HBO’s Hollywood players return for their final season of Entourage on Sunday, July 24 at 10:30 p.m. The network released some new details on the eight-episode Season 8 on Wednesday.
Warning: Spoiler Alert
When we meet up with the crew, Vince (Adrian Grenier) is out of rehab and ready to go on a new venture; Ari (Jeremy Piven) is separated from his wife; Eric (Kevin Connolly) is running his own management firm; Drama (Kevin Dillon) is shooting an animated series; and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) has gone in on a tequila business and a possible new project.
Series regulars Rex Lee as Lloyd, Ari’s former assistant, who is now a full agent, Perrey Reeves as Mrs. Ari, and Rhys Coiro as director Billy Walsh, also return.
This season, the crew will be joined by the usual batch of Hollywood stars (some playing themselves), including Andrew Dice Clay, Mark Cuban, Illeana Douglas, Johnny Galecki, Rob Morrow, Alex Rodriguez, Christian Slater and stylist Rachel Zoe.
Entourage is executive produced by creator Doug Ellin, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Denis Biggs, Ally Musika and Rob Weiss.
