Hugh Laurie has said that the upcoming series of his medical drama 'House' is likely to be his last.

Laurie begins filming the eighth series this summer and told the Radio Times that "the end of that season, right now, looks like the end of the show".

Asked if he wanted the show to end, Laurie said of his contract: "Well, that's as far as they've got me for."

In other 'House' news, reports that Laurie's co-stars Robert Sean Leonard (Dr James Wilson) and Omar Epps (Dr Eric Foreman) have agreed deals to return for the eighth season, while Lisa Edelstein (Dr Lisa Cuddy) is also expected to return in a new deal.

Laurie has just released his debut album of blues covers, 'Let Them Talk'.
