Hugh Laurie will hanging up his stethoscope — and whatever other fancy tools doctors use — for the last time this May.
Get your fill of misdiagnoses while you can, House fans! The bosses of the hit (and sometimes miss) FOX series have announced that its current eighth season will also be its last. Star Hugh Laurie, creator David Shore and executive producer Katie Jacobs released a joint statement, in which they thanked fans for their loyalty and explained the reasoning behind their decision. They agree Dr. House should “disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air.”
In a nutshell, they’re saying they want to end the show while it’s still on top — or at the very least, before it becomes completely terrible.
(Check out the full statement over at our sister site TVLine.)
