For eight seasons, Showtime kept television lit in more ways than one with its dark comedy, ‘Weeds.’
The Emmy-winning sitcom, led by Mary-Louise Parker, told the story of a suburban mom who turned to dealing drugs after the unexpected death of her husband, the family’s breadwinner.
Viewers disappointed by the series’ departure from its home network’s roster in 2012 just got a new reason to smile as reports now indicate it’s not only being relit with a new channel, but original cast members have been tapped to reprise their roles.
[Parker is] reportedly attached to the new project as a star and an executive producer, TVLine reports. The new series would pick up 10 years after ‘Weeds’ originally ended.
Victoria Morrow, who wrote and co-EP’d the original series, is expected to write and executive-produce the revival.
At this point in development it is unclear which other original cast members might join Parker in Lionsgate Television’s revival. No potential release date has been confirmed.
