Mary-Louise Parker on Weeds Series Finale: 'It's Not a Happily Ever After'

Mary-Louise Parker WeedsThe first review of Weeds‘ Sept. 16 series finale is in, and it’s a rave.

“It’s beautiful… I just cried when I read [the script],” leading lady Mary-Louise Parker told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “[Series creator Jenji Kohan] managed to bring things together in a way that was really satisfying to me. She didn’t make it a ‘happily ever after’ thing, but there was hope in it and there was some sort of benediction.”

Kohan described the conclusion of the Showtime dramedy as less of a cliffhanger and more of a nostalgic wrap-up to the eight-year saga.

“It’s a trip down memory lane,” she said, “and it’s lined with all of our characters from the past.”
