Entourage Is Ending Next Year, More Talk About A Movie Spin-Off

Everybody and their dog (here’s everybody, here’s their dog) is talking about the end of Entourage as a TV series, and its potential resurrection on the big screen. The hot topic is what HBO’s programming president, Michael Lombardo, announced on the TCA Tour. He said:

The plan right now is we’ll finish up this season, we’ll do a shorter order for next season, we’ve talked about six… Entourage next summer will definitely be the final season.

You’ll have to tell me if this is more of a cruel execution or a mercy killing – I tuned out ages ago. Lots of my students have attempted to get me hooked on the show, and it has never once come close to working. Entourage and I just don’t get along.

Lombardo went on to talk about the plans that the show’s creator, Doug Ellin, has for a movie spin-off:

He wants to write a film, but wants to do it when the story will make sense.

Does that mean he’s got something like a “five years later” already in mind, and we’re waiting for the time to pass and the actors to age? Or that he just hasn’t made sense of the story yet? Fuzzy.

Entourage is the longest running series in HBO’s history, which I’m sure will ensure Ellin’s future with the network. Lombardo says that the writer-producer has pitched more series and that within a couple of years he’ll have something new on air. The perfect excuse, then, to share Ellin’s short film The Pitch:
