You’ll be able to follow the life of Jackie Peyton and her All Saints crew for at least another season, as Showtime has announced the renewal of Nurse Jackie for a 6th season.
The 5th season of the show is currently airing, and the season finale will debut on June 16th.
“Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season,” said Showtime President of Entertainment David Nevins. “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 decision was aided by strong ratings numbers for the series. According to Showtime, Nurse Jackie season 5 currently averages 3.1 million weekly viewers across all platforms – that’s 10% more than it received last season.
