Is “Ticky Tacky” Coming Back-y? Starz to Develop ‘Weeds’ sequel!

Is “Ticky Tacky” Coming Back-y? Starz to Develop ‘Weeds’ sequel!

Our favorite buds, the Botwins, are back with a new deal…

America’s favorite high-minded family is heading back to the small screen. The news of the Starz destined sequel comes on the coattails of some serious Marijuana related buzz and legal advancements over the past year.
Originally running from 2005 to 2012, “Weeds” is set to return with a plot reflecting a self-awareness of the cultural shift in the court of public opinion when it comes to the social acceptance of the sticky icky subject. 

“Weeds” (2005-2012)

With the show’s 2012 finale opening the door to a world of legal and commoditized pot distribution, it should not be too far fetched for audiences to pick up 8 years later amidst a weed renaissance and with the Botwin family perhaps feeling the pinch of new legal competition and even navigating the politics of this freshly emerging industry. 
The original series writer and co-executive producer, Victoria Morrow, is set to pen the new script and return as a co-executive producer. She will be joined by Nancy Botwin lead actress, Mary-Louise Parker, who will also be co-executive producing the sequel project.
What Mary-Louise Parker has dubbed as “Weeds 4.20” will again be produced by Starz parent company, Lionsgate. The announcement was made by Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimerdurning a quarterly earnings call. The sequel is in active development, but no official title or premiere date have been released.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
