Showtime Sets 'Nurse Jackie’s' Final Season

Showtime will pull the curtain on its medical-based scripted series Nurse Jackie after the show’s seventh season, the network said Wednesday.

The series, which launched in 2009 and starred Edie Falco, will begin production this week on its seventh and final season, which will debut next year. The series averaged 3.4 million weekly viewers across all platforms in its sixth season.

Diring its run, the series also garnered several Emmy Awards, including multiple Best comedy actress wins for Falco.

"Edie is one of our finest actresses,” said David Nevins, president of Showtime in a statement. “We are so honored to have had her on the network. She creates indelible characters and Nurse Jackie Peyton is no exception.  I know this final season will bring her story to a close that will satisfy the ever-growing number of loyal viewers who have been entranced and, at times, appalled by Jackie through the years. I want to thank Edie, the incredible cast of Nurse Jackie and Clyde Phillips and Richie Jackson who have led the show to the success that it is today.”
