treme season 2 premiere HBO renews 'Treme' for Season 3

“Treme” will be back for a third season.

EW reports that HBO has given the green light for another outing of David Simon (“The Wire”) and Eric Overmyer‘s critically adored drama about post-Katrina New Orleans.

The character drama, only three episodes into its sophomore season, is not one of the network’s strongest showers in ratings. It’s roughly 1 million average audience is dwarfed by its fast-rising Sunday time slot neighbor “Game of Thrones.” The latter has seen a steady increase since the premiere, drawing around 2.4 million.

But at the end of the day, “Treme” is remains to be excellent television. And HBO does what it wants.
