ShowTime announced yesterday (Monday, September 20) that they will be renewing their Monday night dramedies, “Weeds” and “The Big C.”
“The unprecedented viewership for both ‘The Big C’ and ‘Weeds’ proves that audiences love these shows as much as we do,” said ShowTime President of Entertainment David Nevins. “There are definitely more comedic adventures in store for these fascinating, complex women.”
“For six seasons, we’ve happily traveled along with Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) and we’re equally as excited to follow Laura Linney and ‘The Big C’ team as they chart Cathy’s unique journey through such a provocative and personal subject as cancer,” Nevins added. “We’re thrilled that these two signature shows will be returning to the network in 2011.”
The renewal marks the seventh season of “Weeds” and the second of “The Big C.” “Big C’s” showrunner said that each season of show will take place in a different season of the year, meaning the second season should continue Cathy’s battle with cancer into the fall.
“Weeds” and “The Big C” air Monday nights at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET on ShowTime.
