It's probably for the best. No, it is for the best.

Although, I'll admit last season was something a bounce-back year, "Weeds" has been drifting aimlessly into darker and more cynical territory. It's not the fun suburban pot comedy that it once was. The stakes were driven too high, Nancy lost her soul, and everyone forgot what the show was originally about: A widowed mother trying to support her children.

The good news, at least according to showrunner Jenji Kohan, is that the final season will take it back to its little-boxes roots.

The final season will quickly resolve this year's assassination attempt cliffhanger, and fans can expect a time jump and a return to the suburbs. Beyond that, Kohan hasn't yet decided how to conclude Nancy's tale. "We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we're trying to figure out how to top ourselves," she says.

I'm not sad to see it go, but I'll admit I'll miss it a little: It put Showtime original programming on the map (along with "Dexter") and even during the bad seasons, there was always something to keep me watching, even after I wrote the show off half a dozen times like, say, Zack Morris taking Nancy over a bar (link NSFW).
