LISA Edelstein, aka Dr Lisa Cuddy in House, could return to the show if Season 8 proves to be its last.

Executive producer Greg Yaitanes told TV Line that the actress – who quit her role as the hospital chief and former House love interest at the end of season 7 – would be asked back if the current season turns out to be the show’s last.

Although he did stress that no decision has yet been taken on whether House will be picked up for a ninth run, particularly as the show’s production costs and slowly dwindling viewing figures have previously been cited as concerns.

“If it’s not the end, I don’t think [a return for Cuddy will] happen,” added Yaitanes. “But that’s just my personal opinion.”
