There's been a lot of talk that House: Season 8 is likely the final one for the medical series. Asked about the show at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour Friday, FOX's president, Kevin Reilly, wouldn't quite give a specific answer yet, though his comments seemed to lean towards it coming to an end this year.

"I can't confirm that it's the last season," said Reilly. "We've talked pretty publicly about the potential for that. Hugh [Laurie] is mulling it; the producers are, too. You know, unlike many shows that get into their seventh and eighth season where you're on your kind of third creative regime, these are the original creators. This is the original team through the ranks that have been there from the get go. I think it's something that's kept the quality so strong. I don't want to put words in their mouth, but I've spoken to them. They want to go out strong."

Reilly then noted, "We're going to revisit this later in the fall and decide whether this is the last year for the show on FOX or not, and then Universal [Media Studios] will have a decision as to whether they would like to try to keep the show going somewhere else, and the producers may make that decision." Yep, that's right: Reilly was allowing for the fact that Universal, who produce the series, could choose to continue House elsewhere, should FOX end it. However, he added, "My sense is that this is also a show that wants to stay creatively vibrant and go out strong and not limp along for four more years doing a vestige of what it was. But we'll get to that in the fall and make that final decision later in the fall."

I have a feeling they will be done. I love the show, I own all of the seasons. I know Lisa Eddelstein(cuddy) won't be back, so that's a pretty strong indicator; being that she's such a big part of the show. Great, great show...

Eh, I've wanted House to be over with since season 4/5. The show has gotten kinda predictable and I'd for it to end nicely, not played out and boring.

house isn't done, mark my words. They will put out at least 9 or 10 seasons. There are so many viewers, and he is the biggest asshole and always comes up with new ways to make things edgy.

I saw a preview on Fox about the next House season. He is in prison and is corrected the doctor in charge about her diagnosis on gonorrhea to an inmate. My interest level is slightly increased. Hopefully this next season does well.
