NEW WEEDS SEASON 8 TEASE (VIDEO):
It's easy to forget that WEEDS, when it debuted, was considered very daring in it's subject matter, edgy is a good way to put it-- but it was (and still is) unapologetic and never seemed to concern itself about being PC or worrying that it might offend and get itself cancelled. 'Ballsy' is another word I'd chose to describe what has become one of my favourite comedies ever.
The comedy about a drug-dealing suburban mother (Mary-Louise Parker), which has been one of the cable network's defining series, will wrap its run after its upcoming eighth season.
"Weeds has been a seminal series, which was key in establishing Showtime as a home for great original programming," entertainment president David Nevins said in a statement. "It had a groundbreaking run; entering its eighth season, it's one of the longest-running comedies in the history of cable. We all felt that it was the right time and right way to end it. It was very important to us that we bring the story of Nancy Botwin and her family to a satisfying conclusion for the devoted fans that have spent years supporting this series. Jenji has managed to surprise us every step of the way, and I am confident in her plan for a spectacular series end.”
