Everybody lies—even the makers of the show House? Probably not, in this case. The producers and Fox announced Wednesday that the wildly popular medical drama—based on the character Sherlock Holmes—will end this season after eight years on television. While there had been discussions about a new deal, the show’s producers wanted to cut costs. Also, House isn’t owned by Fox, but by NBC Universal, meaning ancillary profits of the show went to the studio. It looks as if it’s the end for Hugh Laurie and the show, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a last-second plot twist.
