Farewell to Showtime’s groundbreaking pot dramedy, “Weeds.” The much acclaimed series has been cancelled. The upcoming season 8 will be its last.
EW.com broke the (sad) news. “There were two shows, “Weeds” and “Dexter,” that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming, says Showtime entertainment president David Nevins. “How they get brought home is really important. In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show [series creator Jenji Kohan and Golden Globe-winning star Mary-Louise Parker] and an audience that’s really invested in the show. TV fans love nothing better than to complain about how shows end and we really want to end this one the right way.”
The final season of “Weeds” premieres Sunday, July 1 at 10 p.m. on Showtime.
