Showtime has announced a renewal for a comedy series. Deadline.com reports that the pay-cable channel renewed "Nurse Jackie" just days before the dark comedy’s fifth-season finale.
Showrunner Clyde Phillips, who took on the role after the fourth season, will return, as will executive producers Caryn Mandabach, Richie Jackson and Tom Straw.
The program stars Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton, a brilliant but flawed emergency room nurse, a role for which she won an Emmy.
The sixth season will start production this fall in New York, with the season to premiere in 2014.
