Get ready for more Entourage!
Now here's something you don't see every day. A reason to actually feel good about the fact that you pay for HBO. Get this! Entourage is taking no time off between seasons three and four! Well... one week, but that doesn't really count does it?
That's right folks. When the show returns on Sunday, June 3, it'll wrap up its twenty episode third season with the finale "Adios, Amigos." The following week, there's no episode because it's The Sopranos series finale and the series premiere of John From Cincinnati. Then a week after that (Sunday, June 17), Entourage is back with the premiere of its twelve episode fourth season. My friends, get excited because that is a whole lotta Johnny Drama.
For some slightly spoilerish info (straight from the HBO press release) and the schedule (in case my previous paragraph confused you), keep reading.
Once season four gets under way, we can look forward to seeing some familiar faces. Shauna is finally going to be back. When was the last time we even saw her? I'm pretty sure it was when Vince dedicated that Aquaman roller-coaster, but I could be wrong. We can also look forward to guest starring roles from Dan Castellaneta (Homer!), Stephen Gaghan, and Anthony Michael Hall. I think I'm most excited for Gaghan though. This is the guy that wrote Traffic and Syriana, two of the most confusing (but good) films I've ever seen. I wonder if he may be tasked with rewriting Medellín?
Speaking of Medellín, looks like the film finally has a director too. The press release also indicates that Rhys Coiro has joined the regular cast. Welcome back Billy Walsh!
I love that we get this show all summer long now. It's about time HBO did something nice for us. Now, as promised, the schedule...
