Weeds ended its run on Showtime after eight seasons on Sunday night. Fans will no longer get their glimpse into the lives of Nancy Botwin and her family. Nancy was finally forced to figure life out for herself in the series finale. She had no one to answer to but herself anymore in a future that was eight years forward.
The actress behind Nancy, Mary-Louise Parker spoke about the end of the series and what she thought about it in a new interview. She said the following, according to From Inside The Box:
“I just cried when I read it. I think it’s beautiful. [Creator Jenji Kohan] managed to bring things together in a way that was really satisfying for me except for the fact that it was an end because, you know, I think most of us are sad about that. I think she just managed to bring things together in a way that wasn’t necessarily a completelyÂ—she didn’t sort of make it a total happily-ever-after thing, but there was hope in it, and there was some sort of benediction, I felt like.”
This series spent eight seasons on Showtime. The network is known for trying to tie up series on its network in five to six seasons in the past, but this series and another current hit on the network, Dexter, have been given eight season windows to live out their lives. Dexter will return to the network at the end of this month to take over Sunday nights for the cable network.
