Season 5 just started, but HBO is already looking ahead to Season 6 of Entourage.
The Mark Wahlberg-produced hit (as Andy Samberg reminded us on Saturday Night Live), has been renewed for a sixth season, the network announced.
"Entourage is that rare phenomenon in TV: a smart, sharp comedy series that continues to evolve," Michael Lombardo, HBO president of programming group and west coast operations, says in a statement. "Doug Ellin and his remarkable team consistently deliver a show that's must-see viewing."
Adds Wahlberg and executive producer Stephen Levinson: "We just spoke to the real Johnny Drama, and he is overjoyed by this pick-up. Most of all, we love being part of the HBO family."
Entourage is fresh off a third consecutive supporting comedy actor win for scene-stealer extraordinaire Jeremy Piven. The fifth season, chronicling Vince's (Adrian Grenier) desperate attempt to escape "movie jail," premiered Sept. 7.
