Though there had been some concern about the series getting renewed at Fox for another season, the network announced today they have picked up their long-running medical drama House for an eighth season. Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company says, “Over the past seven seasons, House has redefined the medical drama and has given us one of television’s most compelling and iconic characters. From the producers to the incredible writers to the unbelievably talented cast and crew, the House team is fearless in its creativity and I can’t wait to see what they have in store next year.”
In addition, for the returning cast, Deadline says both Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps have decided to return for the eighth season as well. Honestly, the end of this season has started to get a little outrageous, and part of me was hoping we might end the series sooner than later. Maybe this eighth season could be its last? We’ll have to wait and see.
