President Kevin Reilly shared the network's dedication to making sure that the show will "go out strong" at a Television Critics Association conference on Friday.
On the show potentially continuing past 2012, he stated: "Hugh [Laurie] is mulling it and the producers are. This is the original team that has been there from the get-go, which has kept the quality so strong.
"They want to go out strong, so we're gonna revisit it in the fall and decide if this will be the last year. Universal [the studio] may decide if they want to take the show somewhere else. My sense is that this is a show that wants to go out strong and not limp along."
Reilly also cast doubt upon a mooted House spinoff, clarifying: "There's no plans right now. There's only been abstract discussions. I don't really see that happening."
House was renewed for an eighth season in May. The show is due to return in the US on October 3.
House will continue to air Thursdays at 10pm on Sky1 in the UK.
