  • UGH! I am so tired of reading about someone coming back to Weeds. I get excited every time thinking they are FINALLY bringing back CELIA HODES! Once again I was let down.

    • if a series is ordered (unlikely, there’s a lot of competition), Wilson would write and produce, not star, so the answer is no.
      P.S: I bet we’ll hear about a C. Anthony-pilot come May, but she would probably prefer some TLC reality show

  • Comment fail. Please don’t ever give Casey ANTHONY a show. Please…, pretty please?

  • Thanks for the new Scandal promo! Though I’m somewhat disappointed that they didn’t include any clips from season 2.

  • Does this mean no Celia for Weeds’ final episodes? It’s getting down to the wire…

    • Elizabeth Perkins at TCA summer tour (for ABC’s HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS), re: returning for WEEDS final season: “No. No. No…. It wasn’t really up to me anyway.”

  • ok, i realize Elizabeth Perkins isn’t coming back but, why the hell not. if it wasn’t up to her, then the Weeds people made a huge mistake. Celia was the best part of the show for the first few seasons. When she left, the show wasn’t as good. Also, I’m happy Guillermo is back.. always loved his nickname for Nancy, Blanca.

  • Hmm,that Banshee clip was brutal,like 5 seconds of actual footage.

    Comment by Shaun – August 31, 2012 09:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agreed. I reloaded the page and played it again thinking something was wrong. Useless clip really if you are wanting people to know what your show is about….
