You wouldn’t necessarily want to have her take care of you or your loved ones but lots of people still like to watch nurse Jackie Peyton. As a result, Showtime has renewed Nurse Jackie for a fourth season.
Starring Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie began airing in June of 2009 and revolves around an emergency room nurse who’s juggling patients, doctors, other nurses, family responsibilities, and a list of indiscretions. Others in the cast include Eve Best, Haaz Sleiman, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, and Peter Facinelli.
So far this season, Nurse Jackie is averaging about 2.8 million viewers. Only about 750,000 watch on Monday nights with more than 70% catching it via On Demand. That’s a big difference from fellow Monday night series United States of Tara. That’s just been cancelled after three seasons.
There are eight episodes left in the current season of Jackie. The season finale airs on June 20th. There’s no word on when season four will debut but the last two seasons have kicked off in late March.
What do you think? Do you like the series? Are you glad that Nurse Jackie will be back for a fourth season?

Np. She was Jackie O’ Hurley for like 2 episodes. Then she became Jackie Peyton!
Yeah! Love Nurse Jackie, so glad it’s coming back for a 4th season!
Jackie O’ Hurley? that’s not her name. Her name is Jackie Peyton!
Beth » Thanks for the catch. I haven’t seen much of the show and apparently her name was originally going to be O’Hurley (per press materials).
**** Jackie, I want Tara back! Dammit! Showtime sucks now.
