WEEDS back Aug 16 sans Elizabeth Perkins, picked up by TV Guide

Here’s the latest on the Showtime series, “Weeds.” The most shocking news is the recent announcement that Elizabeth Perkins who plays “Celia Hodes” will not be returning for upcoming season 6. For now, her plans involve developing her own comedy series and also playing the role of a mother on an animated/live character film “I Hop” which “Revolves around an out-of-work slacker who runs over the Easter Bunny while driving home late. Since the bunny can’t hop with a broken leg, the slacker is pressed into duty to save Easter. The film becomes a two-hander between the iconic holiday critter and the slacker, each of whom is running from adulthood.” (source: RopeOfSilicon.com) I wonder how they’ll write Celia out of the script. I love the show, but it has gotten so bizarre since its early beginnings.
