House is set to close out its eight season run this May, but they’ll do so without returns from a number of alums. But one of them, Jennifer Morrison, says she’s thankful for the time she did have on the show.

“No one’s contacted me [about returning], and we’re way too close for it to even be a possibility,” she told EW while at PaleyFest this weekend, celebrating her current show, Once Upon a Time. “It was an incredible part of my life….It changed my life in so many wonderful ways.”

Last month, star Hugh Laurie and executive producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs announced the show would conclude at the end of this season. And it’s also been announced that former star Lisa Edelstein, whose abrupt exit was the cause of much backlash, will also not be returning before the end of the series.

“It’s a really special show and became an important part of television pop culture,” Morrison added. “I feel really lucky to have been a part of it.”
