British actor Hugh Laurie has spoken out against those who have claimed that the eighth season of House is set to be the last. Hugh revealed that nothing had been set in stone, even though he is set to leave the hit FOX show to focus on his music aspirations.
Laurie explained, "Nobody has pounded the table and said, 'dammit, this is the last, and I'll see you all in court! I have a feeling that we'll all know come February or so, whether this is something that we should be going on with or not.” Hugh admitted that the final decision is down to the network.
He added, “The network and the studio are doing their own sums all the time and they may say, 'Do you mind making it in a photo booth now?,' because dramas are expensive and times are hard and belts are tight." The eighth, and potentially final season, of House premieres on October 3.
