Can’t wait for this season!
Nooo!!! I’m so sad! I heart Big Love!!
HBO’s relationship with Big Love is coming to an end.
Next year’s previously announced fifth season will be the last for the acclaimed polygamy drama.
The Emmy-nominated series will take its final bow the same year as Entourage, which the network is also wrapping up.
Big Love returns for its final episodes on Jan. 16.

Chloe Sevigny has a big problem with the latest season of her HBO hit show Big Love.
“It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned,” the actress, 35, recently told The Onion. Gasping, she then added, “I’m not allowed to say that!”
Even though she won a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe this year for her role as Nicki, the second of three wives, she said this season tumbled because it turned into a “telenovela.”
“I feel like it kind of got away from itself,” she went on. “The whole political campaign seemed to me very farfetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season. And with nine episodes, I think they were just squishing too much in.”
She said that HBO only gave them nine Sundays “because they have so much other original programming — especially with The Pacific — and they only have a certain amount of Sundays per year, so we only got nine Sundays. I think that they had more story than episodes. I think that’s what happened.”
She said she wasn’t the only cast member who wasn’t pleased with the direction of the show.
“Me and the girls [Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ginnifer Goodwin] definitely were not very happy with where it was going — or more kind of, ‘We really hope it’s going to work. It seems like they’re really pushing it,'” Sevigny said. “I think next season, they’re going to go back to more just the family.”
Despite the fact that she thinks the show has become “too much,” she said she hopes “the fans will stick with us and tune in next year. There’s a lot of people who really love this season, surprisingly.”
She then added, “God, I’m going to get in so much trouble.”
I absolutely agree. I love me some Big Love, but I really didn’t like this last season at all. The whole political race was really annoying!
Macaulay Culkin is rumoured to be joining the cast of HBO series Big Love.
PS: How GREAT is Big Love!!!!! It is sooooooooooooo good so far this season!
The former Home Alone star has reportedly been spotted on the set of the show visiting with cast member Chloe Sevigny and co-creator Will Scheffer.
Scheffer told TV Guide that he and the programme’s other producers are “interested” in writing a role for Culkin.
“He watches the show and we can see him fitting into either the compound or the Mormon world,” he said.
Scheffer added that Culkin would be “an interesting person to add to that mix”.
Culkin, 29, apparently shares the same agent as Big Love actress Sissy Spacek.
Big Love star Bill Paxton has said that the actor would “make a great young evangelist” on the show.
