Fox announced on Tuesday that House has been picked up for an eighth season. Starring Hugh Laurie as Dr. House, as well as Lisa Edelstein, Jesse Spencer, Olivia Wilde, Peter Jacobson, Omar Epps, and Robert Sean Leonard, the show has proved to be a success in both the critical sense as well as a ratings boost for the network. In its existing season, House only has two more episodes left, The New York Daily News reports. The finale will air on May 23. "Over the past seven seasons, House has redefined the medical drama and has given us one of television's most compelling and iconic characters," said Fox executive Kevin Reilly in a statement, USA Today reports. "From the producers to the incredible writers to the unbelievably talented cast and crew, the House team is fearless in its creativity and I can't wait to see what they have in store next year."
