‘Nurse Jackie’ Season 6 Premiere— WATCH Sneak Peek Video
“It’s only going to get more complicated.” That’s how Edie Falco opens the behind-the-scenes Nurse Jackie video (above), teasing the April 13 season premiere.
After last season’s jaw-dropping cliffhanger that Jackie had resorted back to drugs, taking a pill in the final moments, viewers were left shocked, but hooked, and wanting more of the Showtime drama. And they’re getting it — Nurse Jackie was just renewed for a seventh season!
“There are only a number of things that can happen at this point,” reveals Edie. “Her kids are growing up, her marriage is over and things do start to fall apart.”
So much so that executive producer Clyde Phillips describes Season 6 as the “three D’s” — deceit, decent and destruction. He adds that “season 6 is all about the consequences,” which is a result of Edie relapsing. “These pills are like hand grenades…[they] affect everybody in her life.”
But one important person in her life does not know about Jackie’s return to pills: love interest Frank (Adam Ferrara). “Frank is blissfuly happy and has no idea that she’s using again,” says Adam. “He’s a little bit naive, as to what addiction’s really about.”
But in the end of the teaser, we see Jackie coming clean to Frank about her old habit. “I can’t promise you I won’t relapse. I am an addict.”
Nurse Jackie Season 6 premieres on April 13 (9/8c) on Showtime.
