We still have months to wait for Showtime’s drama series Weeds to return for its eighth season, but it’s past midnight on the East Coast, which means it’s officially 4/20. Given the cannabis connection with that date and the plot of Weeds, it’s no coincidence that a new teaser for Season 8 showed up online tonight. In fact, the video acknowledges the occasion.
While the eighth season premiere of Weeds is still months away, Showtime offered up a fun little teaser for the new season, which celebrates Nancy Botwin’s wicked ways. Check it out ahead, though rest assured there are no major spoilers unless you aren’t caught up on Season 7.
Before Dexter and Homeland return in the fall, we have Weeds and Episodes to look forward to before then. Showtime announced the premiere dates for both series today. Set your calendars for July!
Following the news that Justin Kirk was signed on to star in an NBC pilot, those of us who know and adore him for his performance as the lovable (occasionally irresponsible) Andy in Weeds were understandably concerned that he might be on his way out of the Showtime drama. Based on the latest news, the actor may not be leaving Weeds anytime soon. At the very least, he’s signed on to return for Season 8.
Kirk will play a snarky veterinarian that loves the animals, but hates the people. Anthony and Joe Russo are directing and executive producing alongside Brian Gatewood and Alex Tanaka. While Kevin Nealon worked out a nice little deal with NBC and Showtime to appear on both Isabel and Weeds next year, we currently do not know whether taking the lead in Animal Kingdom will have an effect on Kirk’s role as Andy on Weeds.
The upcoming eighth season of Weeds could be the end of the series according to Showtime Entertainment president David Nevins. With the plan for next season’s storyline still up in the air and several options being considered, one of them is apparently a path that will lead to the Botwins’ swan song.
In what may or may not be considered good news, depending on how you feel about the last season of Showtime’s Weeds, it looks like Nancy Botwin will live on, or the show will, anyway, as Showtime is giving the dramedy series an eighth season.
