Nurse Jackie: Season Seven Renewal from Showtime

Nurse Jackie season sevenThe sixth season of Nurse Jackie kicks off on Sunday, April 13th, at 9pm. However, Showtime isn’t making fans of the show wait that long to learn about the series’ fate. The cable channel has just renewed the Edie Falco series for a seventh season. Filming starts later this year.

Here are the details:


NEW YORK – March 31, 2014 – In advance of its sixth season premiere, today SHOWTIME announced that it has picked up a seventh season of its signature comedy series NURSE JACKIE. The announcement was made by David Nevins, President, Showtime Networks Inc. NURSE JACKIE stars Edie Falco in her Emmy(R) Award-winning and Golden Globe(R) and SAG-nominated role, and returns for a sixth season on Sunday, April 13 at 9 p.m. The seventh season of the series, which is a co-production of SHOWTIME and Lionsgate, will begin filming in New York later this year.

NURSE JACKIE’s fifth season averaged 3.13 million weekly viewers across platforms, up 14 percent year-over-year. Edie Falco stars as Jackie Peyton, a strong-willed and brilliant – but very flawed – emergency room nurse. In the sixth season, Jackie returns to the demons of her addiction. It is a daily high wire act with no net. She’s trying to cope with a real relationship (Adam Ferrara), an ex-husband (Dominic Fumusa), a daughter who is growing up way too fast (Ruby Jerins) and a sponsor who she can’t seem to shake (guest star Julie White). Something’s gotta give. NURSE JACKIE also stars Emmy Award winner Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Anna Deavere Smith, Stephen Wallem, Betty Gilpin, Mackenzie Aladjem and Peter Facinelli. Special guest star Morris Chestnut returns, and Laura Benanti and Michael Esper guest star. Emmy Award nominee Clyde Phillips serves as showrunner and executive producer. Tom Straw, Richie Jackson, Liz Flahive and Caryn Mandabach also executive produce.

What do you think? Are you glad that Nurse Jackie has been renewed? How long should this series continue?

    I am lucky enough to have found this remarkable and brilliant show, here in the UK. I love all the characters and the intertwined stories. Coop has evolved into one of the funniest doctors ever, and Akalitus is a magnificent example of a Health manager’s role. I enjoy watching especially Zoe, as she has provided a much-needed platform for discussion, with regards to Asperger Syndrome in females. I think Jackie also highlights the amount of professional stress is involved in her position in health, and similarly opens up stress related issues for those in other public services, and indeed the difficulties arising from trying to master work-life balance. The series is extremely enjoyable to watch, and I look forward to series 7 and beyond. Thank you Showcase.

    Nurse Jackie is the most laugh out loud comedy this season. I love the twist and turns of the very well written text. Jackie’s addiction plays off the quirky personalities of family and co-workers to a very believable plot. Keep up the good work!

    As it should!! Thank you SHOWTIME for continuing arguably the best half hour show on TV. It never even occurred to me it would not be renewed until I realized how long it has been on. However, the last scene of the last show (without giving it away) was exactly right and sets the show up for several more years of stories. Since I know real people living what she is going through, it is not only educational and relevant, but a critically comforting show to families and friends who know someone with her disease. Although the entertainment value is very high with NJ, I have fallen in love with her character and get why she does what she does (although I have made better choices – in case Mom reads this, had to say it :-). SHOWTIME could have dropped it with the excuse of sending it off on a high note (so to speak).

    A network willing to take chances and push a story with clearly many more stories left to tell shows me they actually have a brain (lacking in most networks!). So an honest, heartfelt thank you and kudos to SHOWTIME (and they have my majority of favorite shows, anyway) – thank you for the always brilliant Shameless, need MORE of Episodes, and Homeland which I am hoping will be as good as the first season in its third season.

    Nurse Jackie is one of my all time favorite shows, I do not have show time network but I buy this series every year when ever it comes out, I use to be one season behind, now I am two seasons behind meaning for me season four is where I need to pick up on with season five sitting next to season four but that’s okay since I do not have show time as a premium channel, that just more and longer time to have nurse Jackie in my
