As expected, HBO officially announced that Entourage will end next summer after eight seasons but may be followed by a movie. .
During the Television Critics Association fall TV previews, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said, “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 [episodes].” He added, “[Creator Doug Ellin] … wants to write a film, but wants to do it if it makes sense for the story. … I will expect that within the next couple years [he’ll have another show on HBO]. But next summer will definitely be the final season of Entourage.”
Ellin and executive producer Mark Wahlberg have had big screen plans for Vince and the guys for some time. In June, Wahlberg told MTV that that he thinks fans want a movie and that they can deliver a great one.
“We’re going to have six episodes next year and end with a bang,” he said, adding that the movie trailer can open with Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) and Lloyd (Rex Lee) “waking up together in Vegas not knowing what happened.”
During its run, Entourage earned five Emmy Awards, three of which went to Piven for supporting actor in a comedy series. The show was nominated for outstanding comedy series from 2007-09.
