Weeds is coming back.
The original Showtime series is being rebooted by Starz.
The Starz reboot will take the form of a sequel series which is currently titled Weeds 4.20.
Speaking in a conference call, Jon Feltheimer, CEO of Starz parent Lionsgate, said:
“As excited as we are about our new series, I want to remind everyone that ‘the old is also new,’ and we’re pleased to be bringing two of the most acclaimed shows in television history, ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Weeds,’ to the global syndication marketplace next year. We will be launching the marketing campaign for ‘Mad Men,’ winner of 16 Emmys and five Golden Globes during its eight-year run, later this month. And we’re thrilled to be back in business with series star and producer Mary Louise Parker on what we’re calling Weeds 4.20, already in active development at Starz, as we prepare a comprehensive and integrated rollout for one of television’s most beloved properties.”
