Lisa Edelstein, who plays Dr. Lisa Cuddy on Fox’s ‘House,’ says she is leaving the medical drama and will not be returning for the show’s eighth season.

The actress said in a statement that ‘after much consideration, I am moving on with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead.’

Edelstein’s character, a.k.a. ‘Cuddy,’ and Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) have had an on-off relationship. It remains to be seen how the new season will handle Edelstein’s departure.
