'Entourage' Earns Another Season
HBO renews its comedy for a sixth year
HBO has picked up "Entourage" for a sixth season, meaning Vince (Adrian Grenier) will have that much more time to rebuild his fallen star image. Production on the new season is scheduled to begin early next year, with episodes scheduled to air during the summer.
"'Entourage' is that rare phenomenon in TV: a smart, sharp comedy series that continues to evolve," HBO Programming Group chief Michael Lombardo says. "[Creator] Doug Ellin and his remarkable team consistently deliver a show that's must-see viewing."
The show has undergone something of a creative revival this season after a fourth year that had a lot of critics down on the show. Early episodes this fall have focused on Vince's efforts to rebuild his career after the disastrous "Medellin," while his friend and manager Eric (Kevin Connolly) tries to expand his business.
Jeremy Piven, who plays Vince's shark agent Ari Gold, recently won his third consecutive Emmy for the role.
"We're thrilled to be back for another season," Ellin says. "HBO has been amazing in allowing the show to grow and mature. I never imagined when we started that we would make it to six seasons."
