‘Treme’ Sets Final Season Production and Episode Order


A little over a month ago, we reported here that HBO renewed their critically-acclaimed but ratings-deprived New Orleans drama Treme for its fourth and final season.

Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the cabler will begin production on the final season – that will consist of only five episodes – starting on November 5.

This announcement comes about a month after the premiere of the show’s 10-episode third season, which will continue through December.

Co-creators David Simon and Eric Overmyer shared last month that “We are going to be back for a season 3.5. HBO, upon viewing the 10 (season-three episodes) that we gave them and what we’ve done, (and) they want to see the end of the story. They fought very hard to give us half a loaf. We’re going to take it and run”.

‘Treme’ follows the trials and tribulations of New Orleans residents as they rebuild their lives and their city in one of New Orleans’ oldest neighborhoods, a historically important source of African-American music and culture.

The new next episode of the third season of ‘Treme’ will air on HBO this Sunday, November 4 at 10/9c.
