Linda Hamilton to guest star on 'Weeds'
The new season picks up with Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) and her kooky family on the run after Shane (Alexander Gould) wallopped Pilar (Kate del Castillo) with a croquet mallet -- which we can only assume was simply payback for the time Pilar unsuccessfully tried killing Nancy but instead hit Shane with the bullet.
Hamilton will play an “eco-conscious marijuana grower who, along with her life partner Fiona, helps Nancy’s endeavors in Seattle take bloom," which was first reported on EW.com.
Those endeavors will be sans a vital family member: conniving mom Celia (Elizabeth Perkins); Perkins ended her five-season, Emmy-nominated run on the series last season.
In addition to Hamilton, Peter Stormare (“Prison Break”) joins the mix. He'll play a cranky German chef who isn't too keen on his new dishwasher, Andy (Justin Kirk).
The sixth season premieres Aug. 16.
So Show Trackers, what do you think of the additions?
