Entourage to End Next Year

Entourage will come to an end after
next year's eighth season

The entourage will be no more next year as HBO calls time on one of its longest running shows.

The seventh season of the Hollywood based comedy is currently airing in the States (when we will get it in the UK is anybody’s guess!) but next year’s eighth season of the show will be the last.

This wasn’t a complete bolt out of the blue as exec producer Mark Wahlberg had previously hinted that the eighth season may be the last, but it is now officially confirmed.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo even revealed that the final season might be a short one: "We'll do a shorter order to finish up… We talked about six [episodes].”

Fans of Vince, Ari and the gang can take some comfort in the fact that the end of the TV show might not necessarily be the end of the story though as Entourage may have an afterlife as a feature film, the HBO executives told TV critics in LA at the weekend.

Lombardo stated that show creator Doug Ellin "clearly wants to write a film. But he also wants to do it when the storytelling makes sense. So he is clearly thinking about how the [TV] show will end."

Lombardo said HBO has a long-term relationship with Ellin and that "he's already pitched other shows to us. I would expect within the next couple of years you’ll see him with another show."

As big a fan as I am of the show, I can’t say I’m massively disappointed by this news – the show has kind of run its course now and I’d far rather see it go out on a high note than outstay its welcome and go stale.

What do you think about the end of Entouarge – are you happy or sad to see the back of Vince, Turtle, E, Drama and Ari?
