HBO's Tremé is getting ready to play its swan song.
The New Orleans-set drama has been renewed for a shortened fourth and final season, creator and executive producer David Simon revealed at a Season 3 premiere screening Saturday, according to The Times-Picayune.

"The first season you saw the people come back," co-creator David Simon tells TVGuide.com. "The second season, the problems began to come back. And this third season, some money and some opportunity starts to present itself. But in this country, nothing is free and nothing is without strings. Everything is a hard choice."
You can thank the premature death of Luck for the quick renewals — and returns of Girls and Enlightened. (Both will return in January 2013.) "When we made the decision to pull the plug on Luck while they were in production on the second season, we did not have a backup plan," Michael Lombardo, HBO's president of programming, told reporters at Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Wednesday. "We have new shows coming up next year, but we did not have anything ready for that period." Both series will air their 10-episode second seasons with originals running through March.
HBO also came loaded with plenty of other announcements, including a film starring Larry David, a Rolling Stones documentary and the future of True Blood and Game of Thrones. Check it out:
