Is 'Weeds' ending after next season?

 That's the word, according to series creator Jenji Kohan who has admitted to TV Guide that she feels "the seventh season is the final season". Everyone's contract is up next year, [including] the actors and mine" she said. "Seven years is a good run, and I'd rather leave while on top. I'd never say never, but I have a feeling this right be it."

 However, Kohan admits she is partly sad to see the show ending, saying:  "It's very strange and exciting and scary and sad in a lot of ways. We have such an extraordinary team".

 As far as the final farewell goes, Kohan stated that she already knows how the series is going to end:
"There are two versions of the end of the series that I've had in mind, and it would be figuring out which way to go."

 "Weeds" is one of my favourite summer shows, it has great writing and Mary Louise Parker is simply amazing as Nancy, but I have to agree with Kohan: it is time to give it closure or the stories will get absurd. I just hope that the series ends on a positive note as those characters have already gone through so much!

Are you sad to see "Weeds" reach its final season? Or do you think the show could go on a little longer? Tell me all about it in the comments below!


  1. MORE WEEDS, I SAY!!! What an amazing blend of an intriguing storyline, perfect casting, and cliffhangers that leave me shivering with anticipation for the next show!! I am addicted to this series. I hate that next season will be the last, I hope Kohan reconsiders.

  2. It's one of my favorite shows, going to miss it! Hope they end with a happy ending...
