LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- The Hollywood-themed comedy series "Entourage" is to wrap up next summer after its eighth season, HBO said.

The show stars Adrian Grenier as native New Yorker Vincent Chase, who heads west and becomes a film star. Jeremy Piven plays his tenacious agent and Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara play the friends from back home who help Vincent navigate the treacherous waters of show business.

"The plan right now is we'll finish up this season. We'll do a shorter order for next season -- we've talked about six (episodes,)" TVGuide.com reported Michael Lombardo, HBO's programming president, told the Television Critics Association during the weekend. "(Creator Doug Ellin) ... wants to write a film, but wants to do it if it makes sense for the story. ... I will expect that within the next couple years (he'll have another show on HBO.) But next summer will definitely be the final season of 'Entourage.'"
