WEEDS | Countdown to s6 begins

In Nurse Jackie, Showtime, Weeds on March 18, 2010 at 8:14 am

Showtime announced its summer slate yesterday, and it’s going to be a long summer of waiting for Weeds.

Showtime’s signature dark comedy will return for a sixth season on August 16. From Showtime PR: “Weeds viewers, still stunned by the last year’s season finale, will finally learn what will become of the Botwins after Shane (Alexander Gould) clubbed Pilar (Kate del Castillo) to death.”

The show will once again provide a launchpad for a new original series. This time, it’s the Laura Linney vehicle The Big C, which follows “a wife, mother and teacher who upends her life after receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis.” Gabourey Sidibe (“Precious”) has a recurring role in this new show.

Sophomore comedies Nurse Jackie and United States of Tara return this Monday, March 22. The Tudors will return for its final season next month. So what will bridge the gap between June and August? Filler.

Penn and Teller: Bullshit! is back for an eighth season. And the network is launching two new series, The Real L Word and The Green Room with Paul Provenza. Plus, there will surely be Weeds repeats.
