HBO announced today that you can now mark in the date for the return of Entourage on your calendar. Come June 27, 2010 we’re off for another dozen episodes with Vinny, Ari, E, Drama and Turtle.
Even though I’m a little skeptical about just what else Vinny Chase and his gang can get into, I will be tuning in. A few months ago, we ironed out a wish-list of sorts for the seventh season. While I thought the show neatly tied up all storylines at the end of Season 6, we thankfully care enough about the characters to see them go through another season of “drama,” no pun intended.
However, with six seasons under the belt (2 of which were great, the others just ‘ok’), Entourage is now getting a little long in the tooth and showing it’s age. I’m really hoping that they just go back to the basics and make the show fun again. That means no movies named Medellin and no crazy girls named Ashley. But, at the very least, we’re still in for some classic one liners from Ari and Drama, you can count on that.
Entourage returns to HBO Sunday, June 27th at 10:30pm.
