June 6 (UPI) -- Fans of Edie Falco's Emmy-winning portrayal of a brilliant-but-flawed ER nurse will be happy to know that "Nurse Jackie" will be back for a sixth season in 2014.

USA Today reported Thursday that Showtime was pleased with the show's growing audience. "Nurse Jackie's" fifth-season numbers are up 10 percent since last year.

“Nurse Jackie is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season,” the network's president, David Nevins, said in a statement.

“Under the new leadership of [showrunner] Clyde Phillips, and with an amazing cast led by Edie Falco, this show is as sharp and compelling and entertaining as ever. I’m excited to get to see the next chapter in Jackie’s life.”
