HBO unveiled how extensive its production plans are for its New Orleans-based drama series “Treme,” which is approaching its endgame, Deadline.com reports. The pay-cable network will begin production Nov. 5 on an abbreviated final season.
The final season — the series’ fourth — will consist of just five episodes, the story reports. HBO confirmed that the five-episode order will end the series’ run.
The story adds: “’Treme’ co-creator David Simon told a New Orleans crowd last month that ‘we are going to be back for a season 3.5. HBO, upon viewing the 10 (episodes from Season 3) 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.’”
