Good news for Botwin fans: Although we heard that Weeds season 7 could be the last because all contracts were expiring, we’re now learning that Showtime is close to securing an eighth!

… and possibly ninth.

TV Line spilled the details:

I hear Showtime is thisclose [sic] to announcing a Season 8 pickup. And despite buzz that eight would be enough for all parties concerned, the cabler is apparently keeping the door open to a possible ninth season as well.

Show creator Jenji Kohan recently discussed what could make up a potential season 8, and it sounded good to us. What did you think?
