Tv Season Info

"The Wire" creator David Simon's love letter to New Orleans in the years following Hurricane Katrina concludes with a five-episode fourth series, which opens with the city's optimism after the election of Barack Obama as president in November 2008, but Texas-born Nelson (Jon Seda) finds it hard to be in the Big Easy when the economy starts to go south. Meanwhile, Janette (Kim Dickens) prepares to open a new restaurant; Antoine (Wendell Pierce) finds himself being more than just a music teacher; Annie (Lucia Micarelli) clashes with her manager over the direction of her music; Davis (Steve Zahn) is blown away by a new sound; L.P. (Chris Coy) returns for more investigative work; Terry (David Morse) keeps burning bridges in the police department; and LaDonna (Khandi Alexander) gets busy rebuilding Gigi's, but finds time to comfort Albert (Clarke Peters), who asks his son, Delmond (Rob Brown), to carry on a sacred family tradition. Guest stars include Dan Ziskie and Michael Cerveris.

Critic Reviews for Treme Season 4

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (9)

Treme doesn't capture an authentic sense for New Orleans so much as join the city's ragged, time-honored argument about what authenticity should look like... The result is an ambitious, occasionally compelling, consistently frustrating mess of a show.

May 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Full of intriguing characters, fine actors, music and Big Easy "atmosphere," Treme -- it's pronounced "TreMAY," by the way -- never caught on, and now seems as good a time as any to ask why.

Top Critic

I'm sorry to see it go, except that it went out on such a perfect note of bittersweet complexity -- like the culture it celebrates and mourns and suggests will endure anyway, it's something to have been relished even as it's come to a close.

Jan 2, 2014 | Full Review…

Showrunner David Simon delivers the same brilliant writing that made his earlier show The Wire a cult smash.

May 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The considerable life-affirming pleasures of Treme, and the unlikely gift of its existence, gives rise to its own form of cruel optimism: it's a show so good you can't help but wish it was even better.

Apr 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Treme bids a fond and tuneful farewell to characters a few of us have come to love and to storylines that went deeply enough into the challenges of rebuilding lives in New Orleans to be considered as much journalism as TV drama.

Dec 1, 2013 | Full Review…

There's not a weak performance in the bunch.

Jan 31, 2014 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The final season of Treme, even as the series continues to overflow with the vitality of live music and an ever-evolving regional hash of international cultures, hangs on death.

Nov 29, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Even with the occasional ray of hope, Simon's general outlook is too bleak to provide much consolation, either for his characters or for the show's small but loyal audience.

Top Critic

Never as immediately gripping as The Wire, Treme still had its virtues, which the show's small, but loyal fanbase can fill you in on at length.
