Showtime's comic drama series Weeds, starring Mary-Louise Parker , has been cancelled, after eight seasons according to EW.
The show, which tells the tale of single mother that finds herself selling cannabis to make ends meet, has been credited with paving the way for other daring television series to be made.
"There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming", The entertainment president of Showtime, David Nevins told EW in a statement.
He stressed that they were working on a top-class ending for the series, saying "How they get brought home is really important. In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show [Jenji Kohan and Golden Globe-winning star Mary-Louise Parker] and an audience that's really invested in the show. "
It's expected that the final series will quickly wrap up the assassination attempt cliffhanger, before returning the story to the suburbs.
