Showtime’s award-winning and addictively entertaining series is back and more popular than ever as Nurse Jackie: Season Five arrives on Blu-ray and DVD February 18th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Primetime Emmy® Award-winner Edie Falco (Leading Actress in a Comedy Series, 2010) stars as the complex and compelling Nurse Jackie whose life hits a cross-road as she spends the entirety of Season Five in an unfamiliar state…sober. Joined by a phenomenal ensemble cast including Peter Facinelli (The Twilight Saga), Eve Best (The King’s Speech), Paul Schulze (Zodiac), Dominic Fumusa (TV’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Anna Deavere Smith (TV’s “The West Wing”), Bobby Cannavale (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”), Adam Ferrera (TV’s “Rescue Me”), Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 2) and Merritt Wever (TV’s “New Girl”), who won the 2013 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Audiences continue to be hooked on Nurse Jackie as Season Five averaged 3.1M viewers per episode, up 10% from Season Four.
After leaving rehab early, Jackie finds sobriety and relative happiness — but that is the calm before the storm. With her marriage coming to an end, a careless accident sends Jackie (Falco) to her own All Saints Hospital for emergency care. While recovering, she meets NYC policeman Frank Verelli (Ferrera), whose flirtatious advances may lead Jackie into uncharted territory: dating. Stepping out of her usual comfort zone, challenged by new colleagues, Jackie faces her one-year sobriety anniversary.
The Nurse Jackie: Season Five Blu-ray and DVD include all 10 episodes from the season as well as audio commentaries with the cast and crew, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, a gag reel and deleted scenes. The two-disc Blu-ray and three-disc DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.97 and $39.98, respectively.

I LOVE THIS SHOW! I can’t wait to watch it every week when it is in season. I fell in love with Edie Falco when I used to watch the Soprano’s: I thought she was excellent in the role of Carmela Soprano! When Nurse Jackie started there was no way I would miss another series with an actress I love! It did not take more than a couple of minutes to fall in love with this drug addicted nurse, and Edie’s portrayal is absolutely fantastic.
The writing of this show is excellent, the portrayal of a woman in crisis is heartbreaking and riveting. Edie really puts everything she has into this role, you can see it on the screen. And the other actors are excellent as well, Anna Deavere Smith is my other favorite!
And my favorite part of owning any DVD or Blu-ray is for the behind-the-scenes featurettes, a gag reel from the cast and deleted scenes. Especially the deleted scenes, the ones form this season are an extra treat to see!
