Official: 'Entourage' series will end next summer
HBO made it official: "Entourage" will end next summer.
The network will order a shortened final season of its longest-running series, possibly only six episodes, which will bring the show to a conclusion in 2011.
"The plan right now is we'll finish up this season, we'll do a shorter order for next season, we've talked about six," said Michael Lombardo, HBO programming president. "[Creator Doug Ellin] is appropriately reserving -- he wants to write a film, but wants to do it when the story will make sense. He's pitched other shows to us. I will expect that within the next couple years [he'll have another show on HBO]. But 'Entourage' next summer will definitely be the final season."
Also: "Curb Your Enthusiasm," executives said, has no end in sight provided Larry David wants to continue the show, which should return next year; "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" may have an HBO movie or two but is finished as a series; the prospect of having David Milch, Dustin Hoffman and Michael Mann working on the same horse-racing drama "Luck" will "be either magic or mayhem."
