Showtime announced today that the upcoming seventh season of Nurse Jackie will be its last. On the air since 2009, the award-winning dramedy will leave as one of the network's highest-rated comedies, having averaged 3.4 million weekly viewers across platforms in Season 6.

“Edie is one of our finest actresses,” said Showtime President, David Nevins. “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.”

Production on Season 7 of Nurse Jackie is set to begin this week, with a 2015 premiere date yet to be determined.

Update: The final season of Nurse Jackie will premiere on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 9:00pm.
