There are just six episodes left for Weeds in 2010. Thank goodness Showtime ordered a seventh season of the show, to air in 2011.
But six episodes is plenty of time for the gang to get into trouble and head off in new and unexpected directions. Click on the slideshow to view images from upcoming episodes.
And if you just can’t wait to find out what happens to the Newmans now that they’ve left Agrestic, Ren-Mar, and Seattle behind, venture on.

Armed with this information, feel free to make predictions about how things turn out. The cast was wrapping up the season just as it began on TV. Mary-Louise Parker expressed shock and surprise about the season’s conclusion in an interview just after receiving the final script.
