The decision to renew the comedy ahead of its season-six premiere is a rare move for Showtime, which typically waits until the new run of episodes is underway to pull the trigger. No decision has been made on whether season seven will be Nurse Jackie‘s last.
For Showtime, Nurse Jackie anchors a comedy lineup that also includes Episodes, Shameless and House of Lies — all of which have been renewed for next year — as well as Web Therapy. Comedy Californication will end its run with season seven this year. The future for comedy Happyish remains unclear following star Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s death.
