Edie Falco will be returning to her Emmy-award winning role as emergency room nurse Jackie Peyton on Showtime’s critically-acclaimed dark comedy series Nurse Jackie.
The unconventional but brilliant titular nurse will be back for a sixth season in 2014. Season 6 begins shooting this fall.
The premium cable show typically ranks well, with about 3 million viewers per episode, and has shown a ten-percent growth from seasons 4 to 5. Showrunner Clyde Phillips, who took over following season 4 and previously worked on Dexter, is also the show’s executive producer and will be back for season 6. In addition to Falco, Nurse Jackie stars Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, and Peter Facinelli.
The fifth season finale airs June 16.
