I hate to say it, but it’s about time….
Showtime has confirmed that Weeds will end its run after its upcoming eighth season.
“Weeds has been a seminal series for Showtime and was key in establishing the network as a home for great original programming,” said Showtime’s entertainment president David Nevins. “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 who have spent years following these characters.”
It was a wonderfully bold show in its early seasons, but frankly I’m surprised it wasn’t axed earlier than this.
The final 13 episodes of Weeds will begin airing in the US in July 1, including its 100th episode.
But there’s some good news with more from creator Jenji Kohan on the way with a new series in the works for Netflix, Orange Is The New Black.
