Nurse Jackie has been renewed by Showtime for a sixth season. 'Nurse Jackie' stars Edie Falco, who already has one Emmy for the show.
Falco follows nurse Jackie Peyton, who works in a hospital in New York and struggles with personal problems. Other stars on the show include “Twilight” actor Peter Facinelli and Merritt Wever.
“’Nurse Jackie' is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series' growth in its fifth season," president of entertainment for Showtime David Nevins said 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.”
