HBO has renewed Treme for a fourth and final season, a network spokesperson confirmed Sunday.
Series co-creators David Simon and Eric Overmeyer said the fourth season would get an abbreviated order, though they did not specify how many episodes, according to The Times-Picayune, which previously reported the story.
The duo made the final season announcement at a screening of Treme's third season premiere, which bows Sunday at 9 p.m., in New Orleans on Saturday, where the drama is set.
Treme has been a soft ratings performer for HBO, drawing just 664,000 total viewers (live plus same-day) to its season two finale in July 2011, but it has earned critical acclaim and won a Peabody Award in 2012.
