Showtime will be cancelling Weeds after its eighth season, giving writers time to create a proper ending to the long-running series.
"There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming," said Showtime entertainment president David Nevins to EW.
After last season ended on an assassination attempt cliffhanger, show creator Jenji Kohan says the jury is still out on how to conclude the series. "We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves."
The final season premieres July 1 at 10 P.M. on Showtime.
