'Nurse Jackie' Season 6 Premiere Date Set For April 2014

"Nurse Jackie" Season 6 is set to bow on Showtime on April 13 at 9 p.m. EST, the network announced on Thursday (Jan. 16).

Showtime also released a 30-second teaser for Season 6 in which the narrator says, "Jackie's back on the case and this season she's taking the high road." Jackie is also "using and lying about it" in the upcoming season, as we've seen her do in the past.

Tony Award winner Laura Benanti will appear in a recurring role this season, after appearing in NBC's highly publicized "The Sound Of Music Live!"

"Nurse Jackie" was renewed for a sixth season in June 2013 and at the time Showtime President David Nevins said, "Under the new leadership of 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.”

The final season of "Californication" will also debut the same night.
