Showtime announced that after seven seasons, Nurse Jackie will end.

The news was announced on Wednesday via Twitter with the cast at the table read for season 7.

"Edie is one of our finest actresses. We are so honored to have had her on the network. She creates indelible characters and Nurse Jackie Peyton is no exception. I know this final season will bring her story to a close that will satisfy the ever-growing number of loyal viewers who have been entranced and, at times, appalled by Jackie through the years. I want to thank Edie, the incredible cast of Nurse Jackie and Clyde Phillips and Richie Jackson who have led the show to the success that it is today."

David Nevins, Showtime President, said in a statement.

Showtime had renewed the series back in March before Season 6 had finished airing and was announced that Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub will join the cast as ER doctor Bernard Prince, while original cast member Peter Facinelli will no longer be apart of the show.

The final season of Nurse Jackie will air sometime next year.

Falco, due to her work on Nurse Jackie, has become the only actress to win Emmys in both the lead drama and lead comedy categories and the show also led Merritt Wever to win Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy in 2013.
