'Weeds' Sequel Series with Mary-Louise Parker in the Works!

A sequel series to the hit show Weeds is in the works and Mary-Louise Parker is attached to both star in and executive produce the series, according to Variety.

The show is being developed at Starz with Lionsgate Television producing. The original series aired on Showtime for eight seasons and wrapped in 2012.

Jenji Kohan, who created the series, is not attached right now. Victoria Morrow, who was a writer on the original series, is writing the new show.

Lionsgate is calling the show Weeds 4.20 and it “picks up with the Botwin family 10 years after the events of the original series in an era of legalization.”

“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,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said. “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.”

“I just loved the writer Adam Rapp. He’s so gifted and his prose is so beautiful. I just found the writing so compelling. I’m not always the best judge of what people are going to like, but I just thought it was really interesting,” she said.

Mary-Louise also said she didn’t think she was the best actress for the role and initially recommended friends like Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon to the producers.

The play is now in previews at Broadway’s Studio 54.
