Say what you will about the negative impact of ‘Weeds‘ wobbly storylines. The truth is, what once began as a subversive dramedy about a single suburban pot dealing mom has mutated into something very different. And at times (we’re looking at you, maternity store/money laundering season four) something difficult to digest. As a result, viewers have fled. But if the trailer for season six reveals anything, it’s that there’s hope for the aging series (or else someone did a really great job editing this promo).

As the season starts, The Botwin’s are on the run following Shane’s deft employment of a croquet mallet as a murder weapon. They head North to settle down and reinvent themselves as The Newman’s. They start working at a hotel. Nancy wears a crazy wig and learns how to make hash.  Andy appears to be some sort of pirate pastry chef. And Shane and Silas become a nanny and a bellhop, respectively. Freeloader Doug is left not-so-alone to his devices, and Celia – well Celia isn’t in this preview because Elizabeth Perkins won’t be returning this season.

Take a peek at the trailer below and let us know: will you be watching this season?
