"Weeds" Season 8 on Showtime is a comedy starring Mary-Louise Parker.

Season 7

Even the greatest escape artist of all time, Harry Houdini, would marvel at the way Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) has managed to wiggle out of crisis after crisis over the past six seasons of Showtime's top-rated comedy series, "Weeds." But our favorite quick-change artist found no easy escape from the latest buried coffin — after surrendering to the FBI for the murder of Pilar Zuazo, she served three long years in Federal prison. During her jail stint, the boys have been camped out in Copenhagen running an eco-friendly business, among other pursuits, while her little Stevie has been living with her estranged sister, Jill Price-Gray (special guest star Jennifer Jason Leigh). With Nancy now sprung, the Botwins — with Doug (Kevin Nealon) in tow, of course — are Big Apple-bound where they'll be stirring up major trouble in New York. But Nancy is not yet a free bird — she's finishing out her sentence in a strictly monitored halfway house. Not that anything can stop our now rougher, tougher, danger junkie from slamming her veins with an even sweeter fix — she's got a brand new bag of tricks that's going to blow everyone away.

Season 8

The "Weeds" Season 7 finale was punctuated at a family dinner by a fateful bullet from a lone gunman. Which of our beloved Botwins was the target and who pulled the trigger? Last season jumped ahead three years and picked up with Nancy finishing a stint in federal prison. She, her brother-in-law Andy (Justin Kirk) and sons, Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould) — with Doug in tow — were reunited in New York City where she re-launched her pot business, worked at a hedge fund, and fought for custody of her son, little Stevie, from her sister Jill.

The "Weeds" cast includes Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin, Hunter Parrish as Silas Botwin, Alexander Gould as Shane Botwin, Kevin Nealon as Doug Wilson and Justin Kirk as Andy Botwin. Special guest stars for Season 7 include Jennifer Jason Leigh as Jill Price-Gray, Pablo Schreiber as Demetri Ravitch, Lindsay Sloane as Maxeen, Aidan Quinn as Foster Klein, David Clennon as Charles, and Martin Short as Steward Havens.

Jenji Kohan created the series and executive produces along with Roberto Benabib and Matthew Salsberg; co-executive producers are Mark A.
