Just one month after shattering Showtime records for original program ratings, Weeds has been renewed for two additional seasons.
Showtime revealed the renewal as part of a slew of announcements made during its Television Critics Association press tour session on Friday (July 18).
The fourth season of “Weeds” premiered in June to a first-airing audience of 1.35 million, up 64 percent from the show’s third season premiere and Showtime’s most viewed original show since at least 2004. “Weeds” has also sold well on iTunes and picked up myriad Emmy nominations, making the fifth and sixth season renewal something of a no-brainer.
This time I added 94 HQ screen captures from latest episode of Weeds. Click on the below link to view all the added captures.

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences who bring us the Emmys every year have pre-released Top 10 lists of comedy and drama series in contention for the awards. The full nominees list will be out in a few weeks.
Weeds scored a spot on the comedy Top 10, along with HBO shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage, both of which feel pretty irrelevant these days, and network series including Ugly Betty, The Office and Family Guy.
Five finalists from each category are expected to make the official list when the noms announced July 17. The Academy decided to do the pre-release because last year some of the info leaked ahead of time.

Elizabeth has blasted the myth the cast of drug comedy Weeds smoke real marijuana on-set – insisting producers supply them with a harmless “stunt herb”.
The star plays a suburban housewife with an illegal habit in the hit U.S. TV show.
She reveals the secret behind the substance that doubles for the drug: “It’s a combination of herbs that don’t get you stoned. If we smoked real weed, we wouldn’t get anything done over here.”
But Perkins insists the real drug is harmless and should be decriminalised: “I think it is crazy that it is illegal, and I think it is crazy that people are in jail once they get busted with small amounts of marijuana. I just don’t see it as that dangerous of a narcotic.”
