I’ve been catching up on the House, MD episodes I missed this past season; here’s a hint, it’s all of them. I still really love the show, but a lot of it’s luster has worn off over the years. Today another nail in the coffin hit as Lisa Edelstein (who plays Dean of Medicine Dr. Lisa Cuddy on the show) announced she would not be returning for the 8th, and possibly final, season of the popular series.
Edelstein just wrapped up on the 7th season, wherein she had a strong romantic entanglement with House himself, the finale of which airs this coming Monday. Aside from Jesse Spencer, the remainder of the cast are locked into contracts that see them through the conclusion of the 8th season at the latest.
A member of the cast and series mainstay since it’s pilot, Dr. Lisa Cuddy was the Dean of Medicine at Princeton Plaisborough Hospital, as well as a longtime friend of lead character Dr. Greg House and Dr. Robert Wilson. After 6 seasons of will they/won’t they, she and House finally began a romantic relationship which has lasted most of the season.
