I can’t believe I’ve neglected this story for so long but I felt it was necessary to share some exciting news: a new season of “Weeds” is just around the corner. Yep, Showtime’s twisted comedy is getting a new season.
Seasons one through three of “Weeds” was a “Blue Velvet”/”American Beauty” like satire on suburbia. Season four took a sudden turn by abandoning the comfy gated community of Agrestic for the more harsh life of a town right next to the Mexican border. Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) got herself into a whole new mess of trouble and as usual, got her whole family mixed up in it as well. The question is, will she be able to get herself out of this complete mess this time around? The utterly intense final minutes of season four saw Nancy pondering the possibility of death before saving herself with…pregnancy. But, is she really pregnant? And what will this mean for her drug dealing days?
“Weeds” season five begins Monday, June 8 at 10 p.m. on Showtime. For longtime fans, be ready. For newcomers, you’ve still got two weeks to catch up! And, let’s hope this season gets “Weeds” back into the Emmy spotlight.
