Showtime Renews The Big C And Weeds!

We hope you're not sick of half hour comedies about mothers on the edge of nervous breakdowns, because there's going to be a lot more where that came from!

Showtime announced this morning that their hit shows The Big C and Weeds have been renewed for the 2011 season!

The Big C, which is headlined by the fantastic Laura Linney as a woman attempting to take her life back after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, debuted to 6.5 million viewers - Showtime's highest rated series debut in eight years. And Weeds, which is in the middle of its sixth season, is still holding an audience of about 6 million itself, so we're not surprised that they're sticking around!

David Nevins, Showtime's President of Entertainment, says:

"For six seasons, we've happily travelled along with Nancy Botwin and we're equally as excited to follow Laura Linney and The Big C team. We're thrilled that these two signature shows will be returning to the network in 2011."

It will certainly be interesting to see how long they can extend The Big C - especially when the main character is set to die from the first episode on!

And we wonder how much longer Weeds can go - it's certainly now the same show it started out as!

What do U think?? Will U continue to watch Weeds and The Big C next year??

    Well, Breaking bad also had the main character set to die in the first episode yet three seasons later they managed to keep him alive…writers are creative wonders you know:)

    Weeds has def. gotten better this season. And the cast alone of the Big C is worth watching.

    I just finished the newest episode of Weeds online and I've got to say that it's easily my favourite show on television. I have followed it since the first episode. As far as the Big C, they can always just say, "hey, guess what, your cancer was misdiagnosed, you're not terminal. In fact, you don't even have cancer." Ever seen Breaking Bad? Enough said.
