Fall TV season: HBO renews 'Treme' for a 3rd season

May 13, 2011 |  3:40 pm

Treme HBO announced today that it has picked up 'Treme,' David Simon and Eric Overmyer's drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans, for a third season.

Although the show hasn't had exciting ratings, it continues to get kind words from critics, such as our own Robert Lloyd, who pays tribute to "Treme" in this Sunday's Calendar.

"It is romantic and naturalistic at once," Lloyd writes, "as dreamy and earthy as the place in which it takes place — a place where when you die, they strike up the band. I love it as much as anything now on television."
