    Fifteen New Episodes of the Network's #1 Hit Comedy Series from Lionsgate Begin Production This Spring for Summer Debut




    LOS ANGELES (November 16, 2006) — Hot off last month’s shocking second season finale of WEEDS -- the most-watched episode in its history -- SHOWTIME is green lighting 15 new episodes for the third season of the award-winning series, it was announced today by SHOWTIME Network’s President of Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt. The network’s most watched comedy and critical darling, WEEDS is a biting and satirical look at the complicated life of a suburban, pot-dealing mother. Produced by Lionsgate in association with Tilted Productions, WEEDS stars Mary-Louise Parker, Elizabeth Perkins, Tonye Patano, Romany Malco, Justin Kirk and Kevin Nealon. Created and executive produced by Emmy® Award winner Jenji Kohan, the series will resume production in Los Angeles in spring 2007 for a summer premiere.
    Critics across the nation have widely praised the show for its cutting-edge, unapologetic and daring portrayal of complex characters whose choices are not always sympathetic and never stereotypical. USA Today gave the second season four stars (highest rating), The New York Post called it, “…a four-star potboiler...,” and The San Francisco Chronicle hailed: “WEEDS has managed, in two brief seasons, to get the balance right between provocative adult comedy and serious adult drama. It has managed to be soapy but real, grounded but insane, and electrically hip in the process. That’s a creative juggling act that’s both arduous and stupendous.”
    WEEDS is quintessential SHOWTIME: bold, provocative, premium television with production values at the top of the food chain,” says Greenblatt. “This acclaimed show will be the centerpiece of our comedy strategy for several years to come, though labeling it just a comedy doesn't do it justice. It combines comedy and pathos in a way that seems to represent real life better than almost any show out there.”
    WEEDS continues to surpass all our expectations and we’re delighted about the pick-up,” says Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate’s President of Television Programming and Production. “The talent – both in front of and behind the camera -- is extraordinary, and we’re excited about our continuing relationship with SHOWTIME, which has gone above and beyond to support the unique creative vision of the series since day one.”
    One of the most talked about comedy series on television, WEEDS stars Parker in her Golden Globe®-winning portrayal of Nancy Botwin, a suburban mom who turns to dealing marijuana to make ends meet after her husband dies unexpectedly. Nancy’s thriving business and ultra-chaotic home life force her to juggle relationships with her friend and newly-elected councilwoman, Celia (Perkins); business partner Conrad (Malco); brother-in-law Andy (Kirk); loyal customer Doug (Nealon); former supplier Heylia (Patano); and, of course, her children Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould) -- both of whom are now fully aware of her source of income. In the second season’s jaw-dropping cliffhanger, Nancy was left in a huge mess -- her nemesis/DEA agent husband Peter (Martin Donovan) may have been killed; desperate to join the family business, Silas has absconded with the stash his mother planned to use as an exit deal from the business; and finally, she and Conrad are last seen being held at gunpoint by two sets of thugs both wanting the weed and the money.

    What a great time to make this thread! I've seen the first season 82640174911 times and am just now starting the second season and am on episode 6.

    Spoiler:
    This season is so shocking and deep. It's still hilarious, but it just seems like everyone is over there heads. And the end of the second episode had the biggest OH MY FUCKING GOD moment I have ever seen.


    I'm probably going to spam this thread when I finish season 2, even though I don't think there's anyone else that has finished on here that would talk to me.

    You know, I almost bought the season 1 DVD of this show for 20$ during the After Thanksgiving Sales - but instead I bought season 1 of Grey's instead and got hooked on that.

    I am just beside myself with today's news that Weeds will live to do a third season of 15 episodes, starting next summer on Showtime.
    So I'm ordering Showtime when the summer starts.

    The interview also said Shane doesn't want to come back because he wanted to play his Nemo character on Broadway.

    The first season just started in my home country. And I have to admit: WHAT A F*CKING GOOD SHOW! It's so shamelessly real and the stories around the show are really good aswell! Not to mention the great actors!
