 at 9 p.m. on Showtime under new showrunner Clyde Phillips.
