"House" to Get New Underlings?

"House" to Get New Underlings?

One of the biggest questions for "House" following its season finale was which — if any — of House's helpers would be returning to the show. The latest news on that front comes from TV Guide's Michael Ausiello, who reported this week that the search is on for four new junior doctors (two guys, two girls) to be House's assistants come fall.

But Ausiello also says that Jesse Spencer, Omar Epps and Jennifer Morrison are all expected to return, which would add up to a hospital so crowded it would rival "Grey's Anatomy."

Here's my theory: Cuddy will hire four new doctors for House to train, but they'll all hate his abrasive attitude and leave one by one, forcing him to un-fire Chase and convince Cameron and Foreman to reconsider their resignations. Maybe one of the new four will stay on for good — one of the women, perhaps, for the sake of sexual tension.

"House" fans, what's your take?

Great theory Buzz. Even though it would be fun to have 4 newbies I still love Cameron, Chase, and Foreman too much. I would love to see them come back next season. It's hard to say now but there could be so many different scenarios. Foreman could come back w/ Chase and Cameron and start his own cases while House has his 4 newbies on his cases. There would be alot of competition going on between them. Whatever becomes of it, I cant wait for the new season to start!! :]

If Foreman headed his own team it there could be several interesting twists. Competition, see who can handle more cases, and how the two teams could collide.

I don't have my own theory, but if the next season is anything like Buzz's theory it will be a nice change.

It'll be nice to see some new characters, and interesting to see how they'll make it all work. Hopefully one of the new males is also nice eye candy...

hrmmm... interesting news. my theory is that they'll now have two medical mysteries each episode and house will run one team and the other folks the other (didn't cuddy offer foreman a position like that?)

It will be fun to see the newbies ripped to bits, that's for sure. I just can't take it if Foreman and Chase don't return. I know that there are a lot of Cameron fans out there, but I'm not one of them. Love the rest of the cast though. I bet at least one of the newbies quits in the first episode. There will be tears.

House is going to chew the baby chicks up and spit them out. House will torture them and the old ducklings will torture House. Video Gold!

Nice theory! I guess I don't care what happens since the only thing that matters is they keep Chase, Cameron, and Foreman... The big question is, are Chase and Cameron going to stay together now?? I hope so...

I wouldn't mind new ducklings. Ne ways, I heard that all three old ducklings will be back, they just won't be working for house.

New blood would keep it fresh. It seems wierd to bring the original 3 underlings back after all of the talk about them "learning as much as they can" from House. Maybe they'll come back in a different capacity. I was freaked when finale ended but then thought it could work to have new people.

I like your theory too Buzz. I like the chemistry of the current set. Whenever new people are brought onto a show I always feel like it's jumping they have run out of stuff to do so they just bring a new face. But House is still great and doesnt' need to do that so maybe they just have a great idea for fresh blood. I really don't want to lose the core players though.

Love your theories, Buzz. New faces intermingled with the old could be just the right move to keep the show fresh and challenging.

I think it would be something nice and new. But...I would love to see Chase Cameron and Foreman back.

I like your idea. I was really not happy with the season finally. I would love to have them back.

At this point, I really don't think that I want all four of the new junior doctors to stay, but I am glad that they're shaking things up a little bit. The problem is that I love the characters they currently have on there, so I don't want to mess with it too much. So complicated! :)

I like the idea of new doctors runnign around bitching about House. As much as I would love Cameron, Chase and Foreman to stick around (and I hope they will, but in a different role than being a House underling), the season finale - particularly the final scene - was perfect. The optimistic music playing, House getting his new guitar, it was a great turning point that I hope they role with instead of reverting back to the old formula. Bring 'em on, and keep the newbies around (if they're likable).

This is interesting news. I dont know what to make of it. Picking the new junior doctors off sounds like it could happen, but its very much what happened on The Office when the merge occurred. I dont know if I can tolerate more of the same plot in another of my fave shows.
