Showtime announced today that the upcoming eighth season of “Weeds” will be the show’s last.Though many consider the show past its prime, the Emmy-nominated comedy leaves behind a legacy.
“There were two shows, ‘Weeds’ and ‘Dexter,’ that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting edge original programming,” says Showtime entertainment president David Nevins.
Creator Jenji Kohan is still working on the final episodes of the season, and will have the opportunity to wrap the show up accordingly.
“Weeds” begins its swan song on July 1.
