In some great news for the fantastic new series Treme, HBO has announced it has committed to a second season of the show. This, after only airing the debut episode of the first season this past Sunday.

In making the announcement, Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, said, “I can’t think of another show that is more emblematic of what we aspire to be as a network than Treme. In the tradition of The Wire, David Simon and Eric Overmeyer have embarked on an exploration of the soul of one of the world’s most unique cities through the lives of an exquisitely crafted cast of characters.”

This is exhilarating to hear. What with Treme and HBO’s announced development of the George R.R. Martin fantasy series Game of Thrones, things are looking pretty creative in the hour-long business over at HBO.
