Medical drama House is ending its eight-year run this season.
The show's producers, including Emmy-nominated British star Hugh Laurie, said it was a "painful" decision but that the time had come to bring House to a close.
The drama stars Laurie as Dr Gregory House, a brilliant but troubled physician with a gift for unravelling medical mysteries.
Omar Epps, Robert Sean Leonard and Charlyne Yi also star.
In a statement, Hugh and his fellow producers said they imagined Dr House as an "enigmatic creature", and that it was best for him to vanish while there was still mystery in the air.
The season finale date for House has not yet been announced.
