HBO renews 'Treme' for third season


HBO has decided to pick up David Simon and Eric Overmyer’s acclaimed drama series Treme for a third season, sources say.

The pickup comes as a bit of a surprise — the show has averaged only about 1 million viewers during its premiere runs on Sunday night (freshman fantasy series Game of Thrones is doing about 2.4 million).

But HBO is all about having high-quality exclusive content, and Treme is very much on brand for the network.

    Thank you HBO, I was worried about Treme’s ratings. The show is great, glad it’s coming back.

    Anybody who got into The Wire late should check out this show now – a pretty different vibe, but very similar amazing quality.

    • AsiaThor

      Yay! I love love love this show. I tune in every Sunday. I only subscribe to HBO because of Treme and True Blood. Thank you HBO!

    Gave the show up after the first season. The death of the character played by Goodman was so stupid and the show already has few likable characters.

    “But HBO is all about having high-quality exclusive content, and Treme is very much on brand for the network.” – Tell that to Deadwood

      “Deadwood” didn’t get canceled, the creator in charge of the show David Milch didn’t want to continue making it, he wanted to make another show and all we got was the pile of crap that was “John from Cincinnati”. HBO was holding out hope for a while that Milch would produce 1 or 2 movies which they wanted to air to tie up the series which he never attempted to produce. Can’t blame HBO for “Deadwood”.

        HBO did cancel Deadwood. While it had many more viewers than Treme (and David Simon’s previous show, the Wire) it’s production costs were over ten times those of shows like Treme and the Wire.

    Best news I have heard in a while! Treme is the best thing going on TV. I wish it was getting more coverage. This show is the best written, and best acted thing I have seen.

    What is HBO’s obsession with this terrible show?

    HBO is way too liberal for my liking now. This show is getting the charity treatment. No one comments on message boards about it. Seriously, WTF?

    • True-Lu

      HBO is “liberal”? Why? Because Treme includes a serious focus on realistic black characters? WTH?

  • Dramaqueen

    I’m so happy! I love Treme. My mom’s family is from Louisiana, and I love this show!!!!! Yipee!!!

  • Robin

    This show, True Blood, and Game of Thrones make HBO for me at the moment. I need the majority of them to keep my sub.
