(NEW YORK) -- The Hugh Laurie drama House will end its eight-season run on Fox Monday night.
In the finale, airing at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time, Laurie's titular doctor takes stock of his life while treating a drug-addicted patient. The episode will be preceded by a one-hour retrospective.
Laurie warns fans not to expect any big twists in the finale.
He says, "It’s not going to be that sort of an ending when people go, oh my God, it just sort of flips and it was all a dream or the whole thing’s flipped upside down... I think it’s a very elegant and satisfying ending."
Since its premiere in 2004, House's cast has included, at one point or another, Lisa Edelstein, Olivia Wilde, Robert Sean Leonard, Jesse Spencer, Omar Epps, Jennifer Morrison, Kal Penn and Amber Tamblyn.
