Stone me! Weeds is ending with season 8!

US TV network Showtime has officially confirmed that hit comedy drama Weeds will end with the forthcoming new season, which is the show’s eighth.

Season 8 begins on July 1st on Showtime, and will run for 13 episodes, marking more than a hundred editions since the show began

In the eight years that it’s been broadcast, the show has won 21 Emmys, 10 Golden Globes, and six SAG Awards nominations.

President of Entertainment for Showtime Networks David Nevins said, “Weeds has been a seminal series for SHOWTIME and was key in establishing the network as a home for great original programming…

“It has had a groundbreaking run, and will be one of the longest-running comedies in the history of cable.

“It was very important to us that we bring the story of Nancy Botwin and her family to a satisfying conclusion for the devoted fans who have spent years following these characters.

“Jenji has surprised us every step of the way with her storytelling and I am confident in her plan for a spectacular series conclusion.”

And Kevin Beggs, the President of Lionsgate Television Group, added, “Weeds was a groundbreaking series for us.

“The brilliant work of Jenji Kohan, Mary-Louise Parker and the entire cast and creative team — and the resulting popularity of the series both here and abroad – were game-changing for our TV division and set the stage for all the shows we’ve produced since.

“Though it will be hard to say goodbye, this last season will be an exciting one that we trust will reward fans with a conclusion befitting their support and loyalty for so many years.”
