Weeds: Season 8 (2012)


Season 8

Critics Consensus

Mary-Louise Parker remains a mesmerizing presence, but Weeds' final installment burns the series' remaining goodwill down to a sorry roach with perfunctory plotting and a sense that this story no longer resembles the one fans fell in love with.

Pour one out to Showtime's Weeds, y'all. But not the good stuff. The show no longer deserves it.

Almost completely misses.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

What was once a contained and quirky -- though sometimes dark -- comedy about a mess of a woman, has become a global disaster.

I'm pretty sure there aren't drugs strong enough to get me to the bittersweet end of this series.

The show had been through so many time jumps and location changes, it was hard to know which state or decade we were supposed to be in, and even harder to care.

The entire premiere was a win for Weeds, which has had a rough past few seasons. But if there's any time to get the show back on track, it is now -- just in time for a proper ending.

It felt like the Weeds finale could have been more focused and a bit more eventful.

Jul 1, 2012 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

I'm all in for the final season, I'll do my best to keep an open mind, but perhaps Weeds and Nancy would have been best served if they were not revived.

Jul 1, 2012 | Rating: 3.3/5 | Full Review…

Weeds does manage to maintain the dry humor that made it a hit to begin with, and this isn't the brand of listless cynicism we get from lesser comedy writers content to appear savvy and hip.

Jul 1, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

While I wouldn't say I'm optimistic about this season, the certainty of its place in Weeds' larger narrative makes it considerably more palatable.

Audience Reviews for Weeds: Season 8

  • Sep 04, 2019
    The only good thing about this season was how Andys story ended
  • Aug 17, 2015
    This show was actually not that original and not something new, but it was fun to watch! It was very well made and actually pretty enjoyable. The 7year jump actually made it a little bit confusing / less enjoyable to watch for me because it actually destroyed something that they created and ruined the ambience.

    Absolutely loved the ending. The show started to get redundant, but the end was worth the wait.

    Well.. in my opinion they should have ended with season 7

    Great End.......little boxes

    This last season brings character development and ends the overwrought story on a good note.
  • Jan 02, 2014
    Worst season. This season ruined the whole show for me. If there was a season 8 I'd skip it. What a lazy ending. This show used to be good but it has gotten so pathetic it doesn't matter anymore.
