House Season 9 has been a dream for fans for a decade now! Everybody wants to see their favorite hospital crew return for one more season! Additionally, there are a few loose strings in the ending of the eighth season, which fans hoped would be tied down in Season 9.
Is there any official word on House Season 9? Is it ever coming back? Keep on reading to find out.
House Season 9 Release Date
Premiering in 2004, House Season 1 blew up on the internet and secured a fanbase of millions in a few days. It was the first series of its kind and experimented with a new genre- medical drama! The series released a second season in 2005, the third season in 2006, and the fourth one in 2007. This was followed by the fifth season in 2008, the sixth season in 2009, and the seventh one in 2010. The latest season, season 8, came out in 2011. It was a huge hit and won the hearts of millions of fans globally. In fact, House has a spectacular rating of 8.7 on IMBD and a 90% rating on rotten tomatoes. Thus, it is no surprise that House Season 9 is in huge demand, and fans are still eagerly waiting for it.
Unfortunately, Fox has canceled House, and fans will not be getting a ninth season. One reason is that the show’s popularity and revenues begin declining towards the end of the last few seasons. Moreover, Fox and NBC had a major disagreement over the expense of producing season 8. Fox wanted a bigger discount on the licensing cost as producing one episode took $5 million! However, the company was not granted this aid which led to the cancelation of the show. Fox was even wary about releasing the eighth season in the beginning. However, both Fox and NBC agreed that House Season 8 was mandatory and had to be produced!
Both Creator David Shore and executive producer Katie Jacobs agreed that it was time for the series to end for good! They were seconded by the series star and executive producer Hugh Laurie. They announced the cancellation of the series in a press release saying,
“After much deliberation, the producers of House M.D. have decided that this season of the show, the 8th, should be the last. By April this year, they will have completed 177 episodes, which is about 175 more than anyone expected back in 2004.”
House Season 9 Plot
House revolves around the lives of the doctors at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. Dr. Gregory House is the main character who is the chief of the diagnostic team at the hospital. His unconventional methods of reporting patients’ illnesses and his argumentative nature make others dislike him. He only has two friends, Dr. Lisa Cuddy and Dr. James Wilson. Both of them left the show by the end of Season 8.
Fans wanted a season 9 as they were excited to know about House’s coping mechanisms. How would he survive life at the hospital without both of his friends? Will he finally begin listening to his coworkers and getting on their good side? Or will he leave the hospital itself? All in all, House Season 9 would be an exciting season full of plot twists and medical drama!
House Season 9 Cast

Both Lisa Edelstein (Dr. Lisa Cuddy) and Robert Sean Leonard (Dr. James Wilson) would not return for Season 9. This is because Lisa left the show as she was underpaid compared to other artists, and Robert’s character died in the eighth season.
Since the show is canceled, fans will not get a trailer for House Season 9. Both Fox and NBC have confirmed that they will not renew the show.
