According to multiple sources, HBO’s Treme TV series has been renewed for a fourth and final season.
Last night, the low-rated show’s co-creators, David Simon and Eric Overmyer, revealed that the last season would be shorter than previous ones but didn’t specify a particular number. The first and second seasons had 10 and 11 installments respectively. The third, which premieres tonight, has 10 episodes.
At a screening of the season three premiere in New Orleans, the co-creators told a crowd that getting renewed was a struggle.
Simon said, “HBO, upon viewing the 10 (season-three episodes) that we gave them and what we’ve done, they want to see the end of the story. They fought very hard to give us half a loaf. We’re going to take it and run.”
What do you think? Are you glad to know there will be a fourth season of Treme? Do you wish there would be more seasons?
I just discovered this show a couple of months ago by COMPLETE accident. I watched the Spike Lee documentaries first. (When the Levees Broke and If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.) After watching those two documentaries first, then I jumped into this series. I can not believe this show was not nominated and / or won awards for the acting. I watched this series and wish my Father was still alive. He would have appreciated the the music and could have told me who the musicians were and what made them famous. I also like how some… Read more »
HBO should have advertised a bunch more. Such a good show with great actors. Somebody call Angie and Brad, see if they can help a show being made about their “hometown”.
I love, love, love this show. Besides the great writing,
acting and direction it also has the best presentation of music
I’ve EVER seen on TV.
I am so heavily connected with the characters, as was the case with
The Wire. Wendell Pierce is a hero in advocating for
NOLA. I thank HBO for investing in this show and
pray there will another five episodes.
This is one of the top shows on TV period. If you have a brain and honey boo is not on your playlist you are out of choices. The actors can act (Academy Award winner) and the writers can write….but HBO is losing Sunday night…try Treme and add some Vampire BS …have Bill Muar start taping his comedy show in the Treme and support the true disadvantaged he knows so much about….pull the plug HBO I’ve got Showtime too!!
I love this show. Treme has been a great exploration of New Orleans, its music and food. I am sorry this show has not had a greater audience. I felt the same way about the Wire.
LOVELOVELOVE THIS SHOW!!! Many people are surprised when I tell them about the show. These are native NEW Orleaneans who say they will look for it and watch it, now that they know it exists. I find this puzzling. The show is so genuine, nothing in it appears to be contrived or overdone. This is difficult when dealing with an epic city, and epic musicians whose legacy and importance as part of the story of America is unrivaled. Each time I watch I am both a spectator and a participant.Ifeel thatI am actually in the story, I connect with the… Read more »
Great show!!! Would love to see a couple of more seasons of this fine show.
Outstanding plots and acting by all concerned.
Wife and I never miss this show.
Please renew for the next two seasons.
[…] UPDATE: The series has been renewed for a fourth and final season of five episodes. […]
