Kohan, Parker say goodbye to 'Weeds'

It’s about all over but the shouting for Showtime’s “Weeds.”

Mary-Louise Parker

The eighth season of the Mary-Louise Parker vehicle wraps up Sunday.

In “Weeds,” Parker is a marijuana-dealing single mother in the suburbs trying to make ends meet.

“I had no idea when I wrote the pilot what the end of the series would be,” showrunner Jenji Kohan said to The Hollywood Reporter. “When you write a pilot, you’re hopeful; you’re not looking to end it. I was trying to think, ‘How can I think of an ending that is going to generate stories for as long as possible?”

“Every year it was a reboot and we would start again and say, ‘What do we want to do this year, it might be our last, and then have to rip it up,” Kohan said.

Parker also told The Hollywood Reporter she would have loved to continue doing “Weeds.”  She also jokingly said she might have a Nancy Botwin night Sunday.

"I've never smoked pot and I said to Hunter Parish, maybe we should the last night!" she told The Hollywood Reporter. “Now at the age of 48 I should start smoking pot, I’m going to be really sad so I might do it!”
