The show that introduced America to a pot-dealing soccer mom and changed the face of the network is sparking up its final toke: after eight unforgettable, jaw-dropping seasons, WEEDS is coming to an end with 13 episodes beginning Sunday, July 1st at 10 p.m. ET/PT. For the final season, it’s back to the ‘burbs for the Botwins. The fallout from the shot heard round the Tri-State area will transform everyone for the better, at least initially. The tragedy has caused Nancy to turn over a new (pot) leaf and return to her pre-dealing soccer mom ways. Meanwhile, Andy finds some semblance of love with someone uncomfortably close to Nancy, and Doug uses his hedge-fund money in a surprisingly good way. But just as it was in Agrestic, nothing is as serene as it seems in Old Sandwich, Connecticut. Just how long before the Botwins return to their old ways and blow up this new neighborhood, literally and/or figuratively, will remain to be seen.
Head over to Facebook now to watch the newest installments of EPISODES and WEEDS, and don’t forget to tune in on Sunday, July 1st beginning at 10 PM ET/PT for the official television premieres of the two shows, only on SHOWTIME.
