'Weeds' Season 8 premiere: 7 things to look forward to

"Weeds" returns for its eighth and final season this coming weekend. Zap2it has seen the first two episodes and so we thought we'd whet your appetite for the Botwin goings-on when we pick up with everyone's favorite pot-dealing family.Here are seven things to look forward to from the first two episodes:Not only will the premiere answer the "Who got shot?" question, but by episode's end, the viewers at least will know who did the shooting. And it came as a bit of a surprise to us. Just because we tease other plots for characters does not mean they were not the one who got shot.Shane is still gung-ho about the police academy, much to the chagrin of the person he decides to confide in about his new career path. There's a time-jump between the first and second episodes of a few months. Jill is still hanging around, knocking boots with Andy - til her husband... //

Weeds Sneak Peeks: The Botwins Have New Neighbors

As much as I like following the antics of the Botwin and pseudo Botwin clan, there's another set of characters that interest me when it comes to Weeds . Due to the havoc that the family leaves in its wake, having bounced from place to place, continent to continent for seven seasons, there are plenty of acquaintances and people around the way that have been crushed by their psychosis. Not necessarily people like Jill or Dana, family members that had opposite reactions to the continued chaos, but people that the family runs into for a short time and gradually drives away or drains of their resources.

'Weeds' Season 8 teaser trailer: The shooting brings the fuzz

Showtime has released a new teaser trailer for "Weeds" Season 8, which picks up where the Season 7 finale left off - that is, Nancy has a gun's laser sight on her forehead and a shot rings out. The next few clips are various hospital scenes and sounds. Meanwhile, back at the new suburban ranch where the Botwins and company are residing, a man (looks like a man) runs away in a black hoodie, while the cops show up flashing badges and guns. There are also a couple nosy old neighbors, who we kind of hope are recurring roles because that would be fun. Nancy and the gang return to Showtime Sunday, July 1st at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime. Are you getting excited for "Weeds" last season?... //

Happy 4/20, everyone! It's the annual National Weed Day holiday and to celebrate this year, Showtime's pot-fueled comedy "Weeds" has released its first trailer for Season 8. Granted, the trailer doesn't offer much in the way of hints. The trailer features every main character (Nancy, Silas, Shane, Andy and Doug) in various humorous poses while pot leaves and money rain down on them. If you'll recall, when we last left the Botwin clan, they were dining with Jill and a shot rang out. Should we take this trailer to mean none of the main characters were shot? We aren't so sure.But it is a fun little tidbit for 4/20. Nancy and the gang return to Showtime Sunday, July 1st at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.

Weeds Season 8 Trailer: Who Dun It?

The last time we saw Nancy Botwin , she was in the crosshairs of a would-be assassin. Of course, the many times we saw this lead character on Weeds prior to that, she was selling marijuana... and having the baby of a Mexican druglord.... and posing as a maid while on the run and dealing hash... and sleeping with pretty much every man she came across. Indeed, it's been a busy seven seasons for Nancy and her family, and it's likely coming to an end this summer. While Showtime is yet to confirm, odds are strong that season eight of Weeds will be the show's last. On what will the focus be for the dark comedy's final run? The first official network trailer takes us back through Nancy's earlier escapades, while making it clear new episodes will center on the identity of the season seven finale shooter . Who dun it? That's the question posed here: //
