It’s official. Entourage is ending after its 8th season.
The word from HBO follows Producer Mark Wahlberg talking about its future in June. But it may yet get that feature film.
“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.”
Season 7 is currently airing in the US with 10 episodes.
“We’re going to have six episodes next year and end with a bang and then in the trailer you see (Ari Gold and his associate, Lloyd) waking up together in Vegas not knowing what happened,” Wahlberg previously said.
In other HBO news, Lombardo also said there is no end in sight for Curb Your Enthusiasm and The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency may have a movie or two but is finished as a series.
