It's Official: Showtime Cancels Weeds, Season 8 Will Be Show's Last
Weeds is going up in smoke.
Showtime has pulled the plug on the long-running pot dramedy; the show’s upcoming eighth season will be its last.
“There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming,” Showtime entertainment president David Nevins told EW.com, which broke the news. “How they get brought home is really important. In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show [series creator Jenji Kohan and leading lady Mary-Louise Parker] and an audience that’s really invested in the show. TV fans love nothing better to complain about how shows end and we really want to end this one the right way.”
Weeds’ farewell season premieres Sunday, July 1.
