Nurse Jackie renewed for sixth season
Story by Jack Foley
NURSE Jackie has been renewed for a sixth season.
The Edie Falco star vehicle has consistently been a solid performer for Showtime, both in terms of audience figures and critical acclaim. Falco has earned three Emmy nominations and one win for her title role as the drug-addicted (and now in recovery) Jackie Payton.
Announcing the decision, Showtime Entertainment president David Nevins said: “Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season.
“Under the new leadership of [showrunner] Clyde Phillips, and with an amazing cast led by Edie Falco, this show is as sharp and compelling and entertaining as ever. I’m excited to get to see the next chapter in Jackie’s life.”
Other Showtime comedies to have been renewed include Californication, Web Therapy and House of Lies.
