Showtime has announced the renewal of a comedy series that has become a fixture for the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog.
"Weeds" will return for an eighth season, as the pay cable net ordered 13 new episodes of its highest-rated comedy series, the story reports.
Production on the new episodes will start next year, the story says. The show’s most recent season averaged about 720,000 viewers.
"Weeds," which has received many Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, stars Mary-Louise Parker as a drug-dealing mom. Parker’s performance on the show won her a Golden Globe in 2006 for best performance by an actress in a comedy series.
