Lionsgate TV half-hour starring Edie Falco has seen ratings momentum this year
The half-hour dramedy about an ER nurse with addiction problems has been renewed for a sixth season by the pay cabler, which co-produces the series with Liongate TV.
“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,” Showtime entertainment prexy David Nevins said.
Per Showtime, “Nurse Jackie” has averaged 3.1 million viewers a week across all of its linear and VOD plays. That marks a 10% gain from season four.
