We’re saddened to say that after season eight of Showtime’s hit show “Weeds”, the show is being put down. I know what you’re thinking, it’s about time, right? A lot of fans have responded that the show has long outran his course and it’s a good time to wrap things up. We disagree, but alas, the powers that be at Showtime are in agreement that Jenji Kohan’s creation is due to be canceled.
Showtime entertainment president David Nevins said, “There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming. How they get brought home is really important. In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show [Jenji Kohan and 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 this one the right way.”
The show’s writer Jenji Kohan said, “I’m so proud of what we do here and that it’s about a strong woman lead who’s really flawed. We get to do comedy right up against drama, which a lot of shows don’t get the opportunity to do. We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves.”
What do you want to see happen is season eight of “Weeds”? We’re hoping that the Botwins move back to Agrestic and that the show is able to incorporate Celia Hodes back into the mix. We’re guessing that maybe Andy and Nancy might end up together? What do you think?
