Nurse Jackie Sequel Series Starring Edie Falco in the Works at Prime Video

Looks like Nurse Jackie‘s about to sign on for another shift.

An Edie Falco-led sequel series to the dark comedy, which was originally in development at Showtime, now is happening at Amazon Prime Video, TVLine has confirmed. Our sister site Variety first reported the move and Falco’s involvement.

Nurse Jackie ran for seven seasons on Showtime and followed Falco’s character, an emergency-room nurse who was addicted to drugs. The new series will pick up a decade after the events of the series finale, which ended with Jackie snorting heroin and then collapsing at the hospital. Though she’s lost her nursing license, Variety reports, she’s “back on her feet” and “The continuation of her story will find her facing new dilemmas in trying to be good in a world where being bad is often not only easier, but a lot more fun.”
