Showtime Sets Return Dates for Weeds and Episodes

  • 17comments

That bullet is still going! Showtime's Weeds ended its seventh season with a cut to black after a psycho fired a gun onto Nancy Botwin's dinner party, leaving its fan base hanging as to where the shot would land. We'll finally be able to see who ate the bullet on July 1, when Weeds returns for Season 8.

Showtime also announced that Season 2 of comedy Episodes, about a husband-wife producer team from England that has their television show butchered for an American adaptation, will debut that same night. The show stars Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig as the British couple and Matt LeBlanc as himself, the star of the show. It's been a bit of a hefty break for Episodes, which conluded its premiere season in February of 2011.

Weeds' eighth season will consist of 13 episodes, and Episodes will be back for nine.

This news begs these questions: Did you ever get a chance to tune into the surprise that is Episodes? Are you ready for Weeds to call it a series and end?
