Showtime remains addicted to Nurse Jackie: the cabler has renewed the Edie Falco-headlined dramedy for a sixth season.
Jackie is currently in the homestretch of Season 5, with the finale set to air June 16.
“Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season,” said network prez 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.”
Jackie is currently averaging 3.1 million weekly viewers across various platforms, a 10 percent uptick from Season 4.
