The sixth season of Showtime’s medical dramedy series Nurse Jackie will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday September 23rd at 10:10pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.
Created bv Liz Brixius, Evan Dunsky & Linda Wallem, Nurse Jackie follows Jackie Peyton, a strong-willed and brilliant but very flawed emergency room nurse. For Jackie every day is a high wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses and her own indiscretions. The series stars Edie Falco, Eve Best, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, Ruby Jerins and Mackenzie Aladjem.
In the show’s sixth season, Jackie is back to using drugs again, but she’s doing it differently this time. She’s maintaining a clean and sober cover going to NA meetings, and never stealing pills from the hospital. Meanwhile, her daughter Grace, is still experimenting with drugs, unbeknownst to her parents. At All Saints, Dr. Carrie Roman’s probation is over, but Jackie has been assigned to shadow her; and Zoey and Dr. Prentiss learn that their secret is out.
