House Season Premiere Scoop, Photos

The sixth season premiere of House is less than a month away.

On September 21, fans will be treated to a two-hour special that will focus on the main character's experience in his new home, a mental asylum. The installment is titled "Broken."

One Troubled Doc

In a new interview with TV Guide Canada, House creator David Shore previewed the opening episode, along with other aspects of season six. A few excerpts:

On the two-hour premiere: This episode will represent his several months in the institution.

On whether or not Foreman and Thirteen will break up: I think you’re safe to assume that. You can’t have friction without having ramifications.

On the plans for House: Primarily, what we’re trying to do at the beginning of this year is House’s search for change, and whether he can or wants to change. It’s fundamentally the same character, but he’s also just trying to make his life just a little bit better. And trying to take the high road.

Having him just coming out of an institution, we didn’t want to throw him into a relationship [with Cuddy] initially. We want to deal with his mental health a little bit. House is trying to be a more mature person. And failing more often than not.

** TV Fanatic has also been sent a handful of photos from the season premiere. They feature Hugh Laurie as House, as well as guest stars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Andre Braugher. Click on each to enlarge...

House Quotes

People don't get what they deserve. They just get what they get. There's nothing any of us can do about it.


You know another really good business? Teeny tiny baby coffins. You can get them in frog green or fire engine red. Really. The antibodies in yummy mummy only protect the kid for six months, which is why these companies think they can gouge you. They think that you'll spend whatever they ask to keep your kid alive. Want to change things? Prove them wrong. A few hundred parents like you decide they'd rather let their kid die than cough up forty bucks for a vaccination, believe me, prices will drop really fast.
