Nurse Jackie Season 5 ScoopNurse Jackie: Casting related scoop on season 5




Here’s some scoop on Nurse Jackie from Kristin Dos Santos’ Spoiler Chat Daily for Thursday 9/20/12.



Tom: I know you guys are Nurse Jackie fans, so any chance for some scoop???


You are correct, sir. Huge Nurse Jackie fans over here at Team WWK, which is why we’re so thrilled to be able to share this piece of scoop with you. The new season of the Showtime hit will bring us a new ER doctor, and he is the exact opposite of Dr. Cooper, except for the fact that his bedside manner is not the greatest. Dr. Will Prentiss will be coming off a three-year stint in battlefield triage in Afghanistan when he comes to All Saints, and his drug of choice is adrenaline. How will he fit in with Jackie, whose drug of choice is usually narcotics? We’ll have to wait for next spring to find that out.



Some how, and I’m happy to say, Nurse Jackie has survived the Showtime cut backs. The Big C will only get one more season, The United States of Tara was scratched, and yet Nurse Jackie still stands. Honestly, the ratings haven’t been too great, but the acclaim has been there. Edie Falco has received multiple Golden Globe nominations, Screen Actors Guild Nominations and Primetime Emmy Nominations for her role as Nurse Jackie Peyton. Typically when the award shows are still bringing a show into the building a network will hold on to it a bit longer. It’s the ultimate free advertising — not just for the show, but for the network itself.
