Mary-Louise Parker in "Weeds"

The pot-growing Botwin family is heading back to television. 

A follow-up series to Weeds, which originally aired on Showtime, is officially in development at Startz. 

The sequel, which is currently in the works in the Lionsagte owned network, will star original star Mary-Louise Parker. According to Variety, which was first to report the news, the sequel will start 10-years after the events of the original, against the backdrop of the current climate of more widespread marijuana legalization.

“We’re thrilled to be back in business with series star and executive producer Mary-Louise Parker on what we’re calling ‘Weeds 4.20,’ already in active development at Starz, as we prepare a comprehensive and integrated rollout for one of television’s most beloved properties,” said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer.

Weeds originally ran from 2005-2012.
