'Nurse Jackie,' 'The Big C' and 'The Borgias' all return in April

nurse-jackie-glove.jpgShowtime will keep the original series tap open on Sunday nights into the summer with new seasons of "Nurse Jackie," "The Big C" and "The Borgias."

The three series will all debut Sunday, April 8. "Nurse Jackie" will lead off the night at 9 p.m. ET, followed by "The Big C" at 9:30 and "The Borgias" at 10.

The spring shows will take over for the cable channel's current Sunday lineup of "Shameless," "House of Lies" and "Californication."

Season 4 of "Nurse Jackie" will find Jackie ( Edie Falco) struggling to stay sober and butting heads with a new hospital administrator ( Bobby Cannavale) who wants to make operations more efficient. Guest stars for the season include Rosie Perez, Joel Grey and Falco's former "Sopranos" co-star Aida Turturro.

"The Big C" will pick up soon after the Season 2 finale, with Cathy ( Laura Linney) and her family dealing with the fallout from those events -- and Andrea ( Gabourey Sidibe) still really mad about being left at the altar.

On Season 2 of "The Borgias," Pope Alexander VI ( Jeremy Irons) vows revenge against the noble houses who have opposed him, but he's also facing a threat from within his own family.
