Nurse Jackie stars Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton, an ER nurse at a New York hospital who isn't only struggling with the high demands of her career but also a drug addiction.

The Emmy Award-winning programme is a co-production between Showtime and Lionsgate.

Clyde Phillips, who took on the position of showrunner for season four in 2012, will again return for the sixth run.

Meanwhile, Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins said: "Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series' growth in its fifth season.

"Under the new leadership of Clyde Phillips, and with an amazing cast led by Edie Falco, this show is as sharp and compelling and entertaining as ever. I'm excited to get to see the next chapter in Jackie's life."
