House Renewed For 8th Season, Will Probably Be The Last

Despite rampant rumors on the web this week that Fox’s long running medical drama HOUSE would be canceled the network confirmed on Wednesday that an 8th season is on the way, more than likely the shows last.

The series, hurt by lower than normal ratings is limping along (although it’s still one of my favorites) and show star Hugh Laurie confirmed that the shows last days are nearing, during a Radio Times interview Laurie said:

“The end of [the eighth] season, right now, looks like the end of the show. That is as far as they have got me for [under contract].”

Also already signed on for the last season are Robert Sean Leonard (Wilson), Omar Epps (Foreman) and Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy)

Series creator David Shore will also stick by the show’s side, watching it sign off into syndication.
