Report: "Weeds" Ending After Eight Seasons On The Air

Well the inevitable has finally arrived: after eight seasons, Showtime's Weeds is coming to an end.  Along with Dexter, Weeds has been one of the channel's most successful series despite a drop in viewers and modest ratings.

David Nevins, Showtime's president, said "There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming.  How they get brought home is really important.  In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show (actress Mary Louise Parker and creator of the series Jenji Kohan) and an audience that's really invested in the show.  TV fans love nothing better than to complain about how shows end and we really want to end this one the right way."

Personally, I haven't watched the show since season 3 or 4 so my frame of reference is pretty weak.  I got tired of watching Nancy do dumb shit and make even dumber decisions with her business.  And that whole Mexico cartel baby storyline lost me.  Sometimes, you need to know when to just pull the trigger.

With Dexter nearing its end as well, it looks like Homeland and House of Lies (amazing shows) are going to have to shoulder the weight until a new series gets developed.
