[DOCTOR AUDRA KITSON] Early – Mid 30′s – This pretty, smart, charming, earthy woman is Nancy’s (Mary Louise Parker) trusted doctor. Recurring Guest Lead, possibly into next season.
Mary-Louise Parker is not, we repeat not, saying farewell to Weeds once Jennifer Jason Leigh arrives. How do we know? We went straight to the source, executive producer Jenji Kohan, who tells us definitively, “No. That’s not true.” (Phew!)
Jennifer’s character, Nancy’s sister Jill, hits the scene in very big way, but as of now she won’t be sticking around very long. Jenji dishes on that and also spills who may be giving her some loving.
“Right now we’ve written two that she’s in, but as we write, we’ll see where she fits in and if she wants to come back and play,” says Jenji. “She’s doing a movie, so her schedule is kind of crazy right now. It’s a great piece of guest casting. We love having Jennifer here; we’d love her to do as many as she wants to do, but by no means does it edge out Mary-Louise.”
Just because Jill’s related to Nancy doesn’t mean she’ll be Nancy 2.0. “There’s the same sort of damage and oddness to both of them, but they manifest it in different ways. While Nancy is acting out, Jill is repressing everything, but bursting at the seams,” says Jenji.
So how does Nancy’s big sis come in the picture? “She doesn’t show up. The mountain comes to Muhammad. She gets pulled in and then pushes back,” teases Jenji. “I think Nancy views her sister as a safe harbor for her children. I don’t think Jill has that in mind.” That means trouble is definitely brewing for the Botwin family.
Speaking of trouble, Andy could be finding himself in some deep waters when he realizes it would be tough going after his bro’s widow, but the sister may be fair game. Jenji tells us, “I think they might use each other to work out some of their issues.” Sexually use each other? “I can’t say,” adds Jenji.
Which sister should Andy hook up with, Nancy or Jill? Hit the comments!

There is a chance that Mary-Louise Parker will not return for a seventh season of “Weeds“. NY Post is reporting that the lead actress of the Showtime series is looking forward to quit the show once the sixth season ends.
The show is currently in hiatus to welcome the fifth season in June. Showtime has ordered both fifth and sixth season for 13 episodes each. However, it could as well end in the sixth as an insider was quoted as saying that there would be no point in continuing without Parker. “We’d have to see if it made sense to continue, but we can’t envision the show without her,” said the insider.
Parker is under contract until sixth season but plans to exit after fulfilling the obligation. No reason or comment from the actress or rep have been put out for this and also, the insider added that there is no talk taking place between Showtime and Parker.
While the show may lose one of its members in the future, the fifth season swells with the addition of Jennifer Jason Leigh as Nancy’s estranged older sister. Leigh will be in at least two episodes, playing Jill who is confided by Nancy to take care of her son Shane.

Meet Nancy’s sister.
In her biggest TV commitment, Jennifer Jason Leigh has been tapped to recur on Showtime’s comedy series “Weeds” playing Mary-Louise Parker’s estranged older sister.
Leigh is set to appear in at least two episodes of the Lionsgate TV-produced series, which was picked up last year for Seasons 5 and 6.
As Nancy (Parker) finds herself and her family in harm’s way, she sends her brother-in-law, Andy (Justin Kirk), to takeher son, Shane (Alexander Gould), to live with her estranged older sister, Jill (Leigh).
But when Jill gets fed up with her own suburban family, she finds her way back into Nancy’s life — jealous, frustrated and intent on finally hashing things out with her little sister.
The fifth season of “Weeds” premieres in June.
Leigh, who will co-star opposite Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach’s feature “Greenberg,” is repped by UTA and Untitled.

When Weeds returns for its fifth season next month, we’re gonna pick up where we last left Guillermo: in a Mexican prison. The show’s creator, Jenji Kohan recently discussed this plotline with E! Online.
Je”I’d love to talk about the prison system and the role the Mexican mafia plays in it, but I have to be a little careful about it,” Kohan said. That’s a shame cause that sounds like a unique, bold storyline, even for Weeds!
Now, if anything happens to Guillermo while in prison, is he going to exact revenge on Nacy?
“I think so. I think a lot of people are pretty pissed at Nancy,” Jenji said.
