Showtime Sets Weeds, Episodes Return Dates

Showtime, having already announced its fall premiere dates for Dexter and Homeland, now has filled in the conspicuous gap by scheduling the returns of its summer shows, Weeds and Episodes.

Weeds’ 13-episode Season 8 will kick off Sunday, July 1, at 10/9c, leading into Season 2 of Episodes, which stars Golden Globe winner Matt LeBlanc and will run for nine episodes.

Scoop-wise, the Showtime release shared nothing for Weeds, while the Episodes Season 2 teaser reads as follows: “The second season … picks up four months after the finale with Sean and Beverly no longer living together, but forced into an awkward working relationship with Matt, as Pucks! goes from a pilot to full-blown series. As Beverly struggles to save her marriage, Matt is determined to save his ‘bromance’ with Sean, and all of them are forced to try to save Pucks! as its ratings start to plummet and the pressure mounts.”
