Weeds Series Finale Serves Up American Pie Alum

There’s not much to know about Weeds’ well-guarded series finale, but now we know this: American Pie’s Natasha Lyonne is involved.

Lyonne, who recently guest-starred on New Girl and Law & Order: SVU, will play a character named Tiffani, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She’ll show up in the Showtime dramedy’s final episode, a two-parter slated for Sept. 16.

The details we do have about the series’ parting shot come from reliable sources: star Mary-Louise Parker and creator Jenji Kohan. Kohan recently told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Beverly Hills that the hour would be “a trip down memory lane” featuring characters from the series’ eight seasons.

Parker, who at the press tour said the finale’s script moved her to tears, praised Kohan’s masterful touch. “She didn’t make it a ‘happily ever after thing,’” the actress said, “but there was hope in it and there was some sort of benediction.”

    the first order of business would’ve been to get Elizabeth Perkins back as Celia. Don’t really care about the trip down memory lane unless Celia is present.

    • Sean says:

      THIS. Pleas get Celia back!

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Elizabeth Perkins made it quite clear at the TCA summer press tour session for her new ABC sitcom that she will NOT be back on Weeds in the final season.

      • Rebecca says:

        Really big mistake then. The show was at its best when Celia was there. The only other characters I would like to see are Conrad & Isabelly.

    This season has been spectacular, and even though I’m sad it’s ending, I can’t wait to see how it’s wrapped up.

  3. rich says:

    i could see her playing an older version of Celia’s lesbian daughter

    I haven’t watched Weeds since the tunnel to Mexico, but I’m so happy Natasha Lyonne is getting work! Slums of Beverly Hills is one of my favorites.
