This upcoming season will be the last for Showtime's acclaimed pot comedy, Weeds, according to Entertainment Weekly. Weeds, which has been on the air for eight seasons, has been one of the network's most successful shows and won numerous awards over the years, especially for star Mary-Louise Parker.
“There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming,” Showtime entertainment president David Nevins told the site. “How they get brought home is really important. In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show [Jenji Kohan and Golden Globe-winning star Mary-Louise Parker] and an audience that’s really invested in the show. TV fans love nothing better than to complain about how shows end and we really want to end this one the right way.”
The show will conclude the cliffhanger from last season, then jump into a new story that will wrap up everything from the series. But don't expect any hints for the final season just yet, because show creator Jenji Kohan told the site, "We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves.”
The final season of Weeds will begin on Sunday, July 1.
