Are you a fan of Weeds? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Starz is developing a sequel to the Showtime TV show.
The comedy series stars Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin, a suburban mom who begins selling marijuana after her husband dies. The cast also includes Elizabeth Perkins, Hunter Parrish, Kevin Nealon, Alexander Gould, Justin Kirk, Andy Milder, Allie Grant, and Romany Malco. The show aired on Showtime from 2005 to 2012.
Weeds co-executive producer Victoria Morrow is developing a sequel series for Starz. The follow-up TV show would follow “Nancy Botwin (Parker, who is attached to star and executive produce) and her family 10 years after the original series, in an era when marijuana has been legalized in several states.”
From Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer:
We’re thrilled to be back in business with series star and executive producer Mary-Louise Parker on what we’re calling ‘Weeds 4.20,’ already in active development at Starz, as we prepare a comprehensive and integrated rollout for one of television’s most beloved properties.”
