Weeds sequel series in development

Mary-Louise Parker is set to reprise her role as drug dealing housewife Nancy.

US network Starz is working on a follow-up to their dark-comedy series Weeds

The brainchild of Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, the original show followed suburban housewife Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) as she starts selling marijunna to support her family after the sudden death of her husband. 

This new half an hour series, which has been referred to as Weeds 4.20, will pick up with Nancy and her family ten years later at a time where the drug has been legalized. 

So far, Parker is the only cast member whose return has been confirmed. Starz's parent company Lionsgate TV is set to produce.

Kohan’s name is currently not attached to the project but Victoria Morrow, who served as a writer on the original show, will author the script. 

Weeds first ran for eight seasons between 2005 to 2012 garnering critical acclaim and winning two Emmys and a Golden Globe. 

Alongside Parker, Justin Kirk, Tonye Patano, Kevin Nealon, Elizabeth Perkins, Andy Milder and Allie Grant also starred.

“We’re thrilled to be back in business with series star and producer Mary Louise Parker on what we’re calling Weeds 4.20" said Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer.
