Peace Dr. Cuddy: Edelstein To Leave ‘House’ At Season’s End

Tuesday, May 17 by

Lisa Edelstein won’t be returning to “House” next season. It seems that the medical procedural is quickly turning into the “Law & Order” ofits time, constantly adjusting to an evolving cast.

Edelstein joins Jennifer Morrison and Kal Penn as show causalities, as she decided to step away from the show rather than take a pay cut. Her character, Dr. Cuddy, was originally introduced as an authority figure and House’s foil, but evolved into a bigger player, recently playing a mom and House’s girlfriend.

Her departure puts the show in a predicament as they don’t have time to shoot (or even write) a new storyline with the seventh season finale. One would guess that she will make an appearance in season 8 to tie up any loose ends, but such an arrangement hasn’t been contemplated in early reports.

Poor Greg House loses his girlfriend. I feel like this might make him even crankier. But dammit, he gets results. (THR)
