Producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs, along with the leadership of Fox channel announced the closure of the TV series "House" - the eighth season would be the last one.
The reason for this - falling ratings, as well as the reluctance of the lead actor Hugh Laurie to continue to play the genius misanthrope doctor. The rest of the series has not yet shown to be broadcast until April.
The series "House" is on the air on American television from the fall of 2004. The action of the epic is built around the Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital, located in New Jersey. There works a brilliant diagnostician Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) - a complex person in dialogue, but in fact the only one who can recognize even the most complicated cases, which he investigates with his own team of diagnosticians, but often providing his weighty support in addressing the problem.
He is also quite resourceful person, in order to gain insight into the psychological problems of some of their patients (and colleagues too), which are often not reliably describe the symptoms. Because one of the main principles of the House - "everybody lies".
At the same doctor for many years suffered from pain in his leg, to appease them, he always takes the most powerful painkiller Vicodin, which have formed dependence at House on what being built important aspect of the plot.
The series was one of the main driving forces of the channel, which, however, did not spare it from the lower ratings. "House" has brought Actor Hugh Laurie a wide popularity, as well as two awards "Golden Globe" in the category "Best Actor in a Drama Series."
A considerable share of the glory due to TV series has received and Olivia Wilde, who plays Dr. Remy Hadley, whose sarcastic nickname was Thirteenth.
Among the initiators of the series there is the author of "Suspicious persons" and "X-Men" Bryan Singer, directed two episodes.
