Peter Facinelli begins work on 'Nurse Jackie' season three

Peter Facinelli has updated his Twitter page to state that he has begun work on Nurse Jackie's third season, which was greenlit in March of this year following a successful second season debut.

In the series' second season, Showtime orchestrated an interactive Twitter page for Facinelli's character, "Dr. Fitch Cooper," which issued updates simultaneous with each episode's airing. That site was also recently updated with information on the character's stand-up cutout availability, so it's possible the tradition will continue with Season Three.

This morning, Facinelli will be appearing on The Wendy Williams Show at 10:00 a.m. EST and The Joy Behar Show at 9:00 p.m. EST, likely to update fans on his work, per his Twitter page.
