A New Weeds TV Show Is Coming With Original Star, But Creator Is Not Involved

Weeds, the popular TV show about a mother who sells pot, is coming back. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Starz is working on a new Weeds show with original series star Mary-Louise Parker coming back to play Nancy Botwin again. She will also executive produce the show. However, Weeds creator Jenji Kohan is reportedly not involved at this stage.

The show is said to take place 10 years after the events of the original show. In this timeline, marijuana is now legal in some American states, just like it is in real life. Weeds ended with a time skip that showed Nancy operating a legal pot business, so this is presumably where the new show will pick up.

There is no word yet on if any of the other actors from the original Weeds will come back. The show also starred Hunter Parrish and Alexander Gould as the Botwin brothers, with Kevin Nealon as the questionable lawyer Doug Wilson. Justin Kirk played another one of the leads, Andy Botin, while Elizabeth Perkins played Nancy's friend Celia.

The original Weeds ran for eight seasons, from 2005 through 2012. Johan, the show's creator, went on to make Orange is the New Black for Netflix.

Lionsgate, which owns Starz, announced the new show during an earnings call. CEO Jon Feltheimer said the company is "thrilled" to bring back the show, which it is calling "Weeds 4.20," at least as a working title.

The original Weeds ran on Showtime, which is owned by GameSpot parent company CBS.
