Boo! From the "Let's Bum Amy Sciarretto Out" File: HBO has announced that its Emmy-nominated polygamy drama Big Love will end its run with this coming fifth season. Entourage is also wrapping up, so it's sort of like the period when the network's watershed shows The Sopranos and Sex and the City were winding down!
Big Love's fifth and final season begins airing January 16.
A press release regarding the cancellation of Big Love read as follows: "It has been an honor and pleasure to work with series creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer on this unique and provocative series, and I'm happy that they will be able to bring the story to its close the way they always envisioned. We look forward with great anticipation to collaborating with Mark and Will on their next venture."
I am a huge fan of Big Love so this news totally ruined my day. Boo.
Are you a Big Love fan>? Is this good news or bad? Had the show run its course for you or is the network snuffing out the series before all the really juicy storylines came to a head?
