House fans are still buzzing over the season seven premiere picture that surfaced online last week. In it, House and Cuddy look like an actual, happy couple.
Many of us long-time viewers never thought we'd see the day.
But producer Katie Jacobs has gone on the record again, confirming that these two will engage in a "meaningful relationship" this fall. She's even shed light on the September premiere, which will find the pair getting away from the hospital for a bit.
"Anywhere other than Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital is an easier place for them to be together in a relationship," Jacobs told TV Guide Magazine. "That's where we start — 'What if we only have each other?'"
The producer continues to tease the season ahead, saying House and Cuddy will double date with Wilson and Sam and:
"What's cool about Season 7 is that House is going to try to stay off drugs and have a meaningful relationship. We don't rush through this. It's taken six years to get there, so this is not a story that's going to be done in three episodes."
Jacobs also said Jennifer Morrison will return for a few episodes, but she won't serve as a replacement for Thirteen. The show will likely cast a new female doctor for that role.
