Weeds: Cancelled; No Season Nine

Showtime's Weeds endingIt’s time to say goodbye to Weeds. The Mary-Louise Parker series has been cancelled by Showtime. The upcoming eighth season, which premieres next month, will be the show’s last.

The announcement doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Weeds’ future was looking uncertain before the show was renewed for season eight and many suspected that the upcoming 13 installments would be the TV series’ last.

Showtime entertainment president David Nevins tells EW, “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 [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.”

Kohan says that she’s sad about the show coming to a close but appreciates the opportunity to wrap things up. She hasn’t decided how to end the series just yet, saying, “We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves.”

She noted, “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.”

The final season of Weeds premieres on Sunday, July 1st, at 10pm. The assassination attempt cliffhanger will quickly be resolved and there will be a time jump and a return to the suburbs. What happens after that remains to be seen.

What do you think? Will you be sad to see Weeds go or has the series already been on too long?

Please bring this show back, it’s the best show I have ever seen. PLEASE it just can’t end like that even years later. It’s not too late, maybe even restart please

I have just finished watching the final episode having watched the whole 8 seasons three or four times. This wasn’t just one of the best shows, it was THE all-time BEST show ever made! The mix of drama, comedy and outrageous actions made every programme unmissable. I got the distinct impression that that last smoke was a real spliff, and they all enjoyed the scene tremendously, but with a great sadness. I’d love to see series 9 and 10, but realistically, Bobby Ewing never walks out of the shower in real life (and who would really want him to?). Let’s leave it with everyone enjoying their last scene, with the characters all becoming mega-rich and reconciled. Life’s a bitch, and then you die. Long Live Nancy, Andy, Silas, Shane, Doug et al., if only in our memories and on video!

Showtime have to bring weeds back!
This was and still is the best TV series that have ever been made!
And the “end” is just horrible! It cant end like that!
We have to know what happens after that!
I got the series on DVD, and I’ve watched it so many times, and I still get the same heartbreak on the final scene on the stairs in the snow…
So please, showtimepeople.. If you’kl ever read this.. Bring the show back.. Or atleast write us a book..
Cheers for the best show EVER!

This was the best show on any network. I cancelled showtime when they cancelled this show. I know at least 6 other people did the same thing, or just went dark altogether. I have the series on DVD and I’ve watched it several times. Better than no weeds at all. Show was so popular people bought showtime. Very sad.

We know they all have to end eventually but dang-don’t leave it hanging like that! throwing us seven years down the road was not a cool way to end the show. when you still have questions then you didn’t end it, you kept us hoping for more! so bring it! please :) i love this show
