‘Nurse Jackie’ Season 6 Announced

Nurse Jackie won’t be checking out anytime soon. Showtime announced today that the Edie Falco led comedy has been renewed for a sixth season set to premiere in 2014.

Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. in a statement. “Under the new leadership of 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.”

The renewal comes as no surprise; season five, which is currently airing Sundays at 9:00, has seen its ratings tick up ten percent over the previous season.

Nurse Jackie‘s season five finale will air Sunday, June 16th at 9PM ET/PT on Showtime.
