Dark hospital-set drama Nurse Jackie has been prescribed another series by American network Showtime. 


The dramedy, which follows troubled A&E nurse Jackie Peyton (played by Edie Falco) as she juggles her job with her challenging personal life, will be returning for a sixth season.

Showtime Entertainment president David Nevins said of the recommission: “Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season… [The] 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 Emmy award-winning show airs in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
