Lionsgate had the following comment, via Deadline:

“Jenji’s deliciously dark sense of humor and her fearless approach to storytelling have made Weeds Showtime’s highest-rated comedy over its past seven seasons,” said Kevin Beggs, President, Lionsgate TV Group. “She’s a superb showrunner and we’re excited to continue working together on the new season of Weeds, Orange Is The New Black and multiple projects in development.”

Kohan had the following response, in her typical comedic fashion:

“Kevin is classy. Sandra [Stern, Lionsgate COO] is sassy. [CEO Jon] Feltheimer is an endless source of wonder. What can I say? Lionsgate is my joint, yo.”
