After much deliberation, the producers of “House M.D.” have decided that this season of the show, the 8th, should be the last. By April this year they will have completed 177 episodes, which is about 175 more than anyone expected back in 2004.
The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years — but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to everyone involved.


Since it began, “House” has aspired to offer a coherent and satisfying world in which everlasting human questions of ethics and emotion, logic and truth, could be examined, played out, and occasionally answered. This sounds like fancy talk, but it really isn’t. “House” has, in its time, intrigued audiences around the world in vast numbers, and has shown that there is a strong appetite for television drama that relies on more than prettiness or gun play.


But now that time is drawing to a close. The producers have always imagined House as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party. How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air.


The producers can never sufficiently express their gratitude to the hundreds of dedicated artists and technicians who have given so generously of their energy and talent to make House the show it has been — and perhaps will continue to be for some time, on one cable network or another.


The makers of “House” would also like to thank Fox Broadcasting and Universal Television for supporting the show with patience, imagination and large quantities of good taste. The Studio-As-Evil-Adversary is one of the many cliches that “House” has managed to avoid, and for that the cast and crew are deeply grateful.


Lastly, the audience: some have come and some have gone, obviously. This is to be expected in the life of any show. But over the course of the last eight years, the producers of House have felt immensely honored to be the subject of such close attention by an intelligent, discriminating, humane and thoughtful — not to mention numerous — audience. Even the show’s detractors have been flattering in their way. Making the show has felt like a lively and passionate discussion about as many different subjects as could possibly be raised in 177 hours. The devotion and generosity of our viewers has been marvelous to behold.


So, finally, everyone at House will bid farewell to the audience and to each other with more than a few tears, but also with a deep feeling of gratitude for the grand adventure they have been privileged to enjoy for the last eight years. If the show lives on somewhere, with somebody, as a fond memory, then that is a precious feat, of which we will always be proud.


Everybody Lies.

Funny you say that.

I still watch, but I did not care for the transition away from House, Cameron and Chase (was that season 3?)

I have stuck with the show, but I definitely liked the original cast better.

I thought it was going to be the last season anyways.

It was widely assumed because Laurie would not re-negotiate his contract (or at least that was the rumor).

Whether or not that meant he wanted more money or to walk after this year all along....who knows

Why couldn't this go in the TV shows thread?

House isn't that good of a show to get it's own post.

Terrible show, and House is a tool. Good riddance, crappy TV show.

Not that it matters, but Fox calls it "House". When I see it in press releases, imdb, or in the news (like above) I see it referred to as "House MD"

It used to be a great show, but the premise was just drawn out too long. It's the same thing over and over, but not as good as before.

Given the nature of the show, I expect a twist/ambiguous/cliffhanger ending.

Probably to help avoid confusion with this horror classic:

I love Hugh Laurie, and this was an excellent show at first. I think it jumped the shark season 4. And then hit a new low with the House/Cuddy thing.

This season has been pretty good though. Hopefully they give it a fitting ending.

Looking at the nature of the flesh coming off the hand I would think that it is leprousy. Or an acute spider bite. Then again it might be lupus.
