Edie Falco Edie Falco

Nurse Jackie is checking out.

The Edie Falco-led dark comedy will say goodbye after its upcoming seventh season, Showtime announced Wednesday on Twitter with a poignant picture snapped at the first table read of Season 7.

"Edie is one of our finest actresses," Showtime President David Nevins said in a statement. "We are so honored to have had her on the network. She creates indelible characters and Nurse Jackie Peyton is no exception. I know this final season will bring her story to a close that will satisfy the ever-growing number of loyal viewers who have been entranced and, at times, appalled by Jackie through the years. I want to thank Edie, the incredible cast of Nurse Jackie and Clyde Phillips and Richie Jackson who have led the show to the success that it is today."

Showtime gave Nurse Jackie an early green light for Season 7 in March 2014, shortly before Season 6 bowed. Although the upcoming season will be missing longtime cast member Peter Facinelli, Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub will join the series as ER doctor Bernard Prince. Nurse Jackie's final run will kick off sometime next year.

Nurse Jackie not only helped former Sopranos star Falco become the only actress to win Emmys in both the lead drama and lead comedy categories, but it also led to the "Gettysburg Address of Emmy speeches" when Merritt Wever won Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her performance in 2013.
