Showtime has debuted the new season of its two acclaimed shows, "Weeds" and "The Big C", on Monday, June 27. Next week, both drama comedy series will return with story arcs following the leading ladies who still deal with their own problems.
On "Weeds", Nancy Botwin is thrown for a loop when Andy and Shane show up on her doorstep while she struggles to create a new life for herself in New York. Additionally, Silas seeks to launch a state side modeling career, and Doug looks up an old friend.
On "Big C", frustrated Cathy resorts to supernatural aid when she is not able to land a spot in the clinical trial of a new treatment by a respected oncologist (Alan Alda). Sean becomes assertive around the house while Adam capitalizes on his classmates' sympathy about his mother's illness.
"Weeds" and "The Big C" air every Monday at 10:00 P.M. and 10:30 P.M. respectively. The former has just cast Michelle Trachtenberg ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") as Emma, a low-level pot dealer who gets the attention of Silas. Michelle's character is set as a rival to Mary-Louise Parker's Nancy.
