HBO officially announced that Entourage will end next summer, according to THR’s Live Feed. The cable net will order a shortened final season of its longest-running series, bringing the show to a conclusion in 2011.

“The plan right now is we’ll finish up this season, we’ll do a shorter order for next season, we’ve talked about six,” said Michael Lombardo, HBO programming president. “[Creator Doug Ellin] is appropriately reserving – he wants to write a film, but wants to do it when the story will make sense. He’s pitched other shows to us. I will expect that within the next couple years [he’ll have another show on HBO]. But Entourage next summer will definitely be the final season.”

Entourage has run on HBO since 2004, and stars Kevin Connolly as Eric Murphy, Adrian Grenier as Vincent Chase, Kevin Dillon as Johnny ‘Drama’ Chase, Jerry Ferrara as Turtle, Jeremy Piven as Ari Gold, Rex Lee as Lloyd and Perrey Reeves as Mrs. Ari. Entourage centers on film star Vince Chase, who navigates the rough terrain of Los Angeles with a close circle of friends and his trusty agent.

According to the report, Curb Your Enthusiasm has no end in sight provided Larry David wants to continue the show, however The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency is finished as a series, but may get an HBO film or two. HBO execs also commented on the prospect of having David Milch, Dustin Hoffman and Michael Mann working on the same horse racing drama, Luck, saying it will “be either magic or mayhem.”
