When the stuff is this good, you've just got to have more.

That's what Showtime brass have said to writer-producer Jenji Kohan and Lions Gate Television in picking up a second season of Weeds, which earned three Golden Globe nominations Tuesday, including one for best musical or comedy series.

The series will begin production in the spring on a second season of 12 episodes for debut in the summer. Weeds stars Mary-Louise Parker as a recently widowed soccer mom who resorts to dealing pot in her suburban community to make ends meet. Parker and costar Elizabeth Perkins also earned Globe nominations for their work in the first season, which bowed in August to strong critical buzz.

For Kohan, the experience with Weeds has made her feel like "an overnight success after 15 years." She wrote the pilot on the rebound after having a rough experience with CBS on her short-lived 2004 sitcom The Stones.
