As we discussed here, HBO’s gripping and gritty drama, The Wire, is coming to an end.
The fifth and final season kicks off on Sunday, January 6, 2008. But, if you can’t wait quite that long, you can pay to see the premiere six days early on Monday, December 31st via HBO’s On-Demand service. This pattern will continue throughout the 10 episode season.
Series creator David Simon has already said that the final season will focus on the media. Most of the other details are being kept under wraps but, if you’re so inclined, you should be able to pick up a few clues via these promos. Stay tuned!
