Confirmed: Weeds to Conclude with Season 8

at .

Smoke em if you got em, Weeds fans, because Showtime has confirmed that the upcoming eighth season of this Mary Louise-Parker hit will be its last.

“There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming,” Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins tells EW. “How they get brought home is really important. In this case, both for the sake of the two women behind the show and an audience that’s really invested in the show. TV fans love nothing better to complain about how shows end and we really want to end this one the right way.”

The final season of Weeds premieres Sunday, July 1 at 10 p.m. on Showtime and will follow-up on the assassination attempt made against Nancy to close out Weeds Season 7.

Creator Jenji Kohan has confirmed some kind of time jump will take place on the premiere, but it's unclear how long will have gone by when we next see Nancy and company.
