Weeds creator Jenji Kohan has teased what fans can expect from the show's upcoming seventh season.

The new episodes will be set three years in the future, when lead character Nancy Botwin is released from prison following her arrest at the end of last season.

Kohan has said that while Nancy was away, the rest of her family have been getting on with their lives in Copenhagen, revealing that Silas has become a model, Shane has started up a puppet theatre and Andy is now in a serious relationship.

"They had their relationships and their things but there was always the sense that they were always treading water because Nancy seems to be their True North," she explained to Entertainment Weekly. "When you don't have that star in the sky, you get a little lost."

Kohan also claimed that although the family are still drawn towards Nancy and will return to her in New York, there will be some noticeable physical changes about the characters.

"Shane has mutton chops and a mohawk and he looks pretty cool, and Silas is very buff, and Andy's a little greyer, but nothing radical," she continued. "Stevie's now almost 4, so he's a little boy and he talks."

Kohan added that the expanded role of Stevie will help add a new dimension to the Botwin family dynamic.

Several special guest stars for the new season have already been confirmed, including Martin Short, Aidan Quinn and Lindsay Sloane.

Weeds begins its new season on Showtime on June 27.
