And this one is not only great news, but also a very good practice by Showtime.
Showtime renews Weeds for a seventh season, after solid premiere numbers.
Weeds sixth season premiere, which garnered over 6 million viewers – a record premiere episode for the series. made it easy for Showtime to decide that Weeds gets renewed and the seventh season (By Lionsgate) will premiere on the network in 2011.
Showtime’s critically acclaimed comedy series WEEDS took to the open road for season six, to hilarious ends. Dubbed by TV Guide as “….TV’s most compelling bad mama,” Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker in her Golden Globe Award-winning performance) and family are now on the lam after Shane (Alexander Gould) killed Mexican VIP Pilar (Kate del Castillo) with a croquet mallet. To elude the Mexican FBI, police and mafia, they grab what they can, toss their cell phones and IDs and get rolling, taking odd jobs and meeting new characters along the way (season six guest stars include Richard Dreyfuss, Linda Hamilton, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Alanis Morissette and more). WEEDS is executive produced by creator Jenji Kohan, Roberto Benabib and Matthew Salsberg and produced by Lionsgate.
So, if you read all these things, of course it´s a no brainer to renew Weeds for a seventh season! Good move by Showtime, who, let´s all remember hosts some of the finest TV Shows nowadays, including Dexter, Californication and The Big C.
