It's Official: Showtime Cancels Weeds, Season 8 Will Be Show's Last

Get More: Cancellations, News

Weeds CancelledWeeds 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.

  • It absolutely is NOT ENOUGH. Great shows go on for a lot longer. They have ebbs and flows. This show was but a child. wished it could have gotten to grow up!

  • That’s what makes a show great it ends. What makes a show real is to conceptualize the demise of a major character

  • Great show! Sad to see it end. In my opinion should’ve had another season. Just makes you want to keep on watching and knowing what’s next. Very afflicting show makes you feel like part of the Botwin family.

  • What the hell man? You guys ruined my life I was sitting here day after day waiting on Weeds to make a new season. This will forever be one of my favorites. I can relate in so many ways. Just remember folks, buy it, roll it, smoke it. On 420 everybody who loves Weeds gotta smoke one for Nancy, Silas, Andy, of course my nigga Conrad, Doug, and OG Heylia. Ima miss getting high while watching this.

  • Im just now watching the whole series on Netflix. This is the some of the best dialogue I’ve ever heard, on TV or movies. I could watch this the rest of my life. Sorry it has to end at season 8. Kudoos to the writers and creator of Weeds.

    • If you think this is good dialogue I shudder to think of what you are exposed to on a daily basis.

  • Complete trash created by the ugliest woman on the planet. How on earth does her husband have sex with her? She looks like John Goodman in a wig and has a vocabulary limited to two or three of the nastiest curse words. Where’s the creativity here? Edginess is all that’s required today for this moronic public to think they’re watching something really good and for the idiots in Hollywood to hand out their meaningless awards. Pathetic. Good riddance Jenji Kohan and all your ilk (that includes Lena Dunham, the queen of frauds).

  • I am pretty sure that Tv people are all about the people and what they want to watch. I happen to know this because I talked to a women that was in this type of business. All that you guys want is what we want. That’s what sells. To be honest I absolutely love your tv show weeds and so do most of these people from the comments. I am just a ordinary person just like all of these people. All that “WE THE PEOPLE” want is for you to turn it back on. This show brought life and excitement with all the characters that were chosen. The best one that stood out the most was Esteban Reyes to me. He made the show complete. This show is perfect for all the people. But hey like I said I am just a ordinary person and if you don’t think the people like weeds more than dexter than your thinking wrong. If any of the characters or producers had ever met me they would be surprised that all of this would be coming out of my mouth. Well, Tvline media, LLC I hope you take all my words into suggestion. Have a good day.
