American comedy series ‘Weeds’ has been canceled by Showtime, after it’s eight season. The show was created by Jenji Kohan and it had been produced by Tilted Productions in association with Lionsgate Television.
The main character in the show is Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker), a widowed mother of two boys who needs to support her family after her husband dies suddenly of a heart attack.
“There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming,” said Showtime entertainment president David Nevins to EW.
After last season ended on an assassination attempt cliffhanger, show creator Jenji Kohan says the jury is still out on how to conclude the series. “We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves.”
The final season premieres July 1 at 10 P.M. on Showtime.
