Lock those medicine cabinets: Showtime announced that 'Nurse Jackie' will return March 22, 2010, at 10PM.

Now in its second season, the Edie Falco-driven dramedy follows the exploits of Jackie Peyton, a nurse at New York City's All Points Hospital. The show got off to a hot start last year with Showtime's highest rated debut -- more than one and a half million viewers tuned in for the June 2009 premiere. By bumping it up a few months, Showtime seems to be thinking 'Jackie' has more potential than a summer series.

Controversy arose after the premiere, when subsequent plots revealed a lead character who often violated ethical codes for her patients. At the same time, it depicts a woman who struggles with her own prescription pill habit, and the less than admirable ways in which she obtains drugs.Lock those medicine cabinets: Showtime announced that 'Nurse Jackie' will return March 22, 2010, at 10PM.

Although Falco had a multi-episode story arc as Jack Donaghy's love interest on '30 Rock,' 'Nurse Jackie' marks a full-time to premium cable for the actress, who won three Emmys playing Carmela Soprano on HBO's 'The Sopranos.' 'Nurse Jackie' sees Falco in a leading role that's similar to what audiences already know her for: a character who's sympathetic, yet willing to break the law. Tony Soprano would be proud.

'Nurse Jackie' joins 'The United States of Tara' in what Showtime is billing as an hour-long comedy block on Mondays.
