lisa edel 'House': Lisa Edelstein not returning for Season 8Take a deep breath, Huddy shippers. Life will go on. It gets better.

TVLine dropped a bombshell on the “House” fanbase on Tuesday, May 17, when Michael Ausiello reported Lisa Edelstein has decided not to return for the show’s eighth season. Edelstein’s long-term contract expires this month.

In an interview with TVLine back in March, Edelstein expressed her hope for the show to return for Season 8, saying, “Nobody at work seems to think it won’t [return]. Everybody wants to come to a deal and I certainly am looking forward to a Season 8.” Guess someone had a change of heart?

Season 8 is likely to be “House’s” final season. Hugh Laurie, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson are contracted for Season 8. Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps are also set to return. Jesse Spencer has yet to ink a deal. 

Sad Edelstein is leaving “House,” Zappers? Sound off in the comments below.
