Royal Pains canceled: Season 8 to be its last
USA’s ritzy medical dramedy is being put to rest. The network announced Thursday that Royal Pains will come to an end after airing its eighth season this summer.
In 2014, USA renewed the then-six-season series for a seventh and eighth season, each with a reduced eight episodes. These final eight episodes will contain the show’s 100th episode, and will begin airing on Wednesday, May 18 at 10 p.m. ET.
In addition to the show’s 100th episode, the final season will also include a musical episode featuring Christine Ebersole and Cloris Leachman as guest stars.

“It’s with great sadness, but even greater thankfulness, that we prepare for our final summer sunsets as Royal Pains comes to an end. We couldn’t have imagined a more talented and dedicated writers’ room, cast, or crew, and we couldn’t have asked for better partners than USA Network and Universal Cable Productions,” said creator and executive producer Andrew Lenchewski and executive producer Michael Rauch in a statement.
