It seems a deal is almost in place to bring House back for an 8th season. Deals were recently reached with cast members Omar Epps and Robert Sean Leonard.
“Over the past seven seasons, House has redefined the medical drama and has given us one of television’s most compelling and iconic characters,” said Fox president Kevin Reilly in a statement. “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.”
Hugh Laurie, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jaconson were already under contract for an eighth season. It is unclear whether Jesse Spencer and Lisa Edelstein will be back as they have yet to sign on for an 8th season.
Personally, I think this should have been House’s last season. The show went downhill when House went back on the pills. The whole breakup with Cuddy was a horrible direction for a show this late in its run.
We shall see how the rest of this season goes. I may not come back next season.
