'House' finale: Lisa Edelstein not returning

hugh-laurie-lisa-edelstein-may-2010-gi.jpgIt's a sad day for Huddy fans: Lisa Edelstein won't be coming back to "House" before the show's finale on May 21, says TVLine.

No word from FOX or Edelstein as to why Cuddy won't be returning, which makes the whole situation even more perplexing -- especially since "House" creator David Shore just told TVLine last summer that he'd love to bring Hugh Laurie's former love interest back before the show ends its run.

Around the same time, Edelstein had this to say: "I haven't talked to anyone over there so it would seem unlikely. Who knows what I'll be doing. I have a lot on my plate. I wouldn't want to answer that and get anyone's hopes up. It doesn't seem like that's the direction anyone is going in."

Our hopes were definitely up, and we're super-bummed that we won't get any House/Cuddy closure.

What do you think of Cuddy not coming back? Will the finale be the same without her?
