Hi Bryan Here….
Showtime has just released some spoilers and info on what we can expect from the upcoming season of ‘Weeds’ just in time for the holidays. Enjoy the press release below.
MARTIN SHORT, AIDAN QUINN & MORE TO GUEST STAR ON SHOWTIME’S HIT COMEDY SERIES WEEDS New Year, New Faces, New York on Tap for Season 7, Premiering June 27th LOS ANGELES, CA (May 26, 2011) – Some big changes are brewing on the hit SHOWTIME comedy series WEEDS – a three-year time jump, a Big Apple move and the addition of Martin Short, Aidan Quinn, Lindsay Sloane and several notable guest stars, including returning special guest star Jennifer Jason Leigh, all shaping up for an exciting season 7. Production on the new season’s 13 episodes is currently underway in Los Angeles for a Monday, June 27th at 10p ET/PT premiere. WEEDS is produced by Lionsgate and executive produced by creator Jenji Kohan, Roberto Benabib, Matthew Salsberg and Mark A. Burley. SHOWTIME’s top-rated comedy WEEDS stars Mary-Louise Parker, in her Golden Globe® Award-winning role as Nancy Botwin, a former suburban mom-turned-pot dealer. Last season’s cliffhanger had our favorite quick-change artist surrendering to the FBI for the murder of Pilar Zuazo. We pick up the new season as she has just completed a three-year stint in Federal prison. She’s now in New York , but no free bird – she must complete her probation in a strictly monitored halfway house, which means she’ll have to deal before curfew. A now bolder Nancy has to re-start the business from scratch. Meanwhile, the boys – Andy (Justin Kirk), Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould) – who were camped out in Copenhagen – are now Big Apple-bound with Doug (Kevin Nealon) in tow, of course and will be stirring up major trouble. The legendary Martin Short (Damages) headlines the guest star roster as an eccentric attorney in at least 3 episodes, while Aidan Quinn (Prime Suspect) will play a charismatic investment firm CEO in at least 4 episodes. Jennifer Jason Leigh returns for 4 episodes as Nancy ’s estranged sister Jill Price-Grey who has been watching Little Stevie while Nancy was incarcerated. Lindsay Sloane (Grosse Pointe) has signed on for 6 episodes as Maxeen, an eccentric conceptual artist who Andy (Kirk) meets at a gallery event, and noted actor David Clennon (Ghost Whisperer) will play her husband, Charles. Pablo Schreiber (Lights Out) will star as Demetri Ravitch, an army supply sergeant and brother of Nancy’s former cellmate Zoya (guest star Olga Sosnovska), who begins to supply Nancy in her newest endeavor. And Gary Anthony Williams (Mad, The Boondocks) will play Ed Watson, Nancy ’s halfway house counselor.
Wow! Martin Short and Aidan Quinn to guest star. Very cool. And did that say this season will take place three years later??? WOW. Crazy.
