Showtime Sets Return Dates for Weeds and Episodes

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?

Very happy to see Weeds back. I think they should kill Nancy off the finale. Have season 8 tell us what happened during the 2 months we missed out on during the Season 7 Finale. Then go back to the gunshot in the Series Finale. Or...basically anything else. i've enjoyed watching Weeds..it might've lost itself in the 5th & 6th seasons...but season 7 was great.

I'll have to check out Episodes, I love Weeds and can't wait for it's return. I could probably watch it forever if it kept going, it's already crossed the ridiculous threshold more than once, and I'm ok with that because I'm just enjoying the ride!

Weeds should have ended at the end of season 3. Agrestic burns down? You didn't 5 more season to convince you that Nancy Botwin is the worst mom ever. But I'm glad Episodes didn't succumb to the black hole that Showtime season breaks are.

But Weeds needs to end where it began: Agrestic.

I stopped watching Weeds last year, which hurts me so much. If they can finally agree to end after this upcoming season, I will catch up on last season and finish it with fond memories. MLP, she is my dream woman. And I love weed. So I should still be loving this show.

I like Weeds. And I actually have a good taste in television, considering my favorite shows are Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Community, Sons of Anarchy, Arrested Development, and so on and so on. I think Weeds has maintained its original quality more than most other shows that have gone on this long.



I don't mind good shows lasting a long time. Honestly, I think Buffy could have had another season or two. Same with Weeds. Season 9 seems like a good place to end for Weeds, although its likely that season 10 will be the end..

The 7th season of Weeds was really good, best in a long time, and considering it's SHOWTIME the show will probably get 9 or 10 seasons.

Was surprised by how much I enjoyed "Episodes". And I've been on board with "Weeds" since the beginning, but I would be just fine if this was the last season.

Although Weeds has greatly shifted from what it once was I am still enjoying it, the last season was probably the worst but as long as Doug/Andy and the rest are providing some laughs ill keep watching.

Episodes is definitely on my 'to watch' list

Finally word on Episodes. I'm looking forward to season 2. Why such a long wait? Also, just nine episodes, seriously?
