FOX NATIONAL NEWS - It’s been a great ride, but the journey is finally over for the FOX hit medical drama, “House.” After 8-years, an insane amount of pain pills and complicated cases, the show will call a quits at the end of this season.

By the conclusion of the series, “House” will have filmed more than 175 episodes. Since launching in 2004, the show gained critical acclaim and gained a loyal fan-base. Now, the show creator and executive producer David Shore, executive producer Katie Jacobs and star Hugh Laurie issue a public letter letting fans know about the decision.

"Since it began, 'House' has aspired to offer a coherent and satisfying world in which everlasting human questions of ethics and emotion, logic and truth, could be examined, played out and occasionally answered," reads the statement. "This sounds like fancy talk, but it really isn't. 'House' has, in its time, intrigued audiences around the world in vast numbers, and has shown that there is a strong appetite for television drama that relies on more than prettiness or gunplay.

"But now that time is drawing to a close," the letter continues. "The producers have always imagined House as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party. How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air."
