HBO has rolled out plans to wrap things up on a drama series. The pay-cable channel will conclude the David Simon drama "Treme" with a shortened fourth season, reports Nola.com.
Co-creators Simon and Eric Overmyer announced the show’s ending at a screening for production participants on Saturday, the piece notes. The total number of episodes, as well as the fourth season’s premiere date, aren’t yet known, the story adds.
Simon had previously said he planned to wrap up the series in four seasons, and HBO recently agreed to an abbreviated fourth season. Simon said cast members signed on during the past week — a process that was made a bit more complicated by the shorter season, the piece notes.
In his pre-screening remarks Saturday, Simon said: “We are going to be back for a season 3.5. 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.”
