The fourth season of Weeds
will premiere on June 16. Building on the success of last summer's hit comedy lineup, the network will once again pair off Weeds
with another half-hour series. Weeds returns for its fourth season at 10pm ET/PT, followed by the premiere of Secret Diary of a Call Girl
, a British hit series starring Billie Piper
), at 10:30pm ET/PT.
The Monday comedy schedule was announced by Robert Greenblatt, Showtime's president of entertainment, along with the news of the 13-episode order of Weeds
that began production in April.
For those who are not familiar, Weeds
is a dark comedy series that focuses on Nancy Botwin, a widowed housewife in an affluent California suburb, who has become an upper-middle-class marijuana dealer to make ends meet.
Last season, viewers saw Nancy's transformation from a hesitant drug dealer to a full-fledged queen-pin entrepreneur. But with each promotion on the crime ladder, the threat to her family also increased significantly, especially with her son Silas now in the family business. In the third season's cliffhanger, Agrestic and the neighboring church community Majestic, along with Nancy's customer base, were hit by wildfires and were rapidly burning to the ground, along with the Botwin home.
Fans can find out what's in store for Nancy and the rest of her family when Weeds
returns for a fourth season on June 16.
