'Big Love' ending
HBO announced its polygamy drama "Big Love" will return for its fifth, and final season on Sunday, Jan 16.
That tippity-tap-tap noise you hear is the sound of us breaking into a Happy Dance.
Much verbal trilling followed in HBO's email:
HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo: "It has been an honor and pleasure to work with series creators Mark V. Olsen - 'V' to his friends - and Will Scheffer on this unique and provocative series."
Okay, yes, we made up that "V to his friends" bit.
"V" and Scheffer: "When we created BIG LOVE in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell. While we were in the writers' room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered that we were approaching the culmination of that story."
No, we did not make up that we-discovered-the-story-had-ended gag. It just seems like it. They really wrote that in their statement.
In case you've missed it, "Big Love" is about a guy named Bill Henrickson, who lives in Salt Lake City, and who has three wives -- Barb, Nicki and Margene - living in three consecutive houses with their nine kids, leading lives of quiet desperation - all of which could be solved quickly if someone would give the women little hatchets. Bill Paxton, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloë Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin star.
Here's a recap of the Season 4 finale:
