TCA: HBO announces the official end of ‘Entourage,’ hints at possible movie

Entourage
Break out the bottle service: “Entourage” is ending its run next summer.

The long-running HBO comedy will wrap things up in a short, likely six-episode final season in 2011, the pay cabler announced on Saturday. That will rep the show’s eighth season; “Entourage” first bowed in 2004.

“Next summer will definitely be the final season of Entourage,” HBO programming prexy Michael Lombardo told reporters at the TV Critics Assn. press tour.

As for a potential movie (a la “Sex and the City’s” post-HBO existence), exec producer Doug Ellin is “appropriately” reserving judgement before he commits, Lombardo said.

“He clearly wants to write a film but wants to do it when the
storytelling makes sense,” he said. “He’s thinking about how the story ends.”

HBO has an overall deal with Ellin, who’s already pitching other series to the cabler.

Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven star in “Entourage,” which Ellin created.
