BFTV takes a look at the new season of Nurse Jackie, starting tonight on Showtime. NOTE: This preview covers parts of the first three episodes and contains hints for the first five, so it's up to you how much you want to be spoiled.
Season five comes with some behind-the-scenes changes. It’s the first since the departure of co-creator Liz Brixius, who wrote or co-wrote half of the previous cycle, including the season four finale. (Brixius retains a consulting producer credit.) As she leaves, joining the series is former Dexter writer-producer Clyde Phillips, who served as showrunner for the serial killer drama’s fourth season. Phillips wrote tonight’s Jackie season premiere, and understandably, his take feels like a slightly different show.
