And if House is checked out of House, then there's really no point to having House, right? (Did you follow that?)
The cast of House got exciting news this week when FOX revealed they were renewing the show for its eight season. While the renewal is something to celebrate, it also begs the question if this might be the show's final season. For one thing, it got its pick-up fairly late in the game - never a good sign.
But also, star Hugh Laurie isn't really convinced the show had a season nine in it - or him. When asked about the show's future, he replied:
"The end of that [eighth] season looks like the end of the show. That's as far as they've got me for."
We think that's pretty fair. Eight seasons is a really good run and we know Hugh has other aspirations to attend to, like his music and his family back in England. Besides, perhaps the writers will find a way to wrap it up perfectly with an end in sight.
