    The new season starts on Sunday, April 13. Now a four-time Emmy winning series.

    And there’s already a big news… yes, it’s already RENEWED for a seventh season.

    Season 7 renewal? That’s unexpected news. I didn’t think the show would go for this long, and hopefully Showtime won’t run the premise entirely in the ground. But this will give us more of La Falco, so cheers to that!

    Yeah, odd decision to renew this early. Maybe they are really impressed with the new episodes.  I just hope Jackie doesn’t relapse. The show has been better since she went to rehab and dealing with her addictions. I know it’s easy storytelling to just have her relapse again, but hopefully they do something more challenging.

    She already relapsed in the season finale. The previews basically have her back to hiding her drug use again with a wink.

    So glad this is back.  Not much of a break for me TV wise on Sunday nights.

    Sundays are suddenly extremely packed again.  I watch only two shows midweek, and everthing else is on Sunday.

    Solid premiere. Jackie’s relapse is so sad and uncomfortable to watch, but I like that this time she’s getting real consequences. This is going to be a dark, miserable season for Jackie, but damn Edie Falco is on fire.

    And I’m genuinely invested in all the characters and storylines in the hospital. Unlike most shows going into their sixth season, Nurse Jackie is still a strong show. This new season has a lot of promise so if it lives up to the hype I won’t mind a seventh season.

    Isn’t it funny how Nurse Jackie is the last remaining female led Showtime dramedy left? Weeds, Big C and United States of Tara are long gone. I said Nurse Jackie was the strongest show from jump and it has certainly been the most consistent.

    Nice return and I agree this could be a great season for Falco.  I’m happy to see her fall into deeper darker places brought on by her daughter’s continued decent into drugs.

    Good start to the season. Jackie’s relapse and hiding it from everyone has much potential, and Edie Falco is as fascinating in this role as ever. The hospital scenes are here and there. I don’t care too much about the inept blonde doctor being reinstated from suspension or Zoey’s relationship with Prentiss out in the open for gossip. Jackie’s relationship with Grace continues to sadly devolve. Julie White is a great addition here though and will hopefully add a needed spark to the proceedings. Interested in seeing where things go now.

    Grade for “Sink or Swim”: B

    I still love this show, though I don’t care for, or about, the inept blonde doctor, either. I miss Eve Best, who was one of my favorite characters, but I like Julie White, and look forward to seeing where that goes.

    There’s a rumor that season seven will be the last and I’d be ok with that. The premise of this show isn’t something that should be drug out for 10 seasons.

    Also, Peter Facinelli is leaving after this season. I don’t think he’s in all of season six. If the writers soften Morris Chestnut’s character and make funnier and more likeable, he could be a potential Coop replacement unless they add another male character.

    Eve Best is desperately missed. I hope the powers that be bring her back for the final season, though I read Best left because she moved back to London to be with her family.

    I enjoy the chemistry between Jackie and Zoey the most. Merritt Wever is so good in this role.

    Yes! I think I have to go back to Chris Cagney and Mary Beth Lacey to find such a richly nuanced portrayal of female friendship in a work environment.

    Seven seasons sound about right. It’s honestly about three seasons more than I thought it would go based on the premise. But Showtime is known to drag out their performing shows for a long time, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this go to a season 8 just like “Weeds” did. More Edie Falco is always welcome, but I hope they end up finding a proper resolution to all of this by the series finale, whatever that is.
