Big Changes for "Weeds"


Weeds will be returning on June 16th, which is great news, because it has become one of the strongest comedies on TV!


However, when Weeds returns, a number of things will be different. For the 4th season, the show will no longer be using the "Little Boxes" theme song that we have come to know and love. After the season premiere, a new theme song with new footage will be used. This is because if you recall, in the 3rd season finale, the town of Agrestic burned down, so the writers want to reflect that change in the opening.


Other changes: Mary Kate Olsen and Matthew Modine (Sullivan, the creepy real estate guy) will not be returning as guest stars. I'm alright with both of those; I was never too impressed with Olsen and I think that Modine's story line has played out. However, series regulars Romany Malco (Conrad) and Tonye Patano (Heylia James) will also be departing. I'll be sad to see both of them go - especially Malco - as I enjoyed his chemistry with Mary-Louise Parker (Nancy).

wait--- wut??? that is not good, not good at all...Weeds is practically committing television show suicide.1 - getting rid of the theme song that made the show lovable and memorable and stretched the new role of bands in playing the opening theme song?....2 - getting rid of a main character that spiced things up and provided an excellent mix with Nancy?...3 - Creepy real estate guy? As much as we hated him, that brought along a whole bunch of story lines....
....Im hoping Weeds can get through all this. And I have faith that it does...but its going to have to try really really really hard to pull back fans who fell in love with Weeds since season 1. It already lost a few due to the changes of Season 3. Maybe it can start fresh? We'll see.

How can Conrad and Heylia go!! They were the brains behind the whole show!! Without both of them Nancy would be nothing and no where but a small time mom. The show needs them!
